Movies: Happiness

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.

0 out of five.

  1. As I said to Jaynee, “If they named this movie ‘Depression’ no one would have gone to see it.” “Happiness” sounds like such a fun movie, right? No way. I think this movie wanted to be “American Beauty” and show the underbelly of society, but it failed miserably. Jaynee threatened to ban me from her Netflix list because of this. And the movie got three stars on Netflix. What’s up with that?
