<p>Former Sears model Katherine Heigl must know something that we don't, because when we all thought we were done with her after <em>My Father, The Hero</em>, she was apparently just getting started. Maybe staying under the radar for the better half of a decade is a good career move, because through some miracle, blind spot, or Hollywood loophole this woman is now everywhere (despite having possibly only one decent movie under her belt). Today sees the release her newest film <em>Life as We Know It</em> and boy is it going to be a whopper of a good time!</p><p></p> Heigl plays a successful, ambitious business woman (we love those!) who gets custody of her goddaughter Sophie with an equally successful and ambitious network director (are there really successful people these days?) played by Josh Duhamel. The two never really liked each other, but love Sophie, so they'll spend the next 90 minutes of your life juggling hectic schedules, butting heads, and engaging in general tomfoolery. If you can't see how this will play out you'll probably be the type that enjoys it, so go see it!<p></p>Reviews have been mediocre, with Karina Longworth from <a href="http://www.villagevoice.com/2010-10-06/film/death-s-no-big-deal-in-life-as-we-know-it/">The Village Voice</a> saying: "Set up on a blind date by their married best friends, Holly (Katherine Heigl) and Messer (Josh Duhamel) show each other the worst of themselves ('You look like you read,' he says disparagingly. Trust me, she doesnât) and separate in a huff before making it to dinner. Soon, the best friends die, leaving custody of a baby daughter to the 'incompatible' twosome. Guess how long it takes the barely mourning singles to fall in love?<p></p>"<em>Life</em> offers some vicarious pleasure for the baby-hungry, but it also forces Heiglâand most of the other women in the pictureâto humiliate themselves for the sake of gags that debase without drawing laughs (unless errant poop is your idea of a comic riot . . . ?), while Duhamelâs himbo struts obliviously. The feminine fantasies Berlanti seemingly seeks to stoke are undercut by a vibe thatâs weirdly misogynistic."
