    riding high

    Basically it means to be very successful. I was wondering if it sounds OK to say the following.

    "The movie's been riding high since its premiere in June."

    How about saying that someone's been very happy and excited lately?

    "Since she's going to get married to her fiance, she's riding high." OK?
