Hey Happy (2001)

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  B

Canada, 2001.  .  Screenplay by Noam Gonick.  Cinematography by .  Produced by Noam Gonick, .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

Attempts to recreate the attitudes of John Waters and the visuals of Michelangelo Antonioni fail miserably in this uninteresting comedy-drama. A wheatfield DJ (?) has set himself a goal to sleep with two thousand men (in honour of the millenium) and at the end finds the perfect mate in UFO-obsessed Happy.  In between there are raves on the prairies, competition from a really gross hairstylist and musical interludes by fishnet-attired transsexuals. Offputting and boring.
