Life as We Know It movie review
Life as We Know It is in theatres October 8th.
I recommend you see it.
The movie, rated PG-13, is about two people (Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel) who end up raising an orphaned child after their best friends die.
This movie has several layers which sets it apart from your typical romantic comedy. There is tragedy and humor, and a lot of fun parts in between. It's a great choice for a girls night out or if you are in the mood to be alone, in a theatre with a hundred other people and a large popcorn.
I took my neice Karli with me to see it. We both laughed out loud and did that thing you do in a theatre when you sit real still and try to act like you're not crying at a sweet part.
Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel do a great job and the baby, who I hear is actually triplets working together to get the job done, was precious.
As an adoptive mom, I especially teared up at one point when (spoiler alert) the baby, instead of saying Katherine Heigl's character's name, Holly, called her mom instead.
I attended a complimentary screening of Life as We Know It, directed by Greg Berlanti, and received a gift card from Mom Central to facilitate this review.
