“Life As We Know It” stars Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. The story begins when Holly (Heigl) and Eric (Duhamel) set up a first date. They quickly realize they hate each other and see nothing in common. The only thing they share is godparenthood of Sophie.
After their friend’s death, they are all Sophie has left. They must make the relationship work as they begin raising a toddler and fall in love.
This was a sweet movie, but while I was watching, it reminded me of Kate Hudson’s movie “Raising Helen.” Almost the same story line.
There was really nothing unique about this movie. I have seen it a many times on the Hallmark channel or elsewhere.
Heigl and Duhamel are great actors, but this movie sang one note to me, and it wasn’t a positive one. It was predictable and forgetable.
I was also surprised the characters had no substance and nothing really exciting going on. The baby Sophie, played by triplets Alexis, Brynn and Brooke Clagget, had more substance.
Heigl’s character felt a little bit like an ice queen. I was surprised with the character she chose to play. I don’t know if it was her acting or the script, but it was too much. And the poop on her face was a dull attempt for comedy.
This movie was not a winner for me, and I felt the urge to leave and go watch something more exciting. This would be a good girls’ weekend type of movie. I would wait until it comes out to rent or go to a matinee. Save your money on this one.
