Movie Review: Life as We Know it

Hello Everyone. I have no work today! It's a good day to just relax and enjoy the little things. I forgot to mention that I am currently doing my internship. I will be working for a car company in the Sales Department. I am to post a draft I've been making regarding starting work, which will be up soon. Anyway, I've recently watched a movie called "Life As We Know It" Starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel

The movie is basically about Holly (Heigl) and Messer (Duhamel) who can't stand each other, taking care of their orphaned godchild Sophie. Holly is an upcoming caterer while Messer is a network sports director. Sophie is the daughter of their best friends who unfortunately had a car accident and died. The parents named them the guardians if they both die. For them to raise Sophie right, the pair must put aside their bickering and find a way to learn all about parenthood. 

I really liked this film even though it was predictable. I was thinking of what would happen next and unfortunately, I was always right. I did love the screen chemistry though and thought that the pair were very cute. I enjoyed watching all of their bickering. I loved Sophie. I thought she was adorable and Greg Berlanti was good at showing just enough of her reactions. 

I've shed a few tears when Holly found out about the accident. I don't know why but I feel for her at that moment. Like I said, even though the movie was predictable I enjoyed it. I thought it was a good laid back movie that would be nice to watch on your day off. 

The movie revolves around the love story of Holly and Messer, but I thought that it was not just about romance. It's also an inspiring story about friendship. It shows how far a true friend would go. Could you just imagine taking care of a child that isn't even yours for how many years. I loved that they loved Sophie. 

Note: I thought the social worker was a tad weird. She redeemed herself in the end though, because even though she became a little crazier, she was actually of help. 

I want to see a sequel. I'd like to see how Sophie grew up and how she sees her new mom and dad. Will she know she was an orphan? Will she call them mom and dad still? Will Holly and Messer get married? What will happen to Messer's work? What will happen to Holly's Business? There are so many questions I'd like to be answered even though I don't think they plan on creating a sequel. If they do plan on creating a sequel I wish they'd create a finer script. I recommend the film to everyone interested in a "comfort movie" and want to relax to something light and a little funny. 

I'd give it a 7 out of 10 


  1. I thought this was a really fun and sweet movie. And Josh Duhamel didn't hurt either :o)

    1. Yes! Oh he definitely didn't hurt. <3
