Hector and the Search for Happiness

Hector (Simon Pegg) is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Rosamund Pike), he feels like a fraud: he hasn't really tasted life, and yet he's offering advice to patients who are just not getting any happier. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness.

REVIEW:
Reminiscent of Walter Mitty.
Watched this one with the hubby and he watched the whole movie with me. That is always a good sign since he is famous for leaving after 20 or 30 minutes. 
A lot of the statements about happiness that were made in the movie made me consider my own life. Everyone searches for what they consider happiness to be. This film showed an adventurous and inspirational way to figure that out. That is also what makes the movie so good though. Not everyone has the luxury of taking off on a self-discovery trip around the world for who-knows-how-long. That sense of freedom, excitement, and adventure is what keeps the viewer entertained since it is so far out of a normal person's reach.
I haven't read the book it is based from, didn't even know there was one till seeing the film. Doubt I will read it now, but I wonder how much alike they are.
Lots of people are going to love this movie. Beware, you will get choked up a few times.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
