Josh Radnor (CBS' Emmy-nominated How I Met Your Mother) wrote, directed and stars in happythankyoumoreplease, a sharp comedy centered on a group of 20-something New Yorkers struggling to figure out themselves, their lives and their loves. On his way to a meeting with a publisher, aspiring novelist Sam Wexler (Radnor) finds Rasheen, a young boy separated from his family on the subway. When the quiet Rasheen refuses to be left alone with social services, Sam learns the boy has already been placed

Sam and Rasheen's icky pas de deux is coarsely shoehorned into a movie that juggles three tepid romantic mini-dramas.
[A] perky, if undistinguished, emulation of a mid-period Woody Allen relationship comedy...
A case of when bad scripts happen to good actors. Given its similarities to a bygone sitcom, one might call it Friends without benefits.
There is a sweetness to Radnor's character and to his film. What there is not is a sense of urgency, of a desire to find out what happens next.
Let's hope "The New Zach Braff" learns from the original Zach Braff to strike while the iron is hot and not dither away his potential waiting for that perfect "next project" to come along.
...a striking, promising debut that hopefully bodes well for Radnor's future endeavors...
Radnor's characters never shut up, which here at least is a very good thing. I'd love to see a Comfortablywiseryourewelcomesurprisinglycontent sometime in his future.
...all but bursting with vague longings and inchoate emotions and all the unspeakable, unsoundable stuff that fills up hearts
resembles a sitcom -- but the good kind, or at least one you might not flip past immediately on a Monday night
Familiarity is the problem with Josh Radnor's strangely titled writing/directing debut.
The territory has been well mined, most famously in Reality Bites and Garden State.
What will they do? And, more important, why should we care about their trivial hipster quandaries?
According to the rules of grown-up cinema, Happythankyoumoreplease should be irritating as hell. Well, Radnor's worked some magic.
The comedy is called "Happythankyoumoreplease," but a better title would be "Icknogoaway."
These three vaguely intersecting plots have plenty of nice moments among them and performances that shine, especially Mara and Hale's.
Audience Reviews for HappyThankYouMorePlease
- Sam #2: It's not easy to be adored, you impeticuler you have a tougher time with it then most, I get that, but I want you to give it a try. Think of it as an experiment. I promise I will be very wonderful at adoring you Annie. It an area where, I think I got a great deal of talent. You're worth the adoration Annie, your worth it, and the fact that you don't believe it, has nothing to do with weather its true or not, it is true for me, and that is all that matters.
- Mary-Catherine: I always thought of that as the moment you came into focus... like 'oh, there you are'.
- Sam Wexler: F***! Don't swear.
- Mary-Catherine: You can't just keep him. He's not a goldfish!
- Annie: Sadness be gone, let's be people who deserve to be loved, who are worthy, cause we are worthy.
