Neil Karassik quote iconHeart, humour, romance… are none of the elements you will encounter in this week’s requisite date movie, which falls as flat as its title.

C. Fuchs quote iconSo formulaic and predictable, and has a hard time juggling the comedy, romance, tragedy and general drama that's been throw into the mix, that it ends up being only a bit more enjoyable than spending time with a cranky baby.

Tomatometer quote iconKatherine 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.
