Josh Radnor (CBS' Emmy-nominated How I Met Your Mother) wrote, directed and stars in happythankyoumoreplease, a sharp comedy centered on a group of 20-something New Yorkers struggling to figure out themselves, their lives and their loves. On his way to a meeting with a publisher, aspiring novelist Sam Wexler (Radnor) finds Rasheen, a young boy separated from his family on the subway. When the quiet Rasheen refuses to be left alone with social services, Sam learns the boy has already been placed in six previous foster homes and impulsively agrees to let the boy stay with him for a couple… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sam and Rasheen's icky pas de deux is coarsely shoehorned into a movie that juggles three tepid romantic mini-dramas."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A case of when bad scripts happen to good actors. Given its similarities to a bygone sitcom, one might call it Friends without benefits."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Happythankyoumoreplease is a charming and refreshing romantic comedy. Radnor is great in the role and provides an uplifting and enjoyable film."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"full review at Movies for the Masses"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"resembles a sitcom -- but the good kind, or at least one you might not flip past immediately on a Monday night"
‑ Jesse Hassenger, Filmcritic.com
"It's sluggish and trite and irrelevant in a way that suggests that the TV soundstage is a kind of hothouse that Radnor doesn't leave often enough."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"There is a sweetness to Radnor's character and to his film. What there is not is a sense of urgency, of a desire to find out what happens next."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"Let's hope "The New Zach Braff" learns from the original Zach Braff to strike while the iron is hot and not dither away his potential waiting for that perfect "next project" to come along."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Radnor's characters never shut up, which here at least is a very good thing. I'd love to see a Comfortablywiseryourewelcomesurprisinglycontent sometime in his future."
‑ Brandon Fibbs, BrandonFibbs.com
"Familiarity is the problem with Josh Radnor's strangely titled writing/directing debut."
‑ Stephen Schaefer, Boston Herald
"[A] perky, if undistinguished, emulation of a mid-period Woody Allen relationship comedy..."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"It's an observant and heartfelt film, with turns of dialogue that show that writer-director Josh Radnor really can write."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"...a striking, promising debut that hopefully bodes well for Radnor's future endeavors..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"...all but bursting with vague longings and inchoate emotions and all the unspeakable, unsoundable stuff that fills up hearts"
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"The territory has been well mined, most famously in Reality Bites and Garden State."
‑ Jane Stevenson, Jam! Movies
