Movie Info

Married couple Bob and Susan Howard (Rob Corddry & Alicia Silverstone) decide to see a marriage counselor named Judy Small (Michaela Watkins), who recently relocated close to their home in Los Angeles. When Bob and Susan first meet Judy, she appears competent, intelligent, and trustworthy, with a track record of other couples that she's treated successfully without incident. But Bob and Susan's particular emotional dynamic is a trigger for Judy's dark and conflicted impulses. Suggesting that she see them separately, Judy subtly puts them at odds with one another and brings their marriage to the breaking point in a comically escalating series of manipulations.

Critic Reviews for Bad Therapy

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

While there's a spark of intrigue to the concept of "Bad Therapy," it's too broad and shallow and never pursues its furthest, most outrageous ends. Ultimately, it's just not worth psychoanalyzing.

[Bad Therapy] contains so many promising elements that it's a shame that it never figures out how to mold them into a satisfying shape.

April 17, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

"Bad Therapy" is the cinematic equivalent of lukewarm water.

Directed by William Teitler with anonymous functionality yet no trace of spark or wit, Bad Therapy seems to fancy itself très naughty but feels formatted to within an inch of its life...

April 13, 2020 | Full Review…

Bad Therapy is a muddled film that is tripped up by its poorly executed screenplay and underdeveloped characters.

Bad Therapy will vanish from your memory in 20 minutes.
