April 12, 2012
Most appealing is Kate Bosworth, whose sharp humor as Deena has a bite that dares you to dismiss her. Even if you might dismiss her film.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 13, 2012
Set in Los Angeles, this unfunny comedy succeeds only in perpetuating the worst stereotypes about that city.
April 17, 2012
It's a sitcom pilot waiting for re-write.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
December 29, 2011
Its smattering of femme-centric gross-out humor [melds] into its scenester single-mother storyline about as gracefully as the odd exclamation point does into its title.
April 12, 2012
L!fe Happens wants us to believe its message is one of female independence and empowerment.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4
April 13, 2012
A girls-night-out comedy that strives to be the next Bridesmaids or Sex and the City -- but that never quite captures the spark of either.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 13, 2012
Coiro ... mixes an off-beat premise and smart, spiky dialogue with the tired old rhythms of a standard romantic comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Something happens here, but it isn't life.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
February 21, 2013
For a movie that hopes to tickle, it actually finds surer footing expressing deep emotions, pinpointing the terror and grief that comes when pleasurably distracting routines are abandoned.
Full Review | Original Score: C
April 13, 2012
A likable concept that deflates into conventionality...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 13, 2012
Mature parenting/dating comedy lacks substance, laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 12, 2012
Co-writers Coiro and Ritter fill in the schematic script with some juicy lines and amusing situations but never lock on to a consistent tone or thematic throughline.
April 12, 2012
Not only offers no insight on relationships but seems completely unfamiliar with normal human behavior.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
April 5, 2012
An unappealing comedy about a friendship between two women that is put in jeopardy when one of them has a child.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
September 20, 2012
in the end it still feels like it's written by someone who doesn't actually have kids or hasn't come to the realization of sacrifice yet
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 26, 2012
It's more like watching an extended sitcom than a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 10, 2012
A blonde-brunette buddy comedy with a charmless cast (Rachel Bilson plays the third roomie, a Christian virgin) and banter as flat as Deena's favorite no-strings imperative, "Bone and bolt."
April 13, 2012
The ensemble cast tries its best with generic material that offers little insight into contemporary relationships.
April 12, 2012
A case study in how bad movies can turn an ordinary, relatable situation into a grotesque distortion with only a passing resemblance to the way actual human beings live and interact with each other.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
April 12, 2012
A cliche-laden chick flick that seems conceived solely to capitalize on the success of the far more original (and generous to female friendship) "Bridesmaids."
