It might even live up to that title: When it ends, you wouldn't mind a bit more, please.

HappyThankYouMorePlease has a different vibe than "Garden State" or "HIMYM." It's more like a late-'80s/early-'90s Woody Allen film, after Allen stopped separating his comedy and drama.
The script is intermittently literate and frequently funny, the young cast (headed by Radnor) is highly appealing.
With very little modification, the relationship woes of the six chirpy young New Yorkers in this self-absorbed indie could be reworked into episodes of TV's "How I Met Your Mother."
This is among the better Allen knockoffs of recent years, even if a few of its riffs seem hazardously off-key.
With the exception of Akerman's Annie, the characters are uniformly annoying, their stories insubstantial and the tone one of smug contentment.
"Arrested Development's" Tony Hale nearly overcomes the gently worthless script, playing Annie's dork suitor, and convincingly transforming himself from toad to prince.

Treating their problems like they're the most important crises in the world is what people in their 20s do, but that doesn't mean we have to go along for the ride.
New York Daily News
That other actors - especially Akerman and Tony Hale, wonderful as a tentative couple - fare better suggests Radnor should give directing another shot.
Radnor tries to pin a tail of significance on this donkey, but he seems content with light comedy and mere proficiency. To which we can only reply: Nothankyounomoremilquetoast-please.
