Life As We Know It

Rated PG-13 112 min. 2010

Another twist on the "unexpected baby leads to romance and happiness" formula, this rom-com is merely a remake of last year's The Ugly Truth. with the addition of a sweetly cooing, blue-eyed baby. An awkward date foreshadows troubles between the two protagonists who were unhappily set up by their happily married best friends. Messer (Josh Duhamel), a sports broadcaster, is a womanizer while Holly (Katherine Heigl), a pastry chef, is an uptight homebody. The saga continues when their couple friends are taken out by a car crash and Holly and Messer are given joint guardianship over their friends' baby, Sophie. Poop jokes follow, and major points are lost for the tired trajectory of Hiegl and Duhamel's stock roles.
