Life Happens Starring Krysten Ritter and Kate Bosworth 

 Title: Life Happens – 2011

Starring: Krysten Ritter and Kate Bosworth 

Genre: Romantic Comedy, chick flick

Where I watched it: In bed on Netflix 


Life Happens. It’s true. When these two best friends Kim and Deena, end up looking in a drawer to find only one condom left, while their dates are waiting in each of their bedrooms, I think to myself, “Gee this looks exactly like a Friends episode!” I let that thought go and continued watching as the story unfolds. 

The next scene is quite predictable. Kim (played by Krysten Ritter) gets pregnant and the father of her baby deserts her. Deena (played by the gorgeous Kate Bosworth) is an emotionally detached bachelorette who dates men, juggles her writing career and babysits for Kim so that she can continue to have a social life. 

So…. Without giving away too much, Kim lies about being a mom to this guy she likes at a party. To make matters worse, she tells the guy that her friend Deena is the mom! Okay the story gets more interesting as their friendship is tested and the unexpected romances occur. 

Life Happens is worth watching. 

I give this one 3 out of 5 Purple Hearts. 


Did I cry? No. Did I laugh? Yes! 😂

Notes: The other actors in the movie are pretty funny. A brief scene with Jason Biggs and one of the main dudes is played by Justin Kirk from Weeds.
