Josh Radnor, better known as “Ted” from sitcom How I Met Your Mother, directs, writes and stars in happythankyoumoreplease, a beautiful dramedy with a pleasant, offbeat soundtrack. Already a winner at Sundance, Radnor shows real promise as a director and even more so as a writer. I loved how his characters are fully relatable but just a little bit twisted. They’re brought to life in great performances by Radnor, Malin Åkerman, Zoe Kazan, Pablo Schreiber, Kate Mara and especially Tony Hale.
I don’t watch How I Met Your Mother and the reviews for this film were kind of mixed. But as you mentioned, he did win the Sundance Film Festival Audience Award and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. I had passed on this, but I’ll check it out now thanks to your nicely written review.
Thanks for commenting, Mark! You should check it out. I’ll be waiting for your review. Hope you like the movie as much as I did. Tony Hale is great in it.
