What Is Happiness and How Do We Get It?
3 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has a nice message although I could see it coming all the way from right field. Elliott Gould plays an inventor who wakes up one day and decides to build a "happiness machine." He takes all his childhood junk and puts it in a framework. There is a seat in there and a handle that starts the thing. His dreams are seen as crazy by most people. His wife keeps bringing him back to earth. His eccentricities begin to embarrass the family. Only his littlest child is on board with this. But he is so caught up, he can't see the harm. But ultimately there is a last word and it is quite charming. Like many dreamers, he can't see the forest for the trees, accepting complexity where simplicity will manage nicely.
