Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that L!fe Happens is a very uneven indie comedy about a young single mom who's trying to establish a career and meet a decent guy while taking care of her baby. She and her best friends (all roommates) are navigating the Los Angeles singles scene, which leads to plenty of sex talk and a few passionate encounters (expect some loud noises and partially clad characters groping, though no actual nudity). Characters also drink and swear ("f--k," "s--t," etc.) frequently, and they don't always make smart choices when it comes to parenting, friendship, or relationships.
Many sexual references, some quite graphic, and a few sex scenes that, although they involve loud noises and people on top of each other, imply more than they show. One woman prefers anonymous encounters and actively resists men who seek relationships. In an early scene, two roommates scurry around their apartment looking for a condom as their lovers await. Some skimpy attire and discussion of one character's virginity.
A boss verbally berates her employee. Some yelling and bickering.
Frequent swearing, including "f--k," "bitch," "ass," "s--t," "p---y," and much more.
Positive messages about friendship and learning to be responsible are diluted by characters' iffy attitudes and behavior (lying, not being there for friends, etc.). L!fe Happens attempts to be frank about the challenges of parenting, particularly as a single mom -- and it does make it clear that taking care of a baby is tough for anyone (though, if anything, parenting is even harder than it appears here).
