This is Happening does a fairly good job of telling the story it wants to tell, with some competent actors that manage to sell themselves, despite the cookie cutter characters the script calls for. In general the film's biggest issue is that it adheres far too much to cliches and does exactly what you would expect. The character arcs are easy to see coming, and it rarely does anything outside of the box.

As such, it can be an interesting watch and I didn't feel like I wasted any time while watching it...but it doesn't have enough of a hook to really stay with me for long. It lacks a more powerful punch that will bring audiences back for more.
