Life As We Know It is a romantic comedy that revolves around Holly and Eric aka Messer, who are the best friends of Allison and Peter respectively, and becomes the legal guardian of their daughter, Sophie, when their parents were in a fatal car accident. Holly and Messer share a mutual dislike for each other. After the accident, they start to bond over Sophie and develop feelings for each other.
It’s a typical rom-com and some of the funnier bits (like how Messer shoved Sophie to stall her) are already in the trailers so I guess you just want to see how Holly and Messer work it out. The caseworker is one scene stealer because she can really read between the lines whenever Holly and Messer try to lie their way through while trying to imply that they have a conducive environment for Sophie. Oh, and I liked how Katherine Heigl smacked that brownie out of the caseworker’s hands. Sophie is adorable too, and she’s played by real-life triplets! 3 out of 5 stars.
