How to be happy
Awful movie about a counsellor who has affairs with his clients' wives. This rubbish needed three directors and it shows. Most of the cast are the same age, too normal, blandly middle-class, appear clean, and the entire story makes little sense. Similar in tone to Situations vacant, where anything of interest e.g. the sex scenes occurs off-screen. Lots of bland guitar music on the soundtrack and of course, the usual establishing shots every few minutes. Easily one of the worst Irish movies in years, this is just laughable. So is Carrie Crowley, what an annoying woman. Even better, some cast from the equally bad Dick Dickman PI also appear. Let me guess: Filmbase only selects the blandest, most-unimaginative people do their Masters course?
