Goofs

When Jane was originally in the professor's home the professor's mother gave her orange juice to drink. Then later on the Ferris Wheel in Jane's flashback of the incident she was drinking a yellow drink, presumably lemonade. Although this could be the way she remembered the drink because she was high the whole time. See more »

Quotes

Agent: [on the phone] So, listen up Jane. I really busted my ass getting you this audition, so please, please don't fuck it up. I mean it seems like you don't give a shit about any of this. Do you? Do you even give a shit?
[long pause]

I did not like it too much
16 April 2008 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

I had interest in watching Smiley Face because director Gregg Araki made The Doom Generation and Mysterious Skin,two films I liked pretty much.But Smiley Face disappointed me a little bit.The main idea behind this movie was good but the development was too simple and generic.I think that the main concept could have gone more far away with a better screenplay.Another fail this movie has is that it's boring on some moments and I also found it too self-indulgent.But,not everything is bad on this movie.Anna Faris shows an enormous talent for the comedy.Her performance is great and I hope to see her in more comedies.The film has some good ideas and,with some exceptions,it's not boring.Smiley Face is a failed experiment that,by my point of view,could have gone more far away.Still,I hope to see more movies from Araki.He's obviously a talented director and I think this is only a little false move.
