Ridding the World of Cynics, One Cliff Dive at a Time
Happythankyoumoreplease debuted at last year’s Sundance Festival to much acclaim. People there loved it, because of course they did. It’s the perfect Sundance film — it’s indie, but it’s also whimsical and entertaining, so audiences were able to maintain the illusion of pretentiousness while actually enjoying themselves.
Happythankyoumoreplease is written, directed, and stars Josh Radnor, who most of you know as Ted Mosby from “How I Met Your Mother.” Looks like he’s trying to pull a Zach Braff. Unlike Braff, Radnor is probably not a huge douche. So, I hope it does well.
Check out the trailer, and we’ll discuss on the other side.
So, this is what I want to do. Everyone who thought the trailer looked too *twee* for your tastes, stand on one side of the room. Now, everyone that thought the trailer looked fantastic, I want you to stand on the other side of the room. Now, if everyone who hated it could just turn around and face the wall. On the count of three, those of you who loved it, run as fast as you can and push those other people into the break-through wall and watch them fall off a cliff and to their deaths on the other side of that wall.
1 … 2 …. 3.
Cool. We’ve just rid the world of a shitload of cynics. The rest of you: Let’s go get some espresso at that coffee shop inside that used book store and listen to some Sufjan Stevens.
