Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Acerbic but never cruel."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"The film doesn't seem all that into the subculture it attempts to wryly nostalgize."
‑ Alison Willmore, AV Club
"The movie's dreadful interior lighting might be passed off as atmospheric or a victim of financing, but it mainly makes for difficult viewing."
‑ Daniel M. Gold, New York Times
"The closer Happy Life gets to finally finding any joy in the fans of this passť scene, the more depressing it becomes."
‑ Kalvin Henely, Slant Magazine
"The most spot-on scenes show passive-aggressive hipster clerks snorting at Keith's flyers for a comeback fundraiser rave and a city suffocating on its own cool."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
