Life As We Know It Movie Reviews
User reviews on Life As We Know It
Very good movie - Laughter, tears, the whole nine yards. I would definately see it again!
This movie was fun. I laughed, and even experienced some pre-tearing (the eyes heat up, it feels like there might be liquid... but nothing pools on the lower lid.)
I had some really good laughs, and it was a fun movie outing, the kind of feeling I go to the movies for is the one I left with.
The only thing that really stands out in the movie is Messer's attitude toward adultery. That's right: adultery. Messer is a man whore. He visits the grocery store to pick up on ladies. As in some other films, the audience even gets a lesson in how to "hook up", how to lay down a smooth flirtatious line to engage a woman- for a one night stand, of course.
All the great fun and laughter, and the lessons on life and friendship, would have not been affected at all if the Messer character had not been an unrepentant sex a holic.
The other main characters, Holly, and Doctor somebody or other, also engaged in an intimate physical relationship, which we see when he is at her home early in the morning.
Hollywood, we don't need that gutter standard. Keep giving us adventure, laughter & excitement. Leave the perversion for the Hell bound.
You know the story: Guy and girl hate each other. Guy and girl are thrown together by an unusual set of circ**stances. Guy and girl are forced to get along until, wouldn't you know it, they actually do get along, eventually fall in love, blah blah blah. Life As We Know It is another in a long line of "romantic comedies" that pretty much follow the template of other movies that came before it and add nothing to the genre or your life.
I've pretty much just laid out the plot, but hey, I at least want to give you all the information so I feel I've warned you enough. Katherine Heigl (very much in jeopardy of becoming Jennifer Aniston) and Josh Duhamel play Holly, a control freak, and Messer, a chronic bachelor. Their friends set them up on a date, and of course, it goes horribly. Then the friends die in a car accident. Their will states that Holly and Messer raise their 1 year old daughter together. Nothing like a horrible car accident to set up opposites attracting and madcap hilarity!
This is a si. coepisode, as most of these stupid films are. I don't understand why anyone would spend their money on this garbage when they could watch the same thing for free at home. At least add something new to the genre. Instead, we get a lot of the same thing we've seen. And is it just me, or does Katherine Heigl radiate completely contempt for humanity in every role she takes or what?
