1 Visitor Review for Hector and the Search for Happiness

  1. Joe says:

    ​Ironically this movie doesn’t deliver on its promise of finding happiness. Previews would suggest it to be an exciting journey to discovering happiness. Unfortunately, there is little to be happy about this movie. The plot points seem contrived, unrealistic, and similar to what you would expect a college frat boy to write concerning finding happiness. Simon Pegg is great, as always, and his character is actually very believable, but that might be at the expense of the movie. With some added quirkiness the movie might have been a bit more interesting. Even Pegg’s inherent charm can’t help some of the cringe worthy moments in this movie, which sometimes feel more afterschool-specialy than profound.
