Blu-ray Review: 'happythankyoumoreplease'
Romance, happiness, and a little Kate Mara? You bet! That’s why we’re taking time to look at the new to Blu-ray release with an unusual title called "happythankyoumoreplease" out June 21 from Anchor Bay Entertainment. Check out the review and extras peek below!
Cast: Josh Radnor, Malin Akerman, Kate Mara
Director: Josh Radnor
Runtime: 98 minutes
Release Company: Anchor Bay Entertainment
The Flick: What saves this one from being yet another ho-hum romantic finding someone special flick is some solid sharp writing and having characters we care about. Writer/Director Josh Radnor is a triple threat here, directing (a decent New York style vibe with good music to boot!), writing (the finding a kid subplot is pretty entertaining!) and also playing the neurotic leading man who falls for the ever-whimsical Kate Mara. (Not hard I’m sure!) It’s specifically their on-screen chemistry where the film is at it’s best, going through both the wonderment and awkwardness of a new relationship from a real perspective. Not so much in the case of the trying-too-hard Malin Akerman playing Radnor’s best friend, but the rest of the characters in the film make up for the distracting bits.
Best Feature: The doc "happythankyoumoremusicplease" featuring Jaymay where we learn about the inspired music for the film.
Best Hidden Gem: The Deleted Scene with Akerman slightly flirting with best bud Radnor – undeniably her best and most grounded work in the film.
Worth the Moola: For a romantic distraction with some sparks and sass it’s worth a date – but lose that incredibly long title!
