Life As We Know It review

Mismatched couple end up holding the baby

In case you haven’t seen Katherine Heigl play uptight, quirky and terminally single often enough, another chance awaits in Greg Berlanti’s awkward slapstick/melodrama mash-up.

Heigl is caterer Holly, who meets boorish Eric (Josh Duhamel) on a disastrous date set up by friends.

After said friends’ death by plot machination, care of their orphaned young daughter falls to our seemingly mismatched heroes.

Cue wacky (but patchy) Adventures In Parenting hijinks.

While Heigl’s charisma elevates the material, there’s no emotional logic to her and Duhamel’s budding chemistry.
