We went to go see Hector and the Search for Happiness because it stars Simon Pegg. I read the book a few years ago and thought it was a pleasant trifle; somehow the subtle racism of it was less annoying because French. The short version of the story is, middle-aged emotionally retarded white dude travels the world and a number of exotic brown people explain to him that happiness is love and family and stuff.

This sounds terrible but it's not because Simon Pegg. Simon Pegg is fucking AMAZING in this movie and I would like to nominate him to replace Benedict Cumberbatch as The Guy In All the Things.

The cute and charming bits I expected, the dramatic bits not so much. While most of the film is light and fluffy, there are a number of scenes that are intense or just emotionally heartbreaking, and did I mention that Simon Pegg is fucking amazing? Because he's fucking amazing in this, he'll make you laugh and then he'll make you cry and then you end up laughing and crying AT THE SAME TIME because cf. Simon Pegg is fucking amazing and he needs to be in All the Things.
