Life As We Know It REVIEW!!
I was recently introduced to gofobo.com, I don't know why I hadn't heard of it before but it is awesome! Here you can be one of the first to see movies before they are released. You may want to check it out ;0)
I was super excited to see there was seats available to go see "Life As We Know It" starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. I was wanting to see this movie so when I got to see it free before it was out, it was a no brainer.
I really enjoyed this movie, I felt as a parent I could REALLY relate. Throughout the movie you will find moment after moment where you can say to yourself, "Been there, done that". Some of these are moments may not been as funny when you were living in them, but they are defiantly funny to watch someone else go through and look back on.
Unlike most of us, the two characters played by Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel were given custody of a child under unique circumstances. Neither really cared for each other and they also weren't married or even dating! Although this will probably really never happen in real life the feelings and insecurities that the characters go through as new parents are all too real. Times you ask yourself, "What was I thinking?, Look at everything I had and threw away...."! I think there are always times in our lives where we ask ourselves these questions, but most of us then realize what a blessing it is to be raising a child. As for the characters and what they learn, you will of course have to watch the movie.
Life As We Know It has a fantastic cast. Not only are Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel great but there are several other great actors and characters in the film. I especially enjoyed the blunt neighbor played by Melissa McCarthy. Her charactor is the over chatty neighbor who sometimes puts her foot in her mouth. You know that neighbor who also loves giving her husband orders and he does it... She is hilarious and does a great job!
The Movie may be a little predictable at times, but that didn't take me away from enjoying the film. Overall this is a very uplifting movie full of life lessons which can motivate us as parents and in our marriage and/or relationships.
Life As We Know It opens in theaters this weekend Oct. 8
