The New York Times
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
Amy Biancolli
San Francisco Chronicle
Coiro, who directed and co-wrote the film with Ritter, has a firm hold on snappish humor and bookish references, but the whole thing sags under a creaky narrative structure. Full Review
Diego Costa
Slant Magazine
L!fe Happens wants us to believe its message is one of female independence and empowerment. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Director Kat Coiro - who co-wrote with Ritter - spices up the formula just enough to keep us watching, while Bosworth adds versatile edge to the BFF banter. Full Review
Gary Goldstein
Los Angeles Times
Aided by a nimbly voluble script by Kat Coiro and Ritter, it emerges as an amusing kaleidoscope of contemporary urban angst and romantic aspirations. Full Review
