What's So Bad About Feeling Good? (1968)


 George Seaton


 Vincent McHugh (story), Robert Pirosh


 George Peppard, Mary Tyler Moore, Don Stroud
In this comedy, New York City undergoes a dramatic change when a toucan carrying a strange virus is smuggled through customs. In those it infects, the virus causes an intense euphoria and a desire to do good. The first man to receive the infected bird is a misanthropic, cynical artist who lives in an apartment with his girlfriend. The couple names the toucan "Amigo," and soon they are indeed happy. They decide to spread it around and so the bird is freed. The Big Apple goes into an economic tailspin as its residents become deliriously happy and stop buying cigarettes, booze and tranquilizers. To save the financially foundering city, the mayor and a presidential envoy begin distributing unpleasant masks to the happy city-dwellers. The artist and friends thwart the officials' scheme by infecting the masks. So begins a battle between the officials and the artist. Eventually Amigo is caught, and an antidote is delivered. The renowned rudeness, cruelty and selfishness of the native New Yorkers quickly returns, and the city is saved. The artist realizes that his quest has been futile, and he devotes the rest of his time and energy to making his girlfriend happy.

    Funny Just Not A Blockbuster

    I never heard of this movie before. Glad I found it. This was a funny movie when put into perspective of living through the covid pandemic. George Peppard and Mary Tyler Moore were really great. You will really enjoy it but it is not a blockbuster.

    Not contagiously funny

    Posted by nprfan.4life@protonmail.com on Jun 12th 2021

    I heard about this movie on an episode of *This American Life*. Its hilarious. I love it to death. There are a lot of parallels to our modern pandemic; I wish our modern pandemic ended up being like this. I loved it so much that I made five copies and tried handing them out to people :P I could not get a single person interested enough to consider watching it. Perhaps it is not contagiously funny :/ I sent Zeus an email because I wanted to learn more about how this amazing business functions, so I can be better at preserving my own archives; no response.

    This movie and it's story line was featured on a local radio station due to it's relevance about pandemics. It sounded so interesting, I really wanted to see it. SO glad I found the movie on Zeus-the only place I could find it! Really enjoyed the movie too!

    I have been looking for this movie for over 40 years! I ordered the DVD and it arrived within two weeks. It is a very old movie but the copy is ok and the audio just fine, it plays smoothly. I am very pleased to be able to watch this great movie again. Thank you for your service.

    Just too cool

    Hard to find title - very watchable. I have used the theory it put forth, that people and dogs react to how they are treated in my daily business and personal life for years.

    Fun Movie, Important Message

    Posted by Stone Constance Veritas on Sep 19th 2016

    I've been looking for this movie for years. I saw it only once as a child, but it made such an impact on me. I never forgot it. Same goes for my sister. I ended up ordering one for me and one for her. Then I had to make another order, so we could lend it out.
