Movie Info

Annette (Michelle Morgan) and Elliot (Jorma Taccone) are a mostly happy, moderately neurotic L.A. couple. Maybe Annette doesn't enjoy game nights or taco stands as much as Elliot does, but no relationship is perfect, right? Rather than embracing their differences, Annette can only compare their relationship to their happy couple friends. This cannot be endorsed by Annette's beautiful but romantically troubled best friend, Baker (Dree Hemingway), who is very well-versed on the bleakness of the L.A. dating scene. Taking its cues from classic mid-20th Century comedies with a stylish and contemporary spin, IT HAPPENED IN L.A. is an irreverent tale of life and the search for elusive love in the 21st Century.

Critic Reviews for It Happened in L.A.

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

  • Michelle Morgan's It Happened in L.A. is an ensemble comedy aspiring to wordy Woody Allen sophistication but lacking serious political or satirical bite. And yet, glimmers of promise abound.

  • Once it sheds the immediate air of imitation, L.A. Times vastly improves and even becomes charming.

  • L.A. Times is a writer's showcase, but more as a display of potential than a finished product.

  • Reasonably well constructed as far as it goes, but there's nothing new here and the conceit of Hollywood scenesters as being uniformly vapid and creatively void is frankly rather tired at this point.

    Jan 25, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Morgan writes dialogue at a pace to rival "Gilmore Girls," with a haughty vocabulary that evokes the best of Whit Stillman and laugh-out-loud zingers so frequent I couldn't scribble them down fast enough.

    Jan 23, 2017 | Full Review…
  • The relationship view Morgan appears to be working toward - nobody's perfect, so appreciate what you have - winds up a little pat for the self-inflicted wounds her characters keep trying to emotionally bandage.
