Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Wayans and West, who play Jake and Claire, are the type of endearing performers that can elevate mediocre material to something charming and funny. That's a good thing, because outside of those two, Happy Together relies on an incredibly thin premise -- a young celeb moves in with his accountant -- plus an uninteresting supporting cast and a mixed bag of jokes. But Wayans and Stevens bring such charm and gameness to their roles that they're very easy to root for, and can occasionally wring big laughs out of nothing, like their performance of Boyz II Men's "End of the Road" for their outgoing answering machine message.
