After Ever Happy (out Sep 8) is the 4th movie in the franchise and is completely void of surprises and new ideas. There’s no meaningful arc to the two lead protagonists, the supporting cast offer next-to-nothing, and the storyline is likely to fade from memory within hours of leaving the cinema. Even the most passionate of After devotees must realise they’re being played with by this point. It’s tired, lazy filmmaking. Grade: C-.
