He is the love of her life, even though he shot her the year before. The wedding is to take place in the Florida State Prison, where Larry is a prisoner. Soooo romantic.After an altercation at the local Costco, Slim is sent to a mental hospital, in hope that after some treatment, she will be sane enough to stand trial for assault. Being trapped in the nuthouse is terrible timing, because she has so much to do to get ready for her big day. To pass the time, Slim becomes lovers with her cellmate Libby and her most trusted psychiatrist.Unable to find Slim, her parents work the media, to gain attention as grieving parents. But, their 15 minutes are up when Slim comes back into their lives.Slim escapes the mental hospital, only to find out that she no longer has a home. So, she moves into a room over a Chinese restaurant owned by Wing, a master businessman. There she finds her calling, as a Country & Western singer.It’s hard to focus on wedding plans through the haze of booze and drugs, the seedy sex, shootings and car chases. So much to do when you’re working with a Cuban crime gang.Happy as Larry is a fun-filled romp through the modern times of greed, reality TV and social networking. A gender-bending morality tale, about life and death. What ever you do, don’t trust anyone. Particularly those you’re closest to.A satire that cuts to the bone.And a bloody good laugh!
