Movie Info

A college student clashes with his co-ed roommate, then falls for her in this romantic comedy. Sheltered freshman Chris Wooden (Patrick Dempsey) arrives at his university ready to hone his writing skills. His hard-partying roommate, however, proves to be a distraction. Alex Page (Helen Slater) -- short for Alexandra -- has been placed on a guys' floor by mistake, and the aspiring actress/good-time girl drives Chris crazy. Eventually, as both students hone their respective crafts and spend more time together, they become friends and finally lovers. But Alex's freewheeling ways put a kink in things; Chris is an old-fashioned guy, and he wants a plain-vanilla girlfriend. Things come to a head when a random biker Alex promised to marry shows up looking to rearrange Chris' face. Happy Together is one of the few feature credits of Mel Damski, who has directed countless TV movies since the late '70s. Astute viewers will notice a pre-Thelma and Louise Brad Pitt in a small role.more

Audience Reviews for Happy Together

A sappy romance movie, but I sort of enjoyed it anyway. Overall, it's okay.

Super Reviewer

Although this movie is predictable, unrealistic, and sappy, I sort of enjoyed it. I loved Slater, she gives a good performance, her character reminds me of Liza Minnelli in Cabaret. Of course, Dempsey's character could have been played by many other better actors, but he gives his best in the role. Overall, a so-so movie, but if you're a girl in college, like me, you'll enjoy it anyway.
