In the romantic comedy "Life as We Know It," 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. But when they suddenly become all Sophie has in the world, Holly and Messer are forced to put their differences aside. Juggling career ambitions and competing social calendars, they'll have to find some common ground while living under one roof.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
There is not a single deviation from formula.Stephen Holden, New York Times, 10.08.2010
We keep seeing Heigl's potential as a fine comic actress and, the curse of optimism, continue to be disappointed when she betrays her best instincts.Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 11.29.2010
Basically, this is The Taming of the Shrew with an adorable-baby twist that never occurred to William Shakespeare.Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 10.07.2010
Cloying and at times annoying, Life as We Know It is egregiously manipulative, whoring itself out for a few unearned tears.James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 10.08.2010
