The character is very silly and the movie doesn't give the happy-lesson you expect from the trailer.
Some scenes are funny though.

You can't make everybody loves you, Poppy.

For the first hour with the except of the first ten minutes I got bored but eventually the movie got better. The character of Sallay Hawkins, Poppy, is a bubbly woman that see a lot of happiness in the world where most of the grow up don't understand anymore what makes her looks like an idiot. You get usted to her, to her personality and start loving her. Her relationship with Scott is the best pa... read more

Description: Just how hard is it to be happy? In the effervescent new comedy from writer/director Mike Leigh (“Vera Drake,” “Secrets & Lies”), Sally Hawkins stars as Poppy, an irrepressibly free-spirited school teacher who brings an infectious laugh and an unsinkable sense of optimism to every situation she encounters, offering us a to ...

"Niin ärsyttävä, mutta aluksi ajattelin kuitenkin, että sympaattisella tavalla ihan hassu. Sitten kyllästyin. (Veljeni sanoi minun olevan aivan kuin elokuvan rasittavan ylipirteä päähenkilö. Ihana kohteliaisuus.)"

"Primeira metade do filme chata e sonolenta. Eu literalmente dormi. Tive que assistir a outra metade no dia seguinte. Parecia outro filme, tomou ritmo e as personagens começaram a ficar mais interessantes. A personagem principal é muito "certinha" e tudo dá sempre certo pra ela pra ser real."

"Kuten suurin osa on jo todennutkin, on tämä todellinen feel good-elokuva, vaikka päähenkilöllä on kaikki mahdollisuudet olla vain mahdollisimman ärsyttävä. Tämän ja Another Yearin jälkeen alkaa tuntua siltä, että Mike Leigh on potentiaalisesti ihan pätevä mies."

"No matter how often I watch Happy-Go-Lucky I always have a great feeling while and after watching it. It's a perfect feel good movie. Sally Hawkins did a wonderful job. The scenes with Scott are a little bit sad when it comes to an end but you also need such a sadness in a feel good movie to have a contrast besides the liveliness of Poppy. "

"28.2.2013 I have a hard time seeing as to why this seems such a happy and Amelie-like feelgood case to many. Sure, the main character by Sally Hawkins seems like a happy person, but I really think a lot of it feels fake and something like a surface beneath bigger feelings. I mean, perhaps she is happy, but I don't think that's all there is to it, since she overdoes it to some degree. That is all for good, since it makes the film itself more thoughtful and complex. The films itself focuses mainl"

Movie Diary - February 2013 (17 movies items)

"This was my second watch of Happy-Go-Lucky and it felt as warm-hearted and easy as the first time. It's definitely one of my favourite feel-good movies, the protagonist Poppy is so spiritful and inspirational. I simply love the film, because it can cheer me up and beside of that, it's not simply a stupid comedy. "

"16.02. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Mike Leigh I stopped watching this half-way through, returned to it after two weeks and it felt like a completely different film. I don't know if it took a darker turn during the second half or if I was in the wrong mood two weeks ago but I really preferred the second half. Eddie Marsan is brilliant in his role as the racist, nutty driving instructor. Sally Hawkins is also great as Poppy, the protagonist, albeit the character is often a bit too optimistic an"
