It's Episode 23 and we’re reviewing a documentary! Sam from Conversations with Samantha & chooses Happy, a 2011 feature documentary film directed, written, and co-produced by Roko Belic. Happy -Flixwatcher Podcast - Image 04Happy is an exploration of the definition of happiness - what makes us happy and what happiness means to different people. Looking at real life stories about different perspectives on happiness - the Brazilian surfer living the dream, Danish co-housing community but also touching on the opposite of happiness - Japanese Karōshi (working to death). The documentary is unlikely to make you happier or change your life dramatically - it's not an exercise in self-help. Surprisingly though it reveals that more money doesn’t necessarily equate to more happiness.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='24'] Feeling dated already - remember "Myspace" anyone? Happy is missing a proper international feel and doesn’t really offer anything particularly ground breaking or revelatory but it is a short watch at 1 hour 16 minutes. Scoring 2.6 - the feelings were pretty unanimous across the board. Scoring 2.6 - the feelings were pretty unanimous across the board. What do you guys think? Have you seen Happy? What did you think?

There's no real song in Happy, BUT in spite of this, and the fact that the song does "grate" on you, we have chosen "Happy" by Pharrell Williams...sorry/ not sorry :-)

Hola!

Episode 22 arrives and its Rob’s choice “one of the best 80s comedies”, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, the 1988 comedy classic from Frank Oz starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin.   Michael Caine is the distinguished English gent, who also happens to be a world class con-man, then along comes Steve Martin another con-man but a brash, American much to his annoyance - the fun really begins when they meet the charming Glenne Headly. It's easy to forget how funny Steve Martin was during the late 70s and throughout the 80s - if you’re looking for a reminder then this is a great place to start. A near perfect balance of physical comedy and witty one liners.  

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='23'] Dirty Rotten Scoundrels scored reasonably high at 3.8. The Twitter response was pretty favourable too. Don’t take this film too seriously - it could have starred David Bowie and Mick Jagger (!) enjoy the silliness and the genuinely enjoyable twist ending. What do you guys think? Have you seen Dirty Rotten Scoundrels? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
