We gave it a C

You can’t blame Michael C. Hall for wanting to squeeze in a movie during his Dexter hiatus. But surely he could have found something better than The Trouble With Bliss. As scruffy East Village screwup Morris Bliss, Hall shares a grubby apartment with his disappointed father (Peter Fonda), gets involved with a stalkerlike 18-year-old (Brie Larson), and floats through his pointless days and nights like a helpless child prone to bad decisions. Michael Knowles’ aimless comedy is full of offbeat characters, but has surprisingly little on its mind. (Also available on VOD) C
