Likable performers and novel storyline notwithstanding, the comic drama stumbles, leaving audiences with unsatisfying answers to its magic-tinged mystery.
The irony is that as Gallner's performance gets stronger, the film around him grows weaker.
The strands converge at the end, as you knew they would, but Mr. Thompson's insights never rise beyond the level of gauzy group therapy.
Bad movies are a dime a dozen, but the truly pitiable ones are few and far between. Oliver Thompson's debut is spellbindingly awful, but most of it is touched with a guilelessness that makes it difficult to hate.
Ultimately cloying and unfocused ...
Is precious approach to grief and recovery overwhelms any nuance the script may have.
It's hard to hate Oliver Thompson's debut feature; it's a truly heartfelt effort, but it's also not very good. WELCOME TO HAPPINESS is an arrhythmic mess of ideas and scenes, sabotaged by a bad ending.
The gradual revealing of the mystery is what makes the film ultimately so rewarding and enjoyable to watch.
Its self-conscious eccentricity is so banal that it feels like a parody of 'the American indie.' Behold magic rocks and a Significant fortune cookie!
As with many feel-good comedy-dramas, Welcome to Happiness has quite a few dark moments, but then, Oliver Thompson shows himself to be the guy to watch for future fantasies of the Wes Anderson type.
Welcome to Happiness doesn't consistently deliver on the title, but it has its moments.
The three main female characters are little more than caricatures (sexy girlfriend, shrewish authority figure, and flouncy eye candy) who only relate to the men, and the film's final 20 seconds are undeserved at best.
