Critic Reviews of "Happy Go Lucky"Orlando SentinelNovember 13, 2008
Hawkins wears her grin in almost every scene, but she gives us hints that this dizzy 30-year-old is deep, as are the disappointments that might have caused Poppy to don this mask. It's a performance of sustained, childlike wonder and adult wit.Miami HeraldOctober 31, 2008
It's a powerful argument for optimism.Houston ChronicleOctober 31, 2008
I've never used this cliché in a review before, and God forbid I ever use it again, so pay close attention: Happy-Go-Lucky is the feel-good movie of the year.Detroit NewsOctober 31, 2008
Sally Hawkins, in a blinding, Oscar-worthy piece of acting so good you barely see it, plays Poppy, a perpetually upbeat elementary schoolteacher in London.Chicago ReaderOctober 30, 2008
Leigh pushes the story in a more interesting direction, asking whether people find happiness or simply will it on themselves.I.E. WeeklyOctober 28, 2008
The intentions of this oddity are muddled, but the small portraits of ordinary people choosing their path through the daily range of depression and delight are fully alive.Stop SmilingJune 14, 2016
Once we relax enough to be carried along with the overlapping waves of jokes and remarks, the occasional quip pierces through the tornado of words and strikes a funny bone, sometimes before we realize why we are laughing.DCistJune 12, 2010
If you leave the theater feeling uplifted (and unless your heart is made of cold gray concrete, you will), it wasn't due to manipulation, but a result of the film having honestly earned it.CinePassionAugust 26, 2009
Leigh's most visually beautiful picture since Topsy-Turvy, Happy-Go-Lucky is all about the clashing and connecting of such emotional biospheres.7M PicturesApril 18, 2009
While Sally Hawkins turns out an award-worthy performance as Poppy, I quickly became bored with her life and all the turmoil surrounding it.Apollo GuideMarch 23, 2009
Few actors could have pulled off this role successfully, as it requires great energy, charisma and depth to make Poppy credible and so much more than first impressions.
