Consensus: Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel make a charming couple with plenty of chemistry, but that isn't enough to make up for Life as We Know It's formulaic plot and poorly written script.

Richard Corliss

We keep seeing Heigl's potential as a fine comic actress and, the curse of optimism, continue to be disappointed when she betrays her best instincts.

How much you like Life As We Know It greatly depends on your tolerance of Katherine Heigl.

The title becomes a depressingly self-fulfilling prophecy: This is movie life as we have all come to know it.

Yes, there are some twists, a nice comedic turn or two, but the inevitable hook-up of dueling opposites is never anything but inevitable.

Roger Moore
Movie Nation

Josh Duhamel props up Heigl and makes this wildly uneven comedy her best rom-com since "Knocked Up."

Watching Duhamel and Heigl discover the joys and pains of parenthood is cute as far as it goes, but their story can't progress too far until the kid is out of diapers.

As disposable as one of those diapers.

Sure, we know where the story is headed but a few funny scenes and the chemistry between the two leads make this a solid date movie.
