Synopsis

From the director of Serendipity and based on the acclaimed novel comes this funny, imaginative film with an all-star cast. By all appearances, Hector (Simon Pegg) has it all – a successful psychiatry practice, a comfortable home and a beautiful, loving girlfriend (Rosamund Pike). However, he’s frustrated that he can’t provide his patients with real happiness – or even define it for them. So, he decides to travel the world in search of the elusive emotion. From rural China to Africa and even to Los Angeles, Hector’s trek is as hilarious as it is enlightening in this richly satisfying comedy that also stars Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer and Stellan Skarsgård.

Reviews

James Berardinelli ReelViews | September 26, 2014

While there's limited value in Hector's search for happiness and the dozen-plus "lessons" he learns about the emotional state, the film works nicely as a character piece.

Bill Zwecker Chicago Sun-Times | September 26, 2014

This film is a winner. It will not only entertain you, but also make you think about what it takes to bring happiness into your own life.

Moira MacDonald Seattle Times | September 25, 2014

A sweet-natured film that flounders a bit before reaching its satisfying destination, "Hector and the Search for Happiness" is about precisely what its title indicates.

Bruce Demara Toronto Star | September 25, 2014

It's important that, as we follow Hector's travels and travails, we see him as well-intentioned but flawed. Pegg allows that to come through.
