A perpetually stoned actress (Anna Faris) has a series of comic misadventures all over Los Angeles after she eats her roommate's marijuana-laced cupcakes.
" Gregg Araki's latest foray into the slacker underbelly of suburban L.A., Smiley Face, has a wonderful performance by Anna Faris and one of the all-time great stoner monologues in movie history. "
" In Faris, pic has a comedienne with the ability to wring endless variations on a limited theme (the 'I'm-so-baked' one) and she pretty much single-handedly compensates for anything lacking. "
" It's a blast. "
" One shudders to think what Smiley Face might have been with someone like Paris Hilton in the role. But Faris has this character -- a bright, sweet college graduate with a temporarily incapacitated brain -- down perfect. "
" The real reason to invest your time is Anna Faris, America's best-kept comedy secret and long overdue for the kind of major stardom her male counterparts enjoy as a matter of course. "
" A pure, mostly dumb comedy, it's the tale of one impossibly out-of-it girl, Anna Faris' Jane F., who spends her day stumbling from mishap to mishap in an effort to avoid her drug dealer's wrath. "
" Basically a sketch padded out to feature length, the film constantly hovers on the edge between amiable and annoying. "
" An unabashed valentine to Anna Faris, an opportunity for the actress to show that she can carry a movie composed of often hilarious nonstop misadventures. "
" Despite its laid-back script, Smiley Face is as prankishly political as Mr. Araki's Doom Generation... "
" Dylan Haggerty has written an eleventh-hour candidate for the funniest movie of 2007, that Gregg Araki has directed his finest film since 1997's Nowhere, and that Faris, flawless, rocks their inspired idiot odyssey in a virtuoso comedic turn. "
