Smiley Face

Movie name: Smiley Face
Year of release: 2007
Director: Gregg Araki
Stars: Anna Faris, Adam Brody, John Krasinski, Danny Masterson, Jane Lynch, Marion Ross, John Cho, Danny Trejo
Genre: Drama
Score out of ten (whole numbers only): 6

Following "Mysterious Skin" Gregg Araki goes to nonsense and delivers a quirky comedy that boasts one of the funniest performances of Anna Faris. Faris is a gifted comedian that thus far hasn't had the chance to really find material worth her natural comedic talents - until "Smiley Face" that is. Anna Faris plays Jane F. an actress (majored in Economics) that is constantly stoned, something that gets increasingly worse when she accidently eats her roommate's dipped muffins. The film basically follows Jane's attempts to go through her day totally high out of her wits. An interesting comedy definitely worth checking out.
