Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Potential peeps out occasionally in Hector and the Search for Happiness, but then flounders and gets lost in a bland sea of sentimentality and cultural myopia.
Rotten: Hector may indeed learn that narcissism stands in the way of happiness, but he also walks away with his privileges intact and unchallenged.
Rotten: "Hector and the Search for Happiness" tries hard, but fails. Miserably.
Fresh: This film is a winner. It will not only entertain you, but also make you think about what it takes to bring happiness into your own life.
A good heart
I can't strongly praise it but I can strongly recommend it. Almost impossible subject for a movie so you have to cut it some slack. Fun moments, visual beauty and a good heart. Give it a chance.
A beautifully captured story of a man who’s in seek of happiness. I would definitely recommend. It’s not grammy worthy, but it’s lovable and adventurous as is. Watch!
Makes you think
I thought this was an incredibly insightful film about what makes makes us happy. Sure, it's not an oscar-winner, but it is a movie about a man searching for that happiness that eludes so many of us. Sometimes you have to travel half way across the world to realize that what truly makes you happy is right back at home! Rent it or buy it! It will bring out all the emotions in you!!
