Editorial Reviews

Society as we know it may have been lost, but sex and dancing are still in style in this outrageous post-apocalyptic satire. In a not-so-distant future where a variety of environmental disasters have led to the final collapse of Western civilization, sexually ambiguous hipster Ricky G. (Johnny Simone) leads an encampment of rave kids who have created a makeshift city on the outskirts of Winnipeg. One of the community's leading citizens is porn-merchant and disc jockey Sabu (Jeremie Yuen), whose inexhaustible sexual appetite has led him on a mission to seduce 2,000 men before a looming flood destroys the village. Sabu is close enough to hitting the magic number to have chosen the special man he wants to be Mister 2K -- Happy (Craig Sftanas), an attractive if socially inept science buff who is able to communicate with alien life forms. However, Sabu has a rival for Happy's affections -- body-modification advocate and hair stylist Spanky (Clayton Godson), who tries to foil Sabu's plans by abducting Happy. Hey, Happy! was the first dramatic feature from Canadian independent filmmaker Noam Gonick. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, sickening trip-ride. December 25, 2008
Format:DVD
This movie is disgusting. I'm gay, and I love me some gross out flicks, but poor direction and stupid special effects made this movie a superficial piece of poo. Boo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey Happy VHS July 9, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Hey Happy was a very funny, and obscure film. I found it so humorous because even though the characters were so odd, I could relate to them, and I could see my friends as the other characters. I feel other people who watch it, would find the same. However, if you do not like nudity and homosexuality, I don't think this is the movie for you! But if you have an open mind, and a sence of humor, I think you would love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I want the soundtrack! August 20, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I saw it late one night on the sundance channel... It... uhh.. it's.. I liked.. it.... No words can describe it. Cept the words "funny", "extremely", "gay", "sexy", "what the ...?", and "BOOBIES!". Yes. Very much. Like the other people said, 'watch it if you have an open mind' specially in regard to EXTREME HOMOSEXUALITY. Ho yeah. :D

5.0 out of 5 stars stylish, outrageous, beautiful, touching August 14, 2004
Format:DVD
What a wonderful discovery! Noam Gonick has designed a film which is impressive in every way. It is shot in 16mm Cinemascope with expansive shots of the prairies around Winnipeg, and its railroads. The design is striking, and the colors vivid against the bleak post-industrial, pre-apocalyptic locations. The score is varied and descriptive. The story is a wonderfully curious blend of science fiction, sadism, and romance, with glances over the shoulder towards Fellini's 'Satyricon' and Kubrick's '2001'.

Mr. Gonick has put together a cast which could not be improved upon. The title role of Happy, a Parsifal-like innocent who communes with aliens through his short-wave radio, is sweetly played by Craig Aftanas. Clayton Godson, as Spanky the vicious queen, is appropriately outrageous. John Simone as Ricky G, the owner of an outdoor XXX store, is (especially when he laughs) a cross between Paul Lynde and the undertaker in Bruce LaBruce's equally stunning fantasy, Hustler White. But the centerpiece of the film is certainly Jeremie Yuen as Sabu, the stunningly sexy and sensual prairie boy on a personal quest to bed his 2000th man.

When Sabu falls in love with Happy, Spanky (who wants Happy for himself) goes ballistic. Their lopsided triangle is played out against the background of an impending flood and the planning of a final rave, bringing nihilistic and biblical overtones to Mr. Gonick's allegory. Happy is told that, if he gives himself to Sabu, the aliens will take him with them. His romantic encounters with Sabu lend lovely moments of tenderness and affection to the film, plus a bit of serenity in the midst of the surrounding madness.

Mr. Gonick's delightful little gem joins, in my mind, Curtis Wehrfritz's '4 Days' as two of Canada's finest indies. I love Bruce LaBruce, but these very special works cannot be topped for sheer imagination of conception, remarkable design of production and, above all, the beauty of their respective leads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ravers, Gays and Nymphos Unite !! June 15, 2002
Hey Happy ! is that rare type of film that crosses all boundries but in a metaphysical way. It is the journey of a very hot DJ named Sabu (played by Jeremie Yuen) that is on a mission to bed 2000 men. He encounters every type of person in our culture along the way but still completes his mission when he meets Happy. I don't want to spoil the ending but for anyone curious about the outer fringes of the Gay culture this is a must see film ! I was lucky enough to catch it on Bravo and hopefully someday [...] I want this in my permanent DVD collection....

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and funny!!! January 22, 2004
Format:DVD
ok, so i was extremely lucky to have seen this on my canadian satellite, considering the fact that it IS a canadian independant film, and i was speechless as to describe it. it seems like something made under the influence of drugs, but it is a great movie anyways. i won't say anything about it cause you have to see it yourself. but pick it up if you want some good film. and a lot of the screen shots are gorgeous, like when Sabut is in front of the red truck...truly gorgeous (as is Jeremie Yuen aka. Sabu) great movie, great comedy, and someewhat dark. Highly Recomended!!!

It had a plot. The acting was OK for low budget. I just could not relate to any of the characters.
