Smiley Face (2007)
Critic Consensus: Although many of the jokes have been done before, Anna Faris's bright performance and Gregg Araki's sharp direction make Smiley Face more than your average stoner comedy.
Jane F, an unsuccessful slacker actress, is having a bad day. And it's getting more outrageous and comically surreal by the minute. Jane's misadventures begin when she treats herself to a batch of cupcakes left unattended by her psycho roommate that prove not as innocent as they appear, Soon, she is trying to cross town so she can repay an unforgiving drug dealer, attend an audition, and somehow replace the precious cupcakes. Bumming a ride from her roommate's friend--who is totally infatuated with her--she sets out on a long, strange trip. And, when the original manuscript of the Communist Manifesto falls into her hands, things really get out of control. … More

Critic Reviews for Smiley Face
Despite its laid-back script, Smiley Face is as prankishly political as Mr. Araki's Doom Generation...
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.
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.
Basically a sketch padded out to feature length, the film constantly hovers on the edge between amiable and annoying.
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.

|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?|
