Grey's Anatomy's Katherine Heigl and Transformers' Josh Duhamel play polar opposites Holly and Eric. After a disastrous first date, the only thing they have in common is their dislike for each other and their love for their goddaughter, Sophie. But when they suddenly become all Sophie has in the world, they are forced to put their differences aside. Juggling career ambitions and competing social calendars, they'll have to find some common ground while living under one roof -- and deal with life as we know it. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Brothers and Sisters, Dawson's Creek), this romantic drama also features Mad Men's Christina Hendricks and more.

Critics 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.

Predictable romcom explores mature aspects of parenting.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although this Katherine Heigl/Josh Duhamel romantic dramedy features a baby, it deals with mature themes related to relationships and parenting that will go over kids' head. Although there's no graphic depiction of sex, there are lots of references to sexual relationships, and Duhamel's character has one-night stands and casually makes out with several different women. Another scene includes heavy kissing and then shows two bodies in bed. Grown-ups drink at dinners, parties, and holidays, and in one scene Heigl's character is shown finishing off a bottle of wine. Marijuana is shown twice and eventually baked in brownies. Language includes "a--hole," "s--t," and "bitch," and there are a surprising number of product placements (particularly household goods and cars), though they're just shown rather than mentioned. On the bright side, teens may learn a valuable lesson about the meaning of family.
