  • "It's good that we had this talk. Before things went too far...you know, got too serious."--Joy Jordan (Jane Adams) to Andy Kornbluth (Jon Lovitz) "Yeah...(long pause]...are you sure?"--Andy "Yes."--Joy "Is it someone else?"--Andy "No, it's just you."--Joy "I bore people. People look at me and get bored. People listen to me and they zone out. Bored. 'Who is that boring person,' they think. 'I have never before met anyone so boring.'"--Allen (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to his therapist Bill Maplewood (Dylan Baker) "I'm just so tired of being admired all the time."--Helen Jordan (Lara Flynn Boyle) to her sister Trish Maplewood (Cynthia Stevenson) "Well, I may 'have it all' [makes quote marks in the air] but, you know, sometimes I wonder what my life might have been like if I'd actually tried to write a novel."--Trish to Helen "I'm sure it would've been good."--Helen "Don't feel guilty."--Diane Freed (Elizabeth Ashley) to Lenny Jordan (Ben Gazzara), after they've kissed "I don't. I don't feel anything."--Lenny "We all have our pluses and minuses..."--Allen to Kristina (Camryn Manheim), after she's confessed to a heinous crime "So was Mrs. Paley sick, honey?"--Trish to her son Billy (Rufus Read) "Well, everyone said she was just too strung out..."--Billy "Now why do people say things like that?"--Trish "Because she's a drug addict."--Billy "I'm not laughing at you...I'm laughing with you."--Helen "But I'm not laughing..."--Joy

  • Critic Reviews
    "...HAPPINESS stretches its taboo subject matter to the limits..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...Unique and unmissable....HAPPINESS is potently funny and painfully affecting, often at the same time..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Tender, shocking, cathartically honest....Solondz leaves us giddy....Breaks through to haunted levels of erotic compulsion that place it close to the hypnotic artistry of BLUE VELVET..." -- Rating: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...A superb black comedy....HAPPINESS leaves viewers feeling disturbed, amazed, and fascinated..."
    Box Office

    "...[A] marvelous, multifaceted, and endlessly unsettling third feature....[Solondz is] an imaginative, witty, and deeply subversive filmmaker..."

    "...Solondz has an impeccable ear for current speech patterns....He also has a gift for skewering self-centeredness..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...Blackly comic, yet touching and sympathetic, it never flinches in its depiction of human darkness..."
    Total Film
