quite clever... I must admit
The film opens by inviting us to ponder a series of questions, these being:
"What is the meaning of life? What is success measured by? What makes people happy? Yes, it's the American dream to own a house, but do we need to own a house? How much money do we need to live and be comfortable? Are the messengers any more or less happy than the person in a McMansion in Potomac?"
Obviously, the answers to these questions are easy, and here they are:
3) Bubble baths, cute ducklings, comfortable pants, stuff like that;
5) Exactly $642,918;
6) They're more happy, because when they get sick of being messengers they just move back in to their parents' McMansions in Potomac.
Done, and done.
