"Happy Christmas" movie quotes follow a man and wife who take his irresponsible sister into their home. The comedy-drama film was written and directed by Joe Swanberg. After competing at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, "Happy Christmas" opened on July 25, 2014.

In "Happy Christmas," 20-something Jenny (Anna Kendrick) breaks up with her boyfriend and moves to Chicago to stay with her brother, Jeff (Joe Swanberg), his wife, Kelly (Melanie Lynskey) and their infant baby. Jeff and Kelly know that Jenny is on the irresponsible side with her excessive drinking, but give her a chance anyway. However, when Jenny fails to babysit the baby as promised, tensions rise.

Jeff and Kelly give Jenny another chance to prove herself, despite her hard partying ways along with friend Carson (Lena Dunham). In addition to making friends with their regular babysitter/pot dealer, Kevin (Mark Webber), Jenny actually inspires Kelly to reexamine her life as a novelist and ends up changing everyone in the household in one way or another.

"Happy Christmas" joins the other great films in theaters in the summer of 2014 including "Hercules," "Lucy," "Magic in the Moonlight," "A Most Wanted Man," "Planes: Fire & Rescue," "Sex Tape," "Wish I Was Here, "And So It Goes, "Dawn of Planet of the Apes," "A Long Way Down," "Tammy," "Earth to Echo," "Deliver Us from Evil," "Transformers: Age of Extinction," "Snowpiercer," "Begin Again," "They Came Together," "Think Like a Man Too," "22 Jump Street, "How to Train Your Dragon 2," "Hellion," "The Rover," and The Fault in Our Stars."
