Bridgit Mendler Appears Alongside Dennis Quaid in the New Netflix Series, 'Merry Happy Whatever'

By

Merry Happy Whatever dissects an uncomfortable topic most young people will be familiar with: the difficulties of introducing a long-term partner to the family. 

The series chronicles the struggles of twenty-something Emmy (Bridgit Mendler) and her musician boyfriend, Matt (Brent Morin) who fail to meet the impossible expectations of her grumpy father, Don (Dennis Quaid). 

Will the family find peace and happiness? Or is the duo's future completely doomed? 

Merry Happy Whatever is a Christmas sitcom with a dark twist. 

The eight-episode-long Netflix series zooms in on Matt's quest to gain recognition by the members of the family, and most importantly, the father, Don – only to transform his shattering failures into the butt of the joke. 

Having arrived at the Philadelphia airport full of hope, the musician is to realize that working his way into the tightly-knit circles of the Quinn family is not an easy task.
