Happy is one of those movies that will make you a better person for having seen it!
8 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An excellent, thought provoking movie that will grab your attention and your heart. This should be required viewing for everyone. It is interesting and rewarding that Hollywood would produce for us a documentary on Happiness but at the same time has been a large contributor to trying to make us believe, falsely, what makes us happy. There is a well done piece also about what doesn't make kid's happy. It seems a shame that the producers found it necessary to search around the world to find happiness. My prayer is that it will abound and be readily evident in and around each one of us.

A great movie that will warm your heart, stir your soul and hopefully make you think about a practical application in your own life.
