I never thought it would happen. I never thought I’d actually see a movie worse that “Criminal Law”, or “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me”. But it did happen.
Folks, “Happiness” is by far the most despicable, disgusting piece of garbage I have ever seen. This movie had no redeeming value and if I had seen it in a movie theater I would have left after 20 minutes and demanded my money back. It was foul, horrific, incredibly depressing and downright repulsive.
I can’t believe I actually watched the whole thing, but I kept waiting for SOMETHING good to happen, and nothing ever did. Each character just got progressively worse and worse and the story just kept getting more foul and I should have just turned it off. When it was over I told Denis, “I feel like I need to go take a shower that movie was so repulsive.”
I just can’t believe an actor like Philip Seymour Hoffman, someone I respect and admire as an actor, could have read this script and said, “Yeah! I wanna do that movie!”
There is arthouse, and there’s garbage. This one is purely meant for the latter.
