    ★★★★

    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.

    Tis a film with heart. Real, real heart. And soul. And Carpe Diem. And raw, merciless performances by each of the perfectly picked actors. Robin Williams proves to be one of the best and most genuine in the industry. Undeniable gift. Ethan Hawking was a charmer. I'm only left wholly broken and stunned in the end. Bravo Captain. Bravo Dead Poets.

    A thought stuck with me after rewatching this: We all need a John Keating in our lives. And we might as well be one ourselves too.

    My favorite cancer film.

    It wasn't too light that it can be called shallow. And it wasn't too heavy that it can be called overdramatic.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character hit the spot where no other 'cancer' film could seem to hit. The rawness of his thoughts cut through the screen and got me thinking and realizing all whilst empathizing. And laughing (thanks, Seth Rogen).

    This wasn't just a 'cancer' film though-- There was more than the sickness. Real friendships. Clueless newbie counselors. Cheating girlfriends. Awkward blooming connections. Overbearing mothers. Sick fathers. It all perfectly blended. Very, very intelligent take.

    One of my favorite movies of all-time.

    This film is very, very thought provocative and engaging. Edward Norton lets you in completely in his character, he is just so astounding here. His performance really deserved his nomination for Academy Award for Best Actor.

    I think nobody could watch this movie and not think that its plot was strong and that its message was spot on.
