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.
It's so bad I cannot find words to describe my disgust. Avoid and don't spend your money on this piece of s^%^t!
