User Review

The best film at Sundance

Rating: 10/10


I'm not a pothead, and I don't watch pothead movies. So a story about a
girl who gets stoned, and then gets even more stoned wouldn't normally
grab me. But film festivals put you in a situation where you watch
movies that wouldn't normally interest you. Usually, that's a disaster,
but in the case of "Smiley Face," I couldn't have been more pleasantly
surprised.

"Smiley Face" gives us one of the most lovable protagonists I've ever
seen in a movie. Jane (Ana Faris) is high the entire movie, even in
flashbacks, and thus is happy and childlike just about every time we
see her (except when she's paranoid). Most movie characters would
breeze through the minor conflicts Jane has to face, but her
pot-induced mental disability turns cooking butter into a nearly
impossible task. And that's part of what makes her so endearing.
