      Audience Member Touching. Loved the end scene at the tennis court. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Excellent movie. It was filmed in 11 days. I laughed till I cried. It is wonderful to see strong leading roles for senior actresses. Cloris is 89 years old when the film was made. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter Combining the most clichd tropes of dysfunctional family comedies and wacky road movies, Ryan Jaffe's debut feature manages to squander the talents of several notable actors. Oct 7, 2015 Full Review Robert Abele Los Angeles Times "This Is Happening" operates at such a negligible pace it barely qualifies as a moving picture. Oct 2, 2015 Full Review Tom Long Detroit News "This is Happening" leans too much on ungrounded comic antics for the performers to be completely successful, but they give it their all. Rated: C Sep 25, 2015 Full Review Josh Goller Spectrum Culture A stale script and sluggish pace makes This Is Happening a forgettable occurrence. Rated: 2/5 Jul 20, 2019 Full Review Morgan Rojas Cinemacy If anything, Cloris Leachman is the film's saving grace, and could be reason enough to watch the film. Nov 9, 2018 Full Review Steve Erickson L.A. Weekly The film is entertaining but overly broad, and if it evokes Alex Ross Perry in some respects, it stays far away from his deep misanthropy.
