Critic Reviews for Smiley Face

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (23) | Rotten (12) | DVD (6)

Despite its laid-back script, Smiley Face is as prankishly political as Mr. Araki's Doom Generation...

December 28, 2007
New York Times
Top Critic

Dylan Haggerty has written an eleventh-hour candidate for the funniest movie of 2007, that Gregg Araki has directed his finest film since 1997's Nowhere, and that Faris, flawless, rocks their inspired idiot odyssey in a virtuoso comedic turn.

Village Voice
Top Critic

It's a fittingly loose, shambling little nothing of a comedy that's occasionally inspired, but at least a draft or two short of its potential. Still, it's a pleasure to watch Faris wander slack-jawed through a surreal day in Los Angeles.

One shudders to think what Smiley Face might have been with someone like Paris Hilton in the role. But Faris has this character -- a bright, sweet college graduate with a temporarily incapacitated brain -- down perfect.

The real reason to invest your time is Anna Faris, America's best-kept comedy secret and long overdue for the kind of major stardom her male counterparts enjoy as a matter of course.

Time Out New York
Top Critic

Basically a sketch padded out to feature length, the film constantly hovers on the edge between amiable and annoying.

Faris's prodigious comic gifts can only go so far with a one-note premise.

Full Review… | December 27, 2008

A limp, unfunny time-waster.

Lessons of Darkness

Anna Faris receives a well-deserved spotlight role, and her funniest character to date, in director Gregg Araki's stoner comedy Smiley Face.

Full Review… | August 28, 2008
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Smiley Face semble avoir été écrit en quatrième vitesse sur un coin de table par un étudiant passant le plus clair de son temps caché à fumer autre chose que des cigarettes

Full Review… | August 7, 2008

This stoner romp is great farcical fun, even if it never seems to get anywhere.

Full Review… | March 20, 2008
Shadows on the Wall

Anna Faris is radiantly daft; she keeps the movie going all by herself.

Full Review… | January 18, 2008

...there's simply no overlooking the pervading vibe of silliness.

Reel Film Reviews

Maybe this is funny if you're actually stoned. When taken sober, not so much.

Full Review… | December 26, 2007
Flick Filosopher

Working from a script by TV actor Dylan Haggerty, [director] Araki manages to capture what he's been trying to say all along about the lives of the stoned and indifferent with the kind of effortlessness those earlier attempts sorely lacked.

Full Review… | December 26, 2007
TV Guide's Movie Guide

Anna Faris is alternately hilarious and annoying in this stoner comedy.

Full Review… | December 23, 2007

This is a full-force, all-purpose performance by Faris with the kind of grace that would get winks from the likes of silent screen greats.

Full Review… | December 21, 2007

Smiley Face belongs to Faris, an actress who is some kind of treasure.

Full Review… | December 21, 2007
Los Angeles Daily News

Faris gamely goes Garbo and Lombard one better, taking her cute little firecracker looks and being willing to go full-out to appear appropriately, hilariously awful when the story calls for it.

Full Review… | December 21, 2007
Film Journal International

Araki's latest is surprisingly mellow in its examination of ganja-fueled apathy.

Audience Reviews for Smiley Face

Its really funny until you realize that smoking pot can ruin your life in less than 24 hours. I liked it since it actually had a realistic view of what its like being smacked and how other people see you.

Dealer: "You're going to have to pay me"
Anna Faris: Oh my GOD! Are you going to kill me?!
Dealer: "No Im a pot dealer, Ill probably take your couch or something"

Fuck. Just get high and watch Smiley Face and appreciate its complete loopiness and the incredible perceptiveness with which it depicts stoned behavior. The only times it falters is when it breaks the illusion with something vaguely out of place (Anna Faris's meat factory diatribe), but chances are if you're watching the movie correctly you'll probably laugh anyway. Not for everyone, obviously, but sure to please its intended audience.

This movie follows the adventures of a girl who had about 8 too many pot cupcakes. Her logic is shot. I thought it was really funny, but frustrating. Burn outs stress me out. But after watching this movie I can see what prop 19 didn't pass, everyone got too high and forgot to vote.

Smiley Face Quotes

Steve the Dealer: Simple reaganomics apply to the production of hemp. Jane F.: Just because weed isn't taxed doesn't mean it exists in some sort of, you know, laissez-faire paradigm or whatever, Steve the Dealer: Did you just use 'paradigm' in a sentence?

Roscoe Lee Browne: This is the story of how of how a person got from point A to point Z. Some call it fate, others chance. But whatever you call it, it sure is an interesting thing to ponder, don't you think?
