If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.

I bought this film unsure and skeptical of the enjoyment I would have while watching it. Moments into the movie, however, I discovered these feelings were completely unwarranted.This dramatic-comedy of sorts was an impeccable combination of happiness, sadness, guilt, insecurity, and self-discovery. I found myself clenching my side in pain from laughter, drying my tear-filled eyes, and cringing from embarrassment. It is true that this movie is painfully unrealistic in many defining scenes, but that is the beauty of drama and/or comedy. I did not order a documentary -- I ordered a film whose main purpose was to elicit both forgotten and familiar emotions from within me -- and that it did, without doubt. So, in short, I am very pleased with Life as We Know It, and I recommend it to anyone reading this review.

I really should not like this movie as much as I do, but I can't help it. From every single angle this is just another solid, formula rom-com. I usually put such movies about 5-6 stars if they are good, but for some odd reason this one really, really worked for me so an 8 it is! If you like rom-coms, this is your move; if you do not, you would probably not love it – but to me at least it had something extra that hit all those bulls-eyes in my heart despite what my head was telling me. The acting is good and they sell this slightly odd set up and development impressively well. You know the drill: warm, funny, emotional and a cosy ending. What more can you demand from a rom-com?

At first I watch this movie for Josh Duhamel, but after watching it I realized that it is not only the actors or actresses make the movie great, but also the story line, the lovely relationship and, and everything in this movie. Being in a relationship is hard, but relationship like Holly and Messer is even harder. They did not like each other at first, actually they kind of loathed each other. But as time went by, for Soph's sake, there was something joyful but not explainable generated. It is love, but it is also more than love. It is not just the sort of "I love you and you love me" thing, it is about the whole family, it is the kind of love full of responsibility. I'd like to call Sophie a Cupid, because she is exactly the one who brings Holly and Messer together. Amy is right, these guys just make a cute couple. Lovers are supposed to be like this, I mean solving problems together with some lovely fights that can only bring the lovers even tighter. Life is not always delighting, sometimes we need the right person to help us cope with all the problems, because that's all what love is about.

There was surprisingly little of the baby in the movie. In fact I think almost every scene with the baby was in the trailer, certainly least all the funny ones. The rest of the movie is a standard "hate each other at the beginning" romantic comedy, the kind Ms. Heigl always seems to end up in. Do I need a spoiler tag to say, you can guess where it's going to end up?There were definitely funny moments that weren't all in the trailer, so overall, it was a fun movie to watch. My wife was crying at the end so it succeeded on that front. The "neighbor" characters were a little grating, but the social worker character was my favorite. Overall, a decent enough 90 minutes of my life.
