Life As We Know It: An Enjoyable, Romantic Comedy (review)

Hitting movie theaters tomorrow is the film Life As We Know It. I'm sure you've heard of it but just in case you haven't, here's the synopsis.

After a disastrous first date, the only thing Holly, an up and coming caterer, and Eric, a network sports director, 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 Eric are forced to put their differences aside and juggle career ambitions and competing social calendars to find some common ground while living under one roof.

I was able to attend a pre-screening and brought my mom along to make is a great girl's night out. As soon as the movie started, I was laughing so hard. I love the way the audience is introduced to the main characters, Holly (Katherine Heigl) and Eric (Josh Duhamel). It gives a very clear description of who they are and where they come from.

As in most romantic comedies, there are ups and downs. I laughed and cried a few times but that's all part of the fun, right? There were times I thought I could predict what would happen next and found I wasn't quite right but there were other times I knew for sure what would happen next and I still cracked up when it actually happened.

This movie is not just "warm and fuzzy", it made me feel like I was a part of their life rather than being a spectator. I felt like I really knew the characters and I was kind of sad to see the movie end. Not to worry, though. I have plenty of time to catch it in the theaters and I can buy it when it comes out on DVD.

Watch the trailer and then set the date to go and see it for yourself. If you're a fan of romantic comedies, this movie does not disappoint.



I attended a complimentary screening of this movie to facilitate my review and received a gift card from Mom Central as a thank you for my time. The opinion shared is mine and mine alone. Others may not agree.
