Critical Response[edit]

Hal Erickson gave the picture a generally favourable review in The New York Times, proclaiming it to be Too expensive for a "quota quickie" but not quite costly enough to qualify as an "A" picture, Happy is a shapeless but generally satisfying vehicle for several of England's top music-hall attractions.[2]
