Fantastic!
31 January 2014 | by JohnnyBeeGoodeSee all my reviews

Warning: The spoiler is in the title. This is my first IMDb Review and I will keep it brief, as those before me did a great job summarizing the nuts and bolts of the Film. I am not a movie fanatic (by any stretch), however, if you knew me, you would KNOW that I would probably not publish a film review; much less, on a film titled, "Happy".

In my opinion, I am not "grumpy" but "Happy" really brought a smile to my face. Reason being, the film is 110% accurate; I cannot say that about much of anything these days but "pure", "fresh", and "authentic" (along with, the aforementioned, "accurate") ruminate in my head as brief descriptors. It is well worth the seventy-five (75) minute run time, guaranteed.

In closing, this film is not what I expected it to be (I rated it a 10 out of 10) but much, much more. For this I am grateful (and happy). Enjoy!
