It's just smart enough to fully enjoy. It's a sweet movie.

A unique and quirkily entertaining film. The problem is that Paul Gordon brings this realistic story to a totally unrealistically contrite "wrap-up" ending. The last ten minutes of this film almost ruin it. But, this is a film well worth watching. All of the performances are top notch -- particularly Johnny Mars' portrayal of the gentle-hearted stoner boy.

Happy Poet seems to stretch in some scenes but if you stick with it, it's a refreshing life achievement film.

On a positive note, the poem "Chasm" was worth rewinding to hear a a half dozen times or so. Otherwise, a pointless, crappy movie with boring actors playing bored (and boring) roles. Cannot fathom the intelligently dearth vacuum of the minds of those rating this film in the 70% range. Huh?

between a 6/10 and 7/10, the smiley ending, most likely meant to be ironic, feels tacked on. But the consistent comic tone of those earlier scenes--a gentle squirm--makes The Happy Poet a promising debut.

It's got a very dry sense of humor and because of this it'll be a very hit or miss movie, but either way it's definitely got some funny memorable lines.

Loved it. Says a lot about running a small business. And life.
