“..when the truth (or believability) isn't being stretched, everything else-character details, sudden new sources of income-is kept vague..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
“..unfortunately, the potential for screwball comedy is wasted because "L!fe Happens" never finds its thematic tone or comedic rhythm..”
by Loren King [Boston Globe]
“..this sets up the film's main sources of tension: the battle between raising a kid and raising hell, between baby time and time with friends..”
by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicle]
3 of 5

“..there are plenty of silly cliches and wasted opportunities..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..some capable actors, however, go a ways toward making those movie cliches, at least in places, pleasant..”
by David DeWitt [New York Times]
“..overall however, the script prompts the actors to overplay their roles so broadly it's practically squirm-worthy..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
2.5 of 4

“..it all sounds dreadful, like the pilot for another brainless comedy series on network TV, but it grows on you..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..if Krysten Ritter didn't already have a TV show, "Life Happens" would offer good material for an adaptation..”
by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times]
2 of 4

“..any hopes of "L!fe" upending the rom-com status quo are dashed..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

PERSECUTED :

“..terrible attempt at a political thriller for the religious right is aimed not at Christians in general but at a certain breed of them..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]

“..as the stars roam those gardens and vistas in their jaunty flapper couture, the story feels shapeless, un-tailored, defiantly off the rack..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
