Life As We Know It
A few years ago, Holly Berenson and Eric Messer we set up on a blind date by mutual friends. The date was a disaster. In-fact, they never made it out of the drive way. Roll forward a few years and their mutual friends have a baby to whom they are both godparents. Holly is thinking about expanding her successful catering business and Eric is looking to hit the big time with the networks as a sports director.
Cue life changing disaster.
The mutual friends are killed in a car crash leaving the goddaughter behind and a will that stipulates that both Holly and Eric must care for the goddaughter whilst living in the family home.
Cue chaos with a comedy and romantic edge.
Sure, you’ve seen this story before. A few of the details have been changed, but it’s the same story and you know just how it’s going to end. Of course knowing the end doesn’t mean you know where the journey is going to take you along the way, and in this kind of film it’s all about the journey.
Life As We Know It is a light and fluffy rom-com that takes a while to get going, and when it does it’s totally geared towards the female demographic. It’s the kind of DVD you buy when you need to make up to your wife/partner/girlfriend, or if your having a girls night in.
