Happy, Texas - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Premiering to widespread acclaim at this year's Sundance Film Festival where Steve Zahn received a Special Jury Prize for Comedic Performance, HAPPY, TEXAS follows two escaped prisoners, Harry Sawyer (JEREMY NORTHAM) and Wayne Wayne Wayne Jr. (STEVE ZAHN) whose only hope to evade the law lies in a most unusual getaway vehicle ... a beat-up Winnebago. Now, to hold onto their freedom theyll have to assume the identity of the R/V's owners: two beauty pageant producers about to set up shop in one very small Texas town ... Happy. Desperate to qualify their town's girls for the Little Miss Squeezed Pageant, something they've failed to do for the past quarter century, the folks of Happy, Texas thought they'd hired pros. But what they're about to get is a couple of cons. Quickly, Wayne and Harry discover that the local bank is ripe for the picking and the town's two most eligible women, schoolteacher Miss Schaefer (ILLEANA DOUGLAS) and the town's banker Josephine McClintock (ALLY WALKER), are hungry for a little excitement. But what initially looked like an easy way to lay low is turning into everything but. With Happy's lone lawman, Sheriff Chappy Dent, played by Academy Award nominee WILLIAM H. MACY snooping around, this unlikely pair is going to have to do things, say things and be things they never dreamed.
