When you see cover art like the one belonging to Better Dayz, there’s usually something fishy going on. While York Entertainment’s overall presentation of its films, including box art and DVD setup, improved during 2002, high concept animation would take another year to become a regular occurrence. So there were two possibilities in my mind. Either Better Dayz’s artwork was simply made by the film’s producers, or the producers of Better Dayz were the kind of geniuses who didn’t think that hiring a still photographer was a necessary budgetary expenditure. When the second option comes to be the truth, that’s usually a sign of bad things to come.

I’m not entirely sure what the correct answer is, but no matter what the reasoning behind the boxart is, Better Dayz is still bland and unentertaining. It’s essentially a drama about a family who has recently lost their father, and how they struggle to keep themselves afloat whilst dealing with the pressures of living in an urban environment. The young teenage girl of the family falls for what appears to be a sweet, albeit older, man, who seduces her into a life of sex and light drugs. Naturally, this leads to a lot of conflict, with only the final scene between the two succeeding in the least.

Despite the film not delivering greatness, Norman C. Linton, who acted as (take a deep breath) director, writer, producer, executive producer, and unit production manager on Better Dayz gave a good effort and gets my kudos for trying to make a watchable drama in a genre overrun by action.

Unfortunately, he failed.

Now available on a double-sided DVD alongside Rest in Peace Cuervo Jones.
