Sam (Josh Radnor) has a fear of commitment and is content with his bachelor lifestyle, until he meets Rasheen (Michael Algieri), a young boy Sam cares for after he is separated from his foster family on the subway. But Sam isn’t the only one with relationship issues, his best friend Annie (Malin Akerman) who has an auto-immune disorder tends to pick the wrong kind of guy; Mississippi (Kate Mara), an aspiring singer, is trying not to date the bad boy but gets sucked into Sam’s world; and his cousin Mary-Catherine (Zoe Kazan) and her live-in boyfriend Charlie (Pablo Schreiber) are fighting about whether to move to Los Angeles or stay in New York.

Recommendation: B
It’s a difficult task for a novice to write, direct and act, but Josh Radnor pulls it off and we can expect to see his work only get better. HappyThankYouMorePlease is a fine balance of comedy and drama, that is neither too over the top nor too heavy, allowing viewers to just enjoy a good film.

HappyThankYouMorePlease opens in select theaters on Friday, March 4, 2011.
