Dark comedy drama. Also a gross out and sex comedy but instead of cheap physical jokes (ok one at the end) and loud characters it has a quiet vulnerability and painful tender moments. This quiet and dramatic acting along with dialogue that's directly painful but worded simplistically and sometimes silly gives a funny effect. Obviously the subject matter isn't funny itself but the delivery is. When the jokes over it's instantly back to thinking of what happened and how screwed up these people are. It's a gripping cycle. I like the effort this movie makes to be different in its comedy style yet didn't go they way of sacrificing realism. The themes are pretty taboo. It definitely goes into bizarre territory.

I didn’t particularly enjoy the film I guess. The cast did a well with their performances but the subject matter, characters, and resolution just wasn’t there for me.

From a period in time that bought you Seinfeld, Breakfast Club, and Philip Seymour Hoffman Happiness strings out some vignettes into almost 2 and a half hours in a way that didn't work for me

Where do you begin with a movie like Happiness? For starters, I would not recommend watching this on a plane. The performances were mostly fantastic, but there were two scenes in the first hour that made me switch to something more suitable for the environment.

Happiness is called a black comedy. More

Simply too hard to watch due to the subject matter.

But... it is clearly an excellent film, I just can't recommend anyone watch it. Enter at your own risk.
