A pleasant if lightweight plea for folks to quit the rat race and stop and smell the roses.

A grab bag of ideas about how to transcend everyday misery, using insights from an international group of scientists, religious and government figures, and regular people.

Audience Reviews for Happy

What makes us happy? Is it money and power or compassion and friendships? This documentary tries to help us decide.

Red Lats

Super Reviewer

Quite the uplifting documentary that's part therapeutic, inspiring and down right inspiring via anecdotes of those who are living meaningful, happy lives with less than what Western Society deems as requisites. Buddhist / Dalai Lama teachings anyone?


An interesting concept, but not executed as well as I would have liked. Didn't touch my heart nor inspire sympathy, apathy, or anything else for that matter.
