L!fe Happens Reviews

April 26, 2012
It's more like watching an extended sitcom than a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 13, 2012
Cliched premise rescued by some sharp one-liners and an endearing cast.

Set in Los Angeles, this unfunny comedy succeeds only in perpetuating the worst stereotypes about that city.

A likable concept that deflates into conventionality...

April 13, 2012
Coiro ... mixes an off-beat premise and smart, spiky dialogue with the tired old rhythms of a standard romantic comedy.

April 12, 2012
First-time feature director Kat Coiro gives an oft-tread story a snappy new spin in the hip and enjoyable comedy "Life Happens."
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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.

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
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."

[Bosworth] brings some intriguing shadows to a movie that looks, upon first glance, to be a two-dimensional, post-"Sex and the City" romantic comedy.

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.

Something happens here, but it isn't life.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 10, 2012
It all sounds dreadful, like the pilot for another brainless comedy series on network TV, but it grows on you.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
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."
March 29, 2012
A mildly amusing indie that's neither as funny nor as poignant as it wants to be.

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.
