'HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE': Three Stars (Out of Five)Actor Josh Radnor (most well known for staring in the popular TV sitcom 'HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER') makes his directing and writing debut with this indie film about a group of twenty-something New Yorkers coping with love and coming of age in the big city.

It is truly an enjoyable highlight of the film to watch their interactions as they grow from perfect strangers to close friends.

I love the execution and how several engaging storylines come together so swiftly.

There was so much contrived drama that it would have been better suited to a soap opera or comedy.

Happythankyoumoreplease may be the worst movie I've ever seen.

I watched this stunningly empty piece of vanity celluloid from Josh Radnor, one of the How I Met Your Mother guys.

) it was completely enjoyable.

Most impressive and enjoyable, though, are the performances.

They're tiresome to say the most.

Over all, I really enjoyed it.

They may have good moments, but on the whole feel very contrived.

I cant really knock it too much though because I enjoyed it and really didn't feel it dragged at all.

So in short I was so bored that I didn't even make it through the movie.

The characters are just boring, we've seen their problems already so often.

Radnor's writing is very conscious of cliché, a necessity given the stories--especially the romances--have a natural trajectory toward predictable.

Although we've seen the little-kid-sidekick device before, it's so lightheartedly entertaining here that we really don't care.

All of the characters are actually pretty childish, extremely superficial and depressingly self indulgent.

Not only is she gorgeous, funny and engaging, she's an amazing singer!!

It reveals the writers and director of this movie as a new york bunch who try their best at being creative themselves, but in a superficial, and sort of boring kind of way, more as a being part of a hip trend than as necessity.

Happythankyoumoreplease is a movie that, besides having a really intriguing name, is a real feel good movie.

If I find one or more of the characters boring, I just turn off during their scenes.

In the battle of 'sitcom actors turned cinema auteurs', he takes a slight lead over Zach Braff,though I'm interested in seeing more from both.. Watch this, and ignore all those people who are so jaded, they see a cliché in a person walking down the street to music.

There are also some great quotes throughout the film and it's visually stunning to watch.

There was another couple in the theater that left 10 minutes into the movie.

This is an excellent "slice of life" movie, very easy to relate to and entertaining.

Yes, it got the love story - actually three of them which makes it quite surprising that none of them are rather believable (bald girl falls for ugly guy, because he wants to treat her like a princess, even though she only really seems to care about her not having any hair, the boring couple gets a good talk, even though it's obvious they're only together because they don't know what else to do - and our main person, let's call him Mr. Irritating gets the extremely hot girl, because he...

A movie that looks like a lot, but when watched with your BS-detector switched on, is endlessly empty.

Happythankyoumoreplease sees Josh Radnor behind the camera for his feature film directorial debut, but also in front of the camera as one of many characters on the verge of a 'coming of age' story and going through a significant life change.
