Early on in the flawed Happythankyoumoreplease, Sam Wexler (Josh Radnor), the center around which the film spins, is informed that the novel he is desperate to get published is "just kind of, well kind of" meh and ironically it is also the most on-point review of the film. "Happythankyoumoreplease" was written and directed by the How I Met Your Mother star, which might explain the lack of real plot and the suspiciously enormous New York City apartments owned by artists with part-time jobs in this indie romantic comedy.

It's Friday, and we've finally shaken off the contact high we got from James Franco at the Oscars. We had to snag some uppers from Anne Hathaway just to get through the week (somehow the footage of her rehearsing the Jessie Spano "I'm so Excited" scene has yet to hit the web). Has everyone recovered from that annual weird-fest? It's like they try and make it more bizarre every year. But it's our tradition, and we have to keep watching. Thank you all for reading the liveblog, and commenting. We woke up to anxiety dreams that after the regular Oscars, there was another, completely different Oscars to liveblog. Not that we don't love it, we just get sleepy is all (wine is advised for extra viewing pleasure). But it's a new week, so let's hop right back on that horse, shall we?!

This was the Audience Award winner at last year's Sundance Film Festival and well, we're still trying to figure out why. Maybe it's the way the trailer is cut but "Happythankyoumoreplease," the writing and directing debut of actor Josh Radnor, seems like an amalgam of every indie movie we've seen in the past decade, with attractive young people figuring things out and finding themselves in this crazy thing called modern life.
