Life as We Know It

A romantic comedy about a pair of friends left with a baby girl to care for after her parents die in a car accident.

Holly Berenson (Katherine Heigl) is an up-and-coming caterer and Eric Messer (Josh Duhamel) is a promising network sports director. After a disastrous first date, the only thing they have in common is their dislike for each other and their love for their goddaughter, Sophie. When they suddenly become all Sophie has in the world, however, Holly and Messer are forced to put their differences aside.

Predictable

Too predictable. Bad acting both leads. And how did it take several days for them to get around to changing the kids nappy?

Review

Movie is good even though you know what if going to happen the whole way through and how it will end. would recommend as a good movie to just chill out with the girl and not have to think about anything and enjoy the eye candy.

It's a predictable date-night diversion.

It's enough to say that the bland romantic comedy Life as We Know It, in which there is not a single deviation from formula, is well made for its corporate type.

So anyway, what happens in Life As We Know It? You'll never guess in a million years. Never.

Possibly because Heigl is one of the producers, the most beautiful woman in the film -- the stunning Christina Hendricks of "Mad Men" -- dies in an off-screen car crash barely before the opening credits are over.

What you may not expect is quite how satisfying much of the film is, with Duhamel turning out to be a very good sparring partner for Heigl.

Although wholly predictable in its every beat and featuring bland, unremarkable WASPs as romantic leads, "Life" is not without its charms.
