Happy, Texas (1999, USA) C-98m. *** D: Mark Illsley. Starring Jeremy Northam, Steve Zahn, William H. Macy, Ally Walker, Illeana Douglas, M.C. Gainey, Ron Perlman, Mark Illsley. Three convicts manage to escape from prison, and two of them (Zahn, Northam) steal a trailer and wind up in rural community of Happy, Texas, where the owners of the trailer are expected. The criminals are thus mistaken for two homosexual kiddie talent trainers, which forces them to play the roles at least for several days - or so they think. Funny crime comedy has a great cast and a good score, it's well worth watching despite some minor contrivances.
