Happy, Texas

  • When can we do the squeeze tests?

Two escaped convicts arrive in the town of Happy, Texas, where they are mistaken for a gay couple who are to host the town's Little Miss Fresh Squeezed beauty pageant. Enjoying the celebrity and using their skill as con-men, the two adopt those personas to take on the task. Of course, as the two are heterosexual, their interest in the involved ladies intensifies...

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Somewhat over-the-top comedy in which the two cons realise that there is more to life than crime, thanks to two good women. The gays in the preview audience seemed to enjoy it, even though it parodied some aspects of gay life.

Shaun Myburg (21): A funny, touching story that doesn't try to be more than it is, however I see this as something that perhaps should have been sent straight (excuse the pun) to video as there is no way it will draw a big box-office, solid performance by Jeremy Northam and radiant performances by Illeana Douglas and the always entertaining William H.Macy.

Guinevere Vos: A tried and obvious theme with a few good laughs. Zahn and Macy are two of the best actors Hollywood has to offer- watch the film just to see them do their thing!

Andrew Simpson (17): This film had poor acting from Jeremy Northam, Steve Zahn and Ally Walker. William H. Macy was entertaining in his strange role but why he made this film, I'll never know. It is a comedy which is not funny and it is to stupid to be called a drama.
