Josh Radnor (TV’s 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. Sam Wexler (Radnor) is an aspiring novelist whose life changes when he meets Rasheen, a young boy separated from his family, on the NYC subway. When Sam learns Rasheen has already lived in six previous foster homes he agrees to let him move in temporarily. As a friendship develops between the two, Rasheen meets Sam’s circle of friends: Annie (Malin Akerman of COUPLE’S RETREAT), who has an auto-immune disorder resulting in the loss of her hair and her self-esteem; Mary Catherine (Zoe Kazan of IT’S COMPLICATED) and Charlie (Pablo Schreiber of VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA), a couple whose potential move to L.A. threatens their relationship; and Mississippi (Kate Mara of 127 HOURS), an aspiring singer/waitress who tests Sam’s fear of commitment. In return, he helps Sam realize adulthood may not be about waiting for the right answers, but about stumbling ahead and figuring them out."

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Sam and Rasheen's icky pas de deux is coarsely shoehorned into a movie that juggles three tepid romantic mini-dramas.
Rotten: With very little modification, the relationship woes of the six chirpy young New Yorkers in this (happythankyoumoreplease) self-absorbed indie could be reworked into episodes of TV's How I Met Your Mother.
Fresh: This clearly is an actors' movie, and they all blossom in that environment.
Fresh: Radnor offers an entertaining and not especially self-indulgent ensemble comedy about young love in the big city that spotlights an appealing cast of youthful fringe-of-Hollywood talent.
Have patience and relax into the ride this movie takes you on. The ensemble acting level is phenomenal. There are unbelievable parts of the story, but roll with them. And get happy. Don't listen to Rotten Tomatoes. This is a lovely, mellow journey with a happy ending and I think most people think it's a comedy so it has to have a joke a minute to rate high. Just relax and go with it.
Worth A Sequel
This movie takes you on an inside look of 4 very interesting people. It brings you into their lives and permits you to put yourself in their place. If you like a movie that keeps you wondering what path people will take then this is a great movie for you. Yes this type of movie has been seen before but I think this is a fresh look, that at the end makes you want more. This would be a great movie for a sequel, showing us where their lives go 5 or 10 years down the road. It could be called Happy Thank You More Please 5 years Past. So sit back and enjoy this surprisingly good indie.
An adorable movie
This movie is a quick moving, fun, and lovable story that can be a bit off. It seems to be an indie comedy/romance that can at times be too absorbed into petty problems. Yet in consideration a modest film.
