Overview

One woman's day goes all to pot in this resinous comedy from independent filmmaker Gregg Araki. Jane (Anna Faris) is a college dropout and aspiring actress who suffers from a certain lack of ambition, doubtless reinforced by her fondness for marijuana. One morning, Jane wakes with a busy day ahead of her -- she has a big audition, she has to pay the electric bill on her apartment to prevent the power from being shut off, and she needs to pick up some pot after paying her debt to her dealer -- and decides to take ...

Overview

One woman's day goes all to pot in this resinous comedy from independent filmmaker Gregg Araki. Jane (Anna Faris) is a college dropout and aspiring actress who suffers from a certain lack of ambition, doubtless reinforced by her fondness for marijuana. One morning, Jane wakes with a busy day ahead of her -- she has a big audition, she has to pay the electric bill on her apartment to prevent the power from being shut off, and she needs to pick up some pot after paying her debt to her dealer -- and decides to take the edge off her anxieties by getting a little stoned. Under the influence, the cupcakes her roommate Steve (Danny Masterson) has made for his friends to enjoy at the weekend's Sci-Fi convention look too good to resist, and she gobbles them down. What Jane doesn't realize until it's too late is that the baked goods were laced with some especially strong marijuana, and what starts as a pleasant buzz turns into a world-class high that refuses to go away. As Jane struggles to make her way through the day, fate keeps throwing her into strange and surreal situations involving police officers, Steve's lovesick best friend, and a rare original manuscript of The Communist Manifesto. Smiley Face also stars Adam Brody, John Krasinski, Jane Lynch, Michael Hitchcock, John Cho and Roscoe Lee Browne.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The venerable genre of the stoner comedy gets one of its lamest entries ever in Smiley Face, a would-be Homer's Odyssey of zany mishaps by a pothead even Tommy Chong would look down on. Indie director Gregg Araki has made some interesting (if uneven) films about early-20s dead-enders (The Doom Generation, Nowhere), but Smiley Face falls well short of that minimal standard. Since Anna Faris is a likeable actress, even a single logical decision during the course of the narrative might have taken steps toward winning our affections. Instead, her Jane tramples on anyone who tries to help, and stoops to clichéd "high behavior" that would have seemed exaggerated even when the first stoner comedies were written. (And shouldn't Araki have just committed to hitting us over the head by calling her Mary Jane?) If this were a dramatic cautionary tale about drugs, that would be one thing. But in a loopy comedy, she needs to show some possibility of redemption, else she's just a pitiable train wreck. The peripheral characters also fall flat, notably a stiff John Krasinski (The Office) inexplicably cast as a nerdish dullard -- a far cry from Jim Halpert, the thinking woman's hunk. The only effective secondary performance belongs to Adam Brody as Jane's dealer, who supplies the ounce of weed with which she hopes to replace the pot cupcakes she "mistakenly" scarfed down. But by upending the entire bag -- and 12 sticks of butter -- into a frying pan, then dumping the resulting mess in the sink, she fritters away the first of many golden opportunities to save herself. Not to mention any possibility of leaving the viewer with something to smile about.

    Ode to laughing your butt off!!

    When i first saw the previews for Smiley Face, I thought oh just another kinda funny Anna Faris movie. The first scene i laughed so hard! It's a real kind of humor, most movies under this discription I've noticed are for men, because they have sexy girls and dirty jokes. This is a true honest comedy, that was so halarious to me. I recommened this to anyone who is feeling under the weather. It'll turn your frown to a smiley face ;)!!
