About the Movie
Elliot and Annette are a moderately happy, mostly neurotic L.A. couple. Maybe Annette doesn't enjoy game nights or walking as much as Elliot does, but no relationship is perfect, right? At least, that’s what Elliot thinks. Annette, tempted by the possibility of something better, breaks it off and dives into the L.A. dating scene. Annette's best friend Baker is well versed on the bleakness of dating in their city. Her dating history is mostly dotted with failed fix-ups and pointless, lingering affairs with spectacularly awful ex-boyfriends. Together, Annette and Baker begin to wonder if the perfect relationship is anything more than an elusive urban myth.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Michelle Morgan's It Happened in L.A. is an ensemble comedy aspiring to wordy Woody Allen sophistication but lacking serious political or satirical bite. And yet, glimmers of promise abound.
Rotten: The relationship view Morgan appears to be working toward - nobody's perfect, so appreciate what you have - winds up a little pat for the self-inflicted wounds her characters keep trying to emotionally bandage.
Fresh: Morgan writes dialogue at a pace to rival "Gilmore Girls," with a haughty vocabulary that evokes the best of Whit Stillman and laugh-out-loud zingers so frequent I couldn't scribble them down fast enough.
Fresh: Once it sheds the immediate air of imitation, L.A. Times vastly improves and even becomes charming.
Funny and compelling!
This is one of my favorite movies of the year. All the performances are great, the script is really funny, and it's extremely watchable. Check it out!!!
And pretty bad acting by most of the cast.
Witty and Elegant
If you enjoy thoughtful sophisticated films slash long for the clever rat a tat banter of bygone comedies then you will devour this. Hadn't heard of most of the people in the cast but they were excellent. And it's refreshing to see some new faces. Pure delight.
