Life does give us plenty of happiness and satisfactions in different ways. It also has its share of curve balls. Life as We Know It is just the movie to remind us of it!
About “Life as We Know It”:
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 enjoyed the movie and loved how easy it was to watch despite the heavy background story line. Quite frankly after reading the description, it is at face value, a chick flick. This being said, it is a great movie to watch with your girlfriends AND men in your life. It is not sappy. As a matter of fact my neighbor moviegoer was a man who bursted with laughter at every comedic instance. There were many, and very well played out. He also had shiny, glassy eyes when the rest of the girlfriends in the theater were holding to one and other in the tough, mushy and happy parts.
After I saw the movie, all I could think of was what could await the godparents of my little one. They are wonderful people and were chosen because of our strong bonds, special love and lifelong ties. They are also parents, and truth be told raising someone Else's kid must not be an easy feat at all.
The emotions of gratitude ans swelling love towards them for having accepted such a task knowingly just puts the world into a beautiful sunshine filled place for me!
It was a perfect movie with the right turns at the right points that surprised me at instances when it didn't go as I had imagined (except for the ending).
The music was beautiful and I love how Holly is a successful entrepreneur that balances her life without ever becoming the typical arrogant achiever some can become. Wholesome, dreamy, and yes so wonderful to see/have Josh Duhamel all to myself in that enormous screen! The acting is great including that of little Sophie. As a parent you will totally relate and observe many small details and occurrences. I can't stop going back to the way Messer was holding little Sophie in a semi-sitting/ I am carrying a ball like position that actually look very comfortable for baby, but in a way that no parent would ever carry a baby.
As you can infer, Life as We Know It is definitively a feel good movie that delivers laughter, and although hopefully not a reality for those of us with kids who want to see them grow old, a great topic to keep in mind.
Go watch it with your best friend and fortify further your friendship as you share a laugh and enjoy a very good movie.
