“..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]

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

“.."This Is Where I Leave You" leaves them all to their own devices. If they had a reunion free of this overwritten and clunkily directed movie, that would be worth going to..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON :

“..intimate and affectionate..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

FORT BLISS :

“..writer-director Claudia Myers presents us with an unflinching and complex character study of an imperfect woman juggling motherhood..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

THE SCRIBBLER :

“..the script that Dan Schaffer adapted from his graphic novel can't seem to find a credible dimensionality for his story or characters..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

“..even with appearances by such dependable performers as Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Plummer and Jean Reno, the interminable "Hector and the Search for Happiness" will most likely inspire audiences to search for the exit door..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :

“..it does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
