There's more boobs than brains in Adam Sherman's semi-true tale of heedless, bored debaucheryLos Angeles TimesMay 13, 2010
An astoundingly bad memory piece that blows its potential dramatic heft at every turn.New York TimesMay 07, 2010
This strident exposé may gladden the hearts of some anti-'60s conservatives, but it is a shapeless mess steeped in prurience.Time OutMay 05, 2010
Rarely has anything so lurid seemed so downright mundane.New York ObserverMay 05, 2010
O.K., life without structure or purpose leads to disillusionment and angst, but we knew that already. I'll be darned if I know what deeper lesson we're supposed to learn after suffering through 88 minutes of misery.Village VoiceMay 04, 2010
The film builds on a fascinating cautionary tale, but doesn't develop its characters past whatever movie-of-the-week crisis each suffers from.Shared DarknessMay 19, 2010
Happiness Runs wears its air-quote truth like a protective cloak, to fend off dismissals of its narrative inadequacies: after all, if it's based on a true story, how could it not be infused with hidden profundity?Moving Pictures MagazineMay 17, 2010
Sherman's macabre dream-fueled imagery elevates the material from solely navel-gazing, but only slightly.Film Journal InternationalMay 10, 2010
"Callow" would be too kind a description of this messy, unoriginal and dull treatise of a filmmaker's youthful years in a commune.Slant MagazineMay 07, 2010
An unexpectedly subtle coming-of-age film, Happiness Runs is also something of an allegory for Generation X's conservative reaction against the flower-power excesses of their baby boomer progenitors.
