  1. Anybody with a soft spot for fakers, who either identifies with them or just admires their chutzpah, is going to get a kick out of Happy, Texas.

    An easy charm, a cleverly unforced sense of humor and a benignity toward all its genially oddball characters. If moviegoers skip this one, they'll be missing a real treat.

    Zahn's dazed and confused, droopy-mustached dude steals every scene he's in...a movie that will make you smile and put a lump in your throat.
  4. So soft-hearted it wouldn't hurt a fly.
  5. It's soft-edged fun that loses direction (or, given the scattershot plot, directions).

    A wonderful premise that delivers solid laughs and has a heart as big as the state in which this farce unfolds.

    Screwball mistaken-identity crapfest...it's just utterly plain, a confection so bland you don't even care that it doesn't really make any sense at the end.
