I am usually very judgmental about movies, and I loved it. (by itsknotfair)
It was a gem.Don't let the naysayers steer you away. I haven't truly enjoyed a movie like this in a while. Give it a chance and make up your own mind. The worst that could happen is you turn it off after a few minutes.The characters were smart, and even though it is a little predictable, it was smartly written. Great performances by Krysten Ritter and Kate Bosworth. I also enjoyed the strange character of Henri, and Rachel Bilson was both as ditsy and charming as you would expect.To be honest, I didn't find a single thing about it to be unlikable. I would recommend it to anyone <more>
who enjoys a good laugh and unique characters that will leave an impression. 10/10
Sometimes you need a movie that just winds around pretty clothes, successful dreams and friends who sometimes let you down by mistake.But this is no 'Clueless. The script actually presumes you may understand Shakespeare jokes and have reached a certain age when you step up and make a success of yourself. The fun female leads don't do clappy hands and girly shrieks when they talk about guys.Krysten Ritter and Kate Bosworth bring thoughtful performances with a well balanced and light comedic touch. The movie harks back into the delightful froth of the forties where a comedy of errors <more>
always leads couples astray.Share a comfortable laugh at grown-up share housing, accidental baby dating woes and absolutely no Mall visits.
Krysten Ritter further shines in this true gem (by Robert_duder)
Life Happens was a last minute choice on Netflix after my wife I desperately looked for something to watch. I wasn't much looking forward to it even though I enjoy the three women in the lead. Well I eat my hesitation because Life Happens was wonderful. It's a dark comedy, some great chemistry in the cast and some definitive emotional moments. The film isn't without its faults. It definitely is low budget and some of the writing is a little rushed and they could have developed some of the supporting characters more and I even think the drama/comedy balance is just a tad off at <more>
times. I guess when I think Krysten Ritter I mostly think of comedy but that isn't to say she doesn't absolutely nail this dramatic role. I guess the only negative I have to say about the film is that I felt there could be more to it and that isn't much negative at all. It is a fantastic film and very well made in the indie world.Krysten Ritter's star is starting to shine bright. She's been in the Hollywood spotlight for awhile but Jessica Jones really catapulted her. For me it was Breaking Bad following by the deliciously satirical Don't Trust the B$%#^ But in this film she co-write with the director and just really sinks her teeth into this role. She definitely leads every scene and really makes you care about her character more than the others. Kate Bosworth to me seemed like an odd choice as Ritter's counterpart but they actually have really good chemistry. Bosworth is really good as the best friend who never had to grow up much thanks to not having gotten pregnant. Both of them have good story arcs and while I would have liked to have seen a little more development to her character, she does very well. Rachel Bilson gets the short end of the stick. I felt like she could have been more and done more especially in the laughs area. I didn't even realize she was supposed to "virginal" which would have made a lot of the jokes money funny early on. She also didn't get a lot of time with the other girls so she gets left out a lot. Geoff Stults does a good job as Ritter's love interest. I always find him a little cheesy but he works for this and actually gives a decent performance with little development. Jason Biggs also makes a small and almost lack luster performance as well. Justin Kirk was actually really good in a comedic, ridiculous way and I loved his story with Bosworth.This is such a great "chick flick" I think directed by Kat Coiro whose other film A Case Of You was a decent indie movie as well. This isn't your typical rom-com and actually has some real meat behind it and some really good morals and things to learn and I think especially young parents can enjoy the concept behind it. It has enough laughs to keep it light and enough drama to make you remember it afterwards. Its one of those films that no one saw when it got made 2011 in this case and it won't be topping any charts but it's still worth seeing!! 8/10
We are making our way through the gauntlet. We have gone from funny pregnant teenager to funny new born mom. Kim Krysten Ritter and Deena Kate Bosworth are liberated college women. The next thing we know Kim has a son Max. The pair share a house with Laura Rachel Bilson who is proud of her virginity, but accepts jobs that pay well which make you question it. She was a great character for what little time she was on the screen.Marc Rhys Coiro the father of the child is also a surfer which allows him to leave the picture. The film works on the theme that having a baby is a "buzz <more>
kill." It is worse than the plague. In an early scene they drove the point home so much, it managed to bring the film down to where I didn't think it could recover to be a comedy again. Kristen Johnston plays Kim's flaky boss who is far from understanding.When Kim meets Nicholas Geoff Stults they have an attraction for each other. Kim lies to Nicholas about the baby, claiming it is Deena's, which later resulted in a funny barbed filled double date, the comedy highlight of the film. The plot is predictable and I don't think it would have worked any other way.Krysten Ritter looked exceedingly pale in this film, as a new born mom, i.e. a mom that just dropped the kid an hour ago. She kept that look for much of the film, perhaps to drive home the point. Justin Kirk plays an educated perv friend of Nicholas. He had a funny character that should have been used more. The film has some laughs and is a worth while date night rental.Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex? no nudity.
