Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel make a charming couple with plenty of chemistry, but that isn't enough to make up for Life as We Know It's formulaic plot and poorly written script.

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.
Pure Hollywood corn, saccharine and sour by turns.
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.
We keep seeing Heigl's potential as a fine comic actress and, the curse of optimism, continue to be disappointed when she betrays her best instincts.
The title becomes a depressingly self-fulfilling prophecy: This is movie life as we have all come to know it.
Watching Duhamel and Heigl discover the joys and pains of parenthood is cute as far as it goes, but their story can't progress too far until the kid is out of diapers.
... in this case, the characters were so benign I didn't care about either of them. I'm a big crier at movies, and the only thing that elicited any emotion from me was the baby.
But given that the supporting characters aren't bad, what could have been another awful romcom turns into something half decent.
How much you like Life As We Know It greatly depends on your tolerance of Katherine Heigl.
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.
while there is some chemistry between [the leads], it's wasted as the shambolic plot gives them nowhere to go.
Actually this movie offers nothing special, the story flows very flatly with a predictable ending but there's no climax just like any other rom-com.. Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel made a lovely couple in this movie, even though there's nothing special in their performances.. But one thing that made me can't rate this movie bad is I happen to like this movie.. Even though the movie offers nothing new and looks absurd at the beginning, but I just happen to enjoy every minute of it..
I really liked this film. Despite the obvious ending, it was a really heart warming film and a great family film to watch. Katherine Heigl is brilliant as always and Josh Duhamel is absolutely gorgeous and plays his role exceptionally well. A must see! Will make you smile throughout the whole of the film, despite the poignant scenes which are absolutely heart wrenching.
Two unlikely singles are thrown together to look after their goddaughter when their best friends died suddenly. Good cast.
Another movie that proves that two adorable opposites attract :) In this adorable movie Holly Berenson (Katherine Heigl) & Eric Messer (Josh Duhamel) refered to as Messer, start off their relationship with a horrible date set up by their friends Peter and Alison Novak who die in a horrible crash. This leaves it up to Holly & Eric to take care of their daughter, Sophie. What first starts off as a hateful relationship turns into a love of a family that will last a lifetime. I really enjoyed this movie and so will you! :) :) :)
