Happy Thank You More Please
But things are about to get a heck of a lot more complicated for Sam, when he does the Good Samaritan thing with a small boy he finds on the train. Sam’s indecision with life is immediately transferred into his inability to do the right thing with the boy, and rather than handing him in to the Police, decides that the boy can stay with him.
All the while he’s trying to find his writing mojo, start a relationship with a cute bar girl, and then keep it going, whilst hanging out with his best friend – who also happens to be a girl – who is dealing with her own set of relational issues.
It may sound complicated, but off set by a very indie soundtrack and with some very self absorbed New Yorkers thrown into the mix, Happy Thank You More Please is easy to sit through, though at times maddeningly frustrating and will have you hating it before the end of the film, but then, as if by magic, you’ll realise that you’ve fallen in love with it when the credits roll.
