Smiley Face

Critics 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.

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

    December 28, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • 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.

    December 26, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Basically a sketch padded out to feature length, the film constantly hovers on the edge between amiable and annoying.

    Arguably Anna Faris' best performance, it's not amazing but it's not dull either. I didn't like any of the characters but given that it had a banging soundtrack, I can forgive Araki.

    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" hahahahah

    Compared to the films I have seen her in lately Anna Faris is hilarious! But the movie is just all over the place and gets kinda boring near the end.

    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.
