Village Voice
When Amelia takes the full multimedia plunge in the movie's final moments, Happy becomes something inexplicably (and metaphysically) beautiful. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
It's perhaps most remarkable as a sweet, mysterious portrait of pre-flood New Orleans, which Almereyda not incorrectly portrays as a land of wandering, uncertain souls. Full Review
David Hunter
The Hollywood Reporter
Beautifully acted and filmed, with the Internet imagery rendered in Pixelvision. Full Review

New York Daily News
A few relevant themes do bubble up from this visually intriguing swamp of self-indulgence, but Arquette's pseudo-philosopher seems to speak for Almereyda when he says, "If there was a point, there wouldn't be a story." Full Review
Ken Fox
TV Guide
The soundtrack includes great songs by Andre Williams and Shirley Ellis, and music by local R'n'B legend Ernie K-Doe and electronic organ freakazoid Quintron, who both appear in the film. Full Review
