Sam and Rasheen's icky pas de deux is coarsely shoehorned into a movie that juggles three tepid romantic mini-dramas.

It's sluggish and trite and irrelevant in a way that suggests that the TV soundstage is a kind of hothouse that Radnor doesn't leave often enough.

[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.

It's an observant and heartfelt film, with turns of dialogue that show that writer-director Josh Radnor really can write.

Kate Mara gives a breakout performance. She should be a star.

As if this weren't enough baggage for one movie, especially an indie movie, Radnor front-loads the proceedings with further complications.

Radnor offers an entertaining and not especially self-indulgent ensemble comedy about young love in the big city that spotlights an appealing cast of youthful fringe-of-Hollywood talent.

This unbearably cutesy and hackneyed movie is a vanity piece starring, and written and directed by, mild sitcom presence Josh Radnor.

A film whose extreme self-consciousness begins with the title and carries through.

Treating their problems like they're the most important crises in the world is what people in their 20s do, but that doesn't mean we have to go along for the ride.

HappyThankYouMorePlease features enough well-observed touches to prove Radnor deserved this shot...

With very little modification, the relationship woes of the six chirpy young New Yorkers in this (happythankyoumoreplease) self-absorbed indie could be reworked into episodes of TV's How I Met Your Mother.

Arrested Development's Tony Hale nearly overcomes the gently worthless script.

With the exception of Akerman's Annie, the characters are uniformly annoying, their stories insubstantial and the tone one of smug contentment. Production values are grade-A.

This clearly is an actors' movie, and they all blossom in that environment.
