Burrito Boyz, Toronto, ON (Adelaide W)

My pal, LeeAnn, gave me a pass for two to see Hector and the Search for Happiness tonight (it opens tomorrow).  My pal, Trish, went with me.

Before the movie, we met at Burrito Boyz (John/Adelaide W) for supper ... it's where we always meet before we see a movie.

After you order your burrito, you tell them what you want on it

Trish is vegan and ordered hers with ground soy and no dairy.

I ordered what I always do ... a chicken burrito.

My small burrito which was huge!
It was delicious!!!!

Hector is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara, he feels like a fraud: he hasn’t really tasted life, and yet he’s offering advice to patients who are just not getting any happier. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny results.

It was a nice movie and makes you think about your life.  Simon Pegg was Hector ... it was a different kind of role for him and I think he handled it well.  During Hector's travels, he keeps tracks of the happiness rules as he comes across them.  A couple of my favourites are:
  • Happiness is being loved for who you are.
  • Happiness is feeling completely alive.

I would recommend this movie.
