Josh Duhamel props up Heigl and makes this wildly uneven comedy her best rom-com since "Knocked Up."

Sure, we know where the story is headed but a few funny scenes and the chemistry between the two leads make this a solid date movie.

Genuinely heartfelt and surprisingly effective in the departments of both laughs and tears, and represents an uptick in the notably declining career of star Katherine Heigl.

Every now and then a movie that promises to be an absolute car wreck, actually isn't.

Despite the film's initial overloading of suburban stereotypes, the easy gags about promiscuity, baby vomit and nappy changing gradually give way to a pretty decent, if strictly formulaic, yarn about commitment and unexpected life changes.

This is the first produced script from the writers and they find more flexibility in this story than I expected. There is space for depth, drama and real life.

Life an unexpected delight.

In yet another twist on the relationship and baby happiness formula, this predictable and formulaic Hollywood rom com chick flick has some fun moments, despite its occasionally cloying storyline based in the plastic never-land of fake reality

Imagine if Josh Brolin and Josh Hartnett joined these two on screen. It would be a virtual Josh-a-thon.

Certainly the story is contrived in places and the tone only just manages to resurface after an early plunge, but if you're willing to go along with it and get involved, you'd have to have a heart of stone not to be at least a little charmed.

The real surprise is how this done-to-death love story hooks you and keeps you riveted until the Hollywood happy-ending melts the whole thing down.

Shallow yet sweetly sentimental, it's a mildly amusing date movie...not exactly fresh yet not completely rotten.

The movie pulls at your heart strings and takes some unexpected detours before arriving at a happy ending. This harmless, inoffensive movie is like junk food that provides a wellspring of comfort and warmth. Newlyweds planning a family will get a...

Only intermittently irritating (especially the opening ten minutes), this star vehicle for Katherine Heigl eventually, with some solid emotional battering, warmed up the cockles of my heart.

I'm a sucker for babies, puppies and hot men. "Life as We Know It" has two out of three, so what more can a girl ask for?

Sweet but not sappy, knowing but not cynical and familiar enough to satisfy but different enough to keep us on our toes.

It's all a bit pat, but it's cute, especially considering the state of the genre.

Predictable romcom explores mature aspects of parenting.

It?s not terrible. Indeed, it?s actually alright. It?s a note of hope that, just maybe, Heigl and Duhamel?s careers won?t be defined by their work of the past 3 or 4 years

"Life As We Know It" is not one of the best rom-coms out there, but it will suffice for a couple hour escape giving you a few laughs along the way.
