Life As We Know It Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review


Synopsis: After a disastrous first date for caterer Holly (Katherine Heigl) and network sports director Messer (Josh Duhamel), all they have is common is a dislike for each other and their love for their goddaughter Sophie. But when they suddenly become all Sophie has in this world, Holly and Messer must set their differences aside. Juggling careers and social calendars, they’ll have to find common ground while living under the same roof. Josh Lucas, Christina Hendricks, Hayes MacArthur and Jean Smart co-star in this tart and tender romantic comedy directed by Greg Berlanti (Brothers & Sisters, Everwood).

Review: This is one of those cliche premises that really makes me ill anymore.  Life As We Know It should never make our review lists here at DVD Legion, so why is it here?  Simple...they managed to cast this movie so well that we were tricked into actually enjoying it!  If you watch enough movies you begin to see certain formulas within a genre and this film hits them all.  The unlikely duo are joined together by life circumstances and grow together and love blossoms.  Puke.  This film, however, has managed to be charming, sweet and entertaining.  How?  One, nay, TWO words...Katherine Heigl.  That girl could charm the stripes off a zebra.  She has a wonderfully down to earth screen presence and she manages to light up every film that she takes on.  Her co-star, Josh Duhamel, is no help.  This guy has coasted on his looks for a little too long.  Life As We Know It is a film you can watch with your sweetheart and actually enjoy.  Its all about casting and this one has one of Hollywood's current treasures.

Katherine Heigl: Becoming the Best Mom Ever, Josh Duhamel: The Triplet Tamer and Additional Scenes
