It was OK....
15 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

I thought the movie was OK..nothing spectacular. Joe Boyd is locally known in Cincinnati for doing superb improv but 'Happy' isn't where his talents shine. The Joyce Heller character played by Rebecca St. James is dry and unfeeling even though her character is supposed to be one that is delivering kindness with a teaching vibe. She just doesn't show much warmth, in my opinion. Joe Boyd is a great teaching pastor and a great speaker but the scripted word just isn't his strong suit. The parts of the movie that were supposed to be funny that were performed by Boyd are his best parts. His seriousness in the movie just feels strained. The story line is good and the message is there, the execution just doesn't do it for me.
