Go Get Yourself Loved
Captures a generational moment - young people on the cusp of truly growing up, tiring of their reflexive cynicism, each in their own ways struggling to connect and define what it means to love and be loved. Six New Yorkers juggle love, friendship, and the keenly challenging specter of adulthood. Sam Wexler is a struggling writer who's having a particularly bad day. When a young boy gets separated from his family on the subway, Sam makes the questionable decision to bring the child back to his apartment and thus begins a rewarding, yet complicated, friendship. Sam's life revolves around his friends-Annie, whose self-image keeps her from commitment; Charlie and Mary Catherine, a couple whose possible move to Los Angeles tests their relationship; and Mississippi, a cabaret singer who catches Sam's eye.
Is HappyThankYouMorePlease a great movie? A perfect movie? A five star movie? By all accounts, no. By the sum of its parts it's messy, uneven, maybe a bit contrived and cloying.
But I love it dearly. I frequently find myself thinking about it. I revisit it more than I do most movies. And I think the reason is that, for all its rough edges, HappyThankYouMorePlease is a purely sweet, uncynical film. It's a movie that unashamedly wears its heart on its sleeve and tells you to believe in love, and a chance for happiness. And it does so in a sincere and kind way, unlike most of the manufactured romantic comedies of the early 21st century (e.g. Katherine Heigl films).…
Josh Radnor's HappyThankYouMorePlease is another one of those films that does the several interconnected stories thing. There's no shortage of those in the world, some are good, some are okay, and some are awful. This one fits snuggly into the okay range. It's perfectly likable, but doesn't really do anything that stands out and elevates it to a really good film. I'm glad I saw it, but if I hadn't it wouldn't be a big deal.
Ron's recommendation: It's worth seeing once.
Josh Radnor's directorial debut Happythankyoumoreplease is not as good as his second venture Liberal Arts but it's still a highly entertaining feel good film.
Radnor directs, writes, and stars in a small and a plot less film (in sorts).
Radnor plays a writer who is on the subway hurrying to an interview when he meets a kid name Rashean (Michael Algieri) who has been separated from what's thought to be his family. Radnor as Sam Wexler assumes responsibility automatically after a few attempts to separate from Rashean.
Overall I personally love both of Josh Radnor's films and I can only hope he grows and continues to make feel good film like his first two.
Happythankyoumoreplease... What kind of name is that?
Josh Radnor's debut flick is certainly not as good as the follow up "Liberal Arts", but it's a pretty good movie nonetheless. It is consisted of several stories about love or what it means to be loved. I really like the quirkiness and awkwardness of the story with Josh Radnor and the kid. It's really sweet. The other stories were okay, but the characters weren't as funny or interesting as the main story. I can't wait to see what next Josh Radnor has in store. I really like his style and quirkiness. He's sorta like the poor man's Wes Anderson.
Josh Radnor's written and directorial debut from 2010, I watched his 2nd film Liberal Arts last year from 2012 and I thought that film was generally well made. Happythankyoumoreplease is quite simple with a likeable story, however there isn't a great deal that stands out in the film, it's okay. Josh Radnor has laid down some pretty good foundations in both films and has the potential to made some great films in the future in my opinion. I'll look forward to seeing what he does next.
One can easily catch on the style of Josh Radnor by seeing his work. He’s quirky, he’s character-oriented, he’s comedic and heartfelt. Happythankyoumoreplease is exactly that. This indie dramedy project doesn’t fail in charming its audience – whether that be through its appealing soundtrack, a few thought-provoking lines, or the promise that is Josh Radnor.
If you’re looking for something grand and mind-blowing to watch, I wouldn’t exactly recommend this movie. But if you’re open to something good and interesting (endearing too perhaps), put this on your list.
You can tell a dude wrote this because five seconds after Kate Mara calls Ted Mosby the most unattractive man in the world she gives him back his apartment key and he tosses it back to her and she laughs and keeps it.
Also I thought Zoe Kazan's love interest and the first guy Malin Akerman was with were the same person for a good 10 minutes because every time the actors were off screen I forgot what they looked like.
quite sweet. not really anything special and a bit pretentious at times but it has some really lovely moments and I'm glad I finally got round to watching it.
There are waaaay too many close-ups in this movie. Zoom out, Josh. Zoom out. Also, Tony Hale is very endearing in this.
i did not have a moment's peace this entire movie because i was far too stressed about this child's wellbeing
"You write short stories and I think you like living short stories... but I'm kinda ready for the novel, ya know?" ... don't walk out on this before it's started... wow, Her... You're worth the adoration Annie.

Πως θα γινει να κανει ο Josh Radnor καθε χρονο μια ταινια;
A bizarro Pursuit of Happiness meets love story. Loose focus that couldve been refined into something more.
Feel good movie - so fun to watch!
I've a thing for Josh Radnor, and this film debut is a genuine crowd pleaser even if it is a tad bit clichéd.
