Happens to be likable but, will also upset some viewers
17 October 2012 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Kim (Krysten Ritter) and Deena (Kate Bosworth) are young adult women with big dreams. Deena wants to "make it" as a current trends writer while Kim, loving dogs, wants to open the first canine shopping mall! But, it becomes a sort of girls interrupted. Both ladies are serial daters who have many one-night stands. Alas, one fateful evening, there is only a single condom in the house. Deena gets it, Kim gets knocked up. Now a single parent to son Max, whose Australian surfer father has bolted, she soon realizes that strollers and diapers are a turn off to some men. Luckily, Kim has a good job for an animal rescue fund raiser (Kristen Johnson) and also walks a large army of dogs each week, where she can keep Max on her back. But, babysitting does become complicated when these gals, plus their roommate Laura (Rachel Bilson) have dates on the same nights! Nevertheless, at a fund raising party, Kim meets good-looking Nicolas (Geoff Stults) and arranges to meet him again. They even bring a date for Deena but sparks don't fly for the blonde lady at all. However, flames start coming for Kim and Nic. But, will Max get in the way? And, could it be that Nicolas has some secrets, too? This is a likable film with very likable stars, especially Ritter. What comic timing she has and such a sweet-and-sour nature, too. The California setting is also nice, as are the fab costumes and funny script. But, naturally, the subject of birth control is rather subdued, with a title such as Life Happens. Life shouldn't happen when gals and guys are smart and prepared for intimacy, even if it means saying no at critical moments. Therefore, young teenage girls shouldn't see this film, only those that have turned 18. Even then, some viewers will not be thrilled with the subject matter, as sex is very prevalent and rough language, too. So, do a reality check, film fans. View this one only after careful consideration, despite its humorous storyline.
