OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 89 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:They all enjoyed "Life As We Know It," very much. Based on the type of movie this is, I would assume these are older children.
TEENS:Great reviews from the males and females. All but a few females enjoyed it very much, with a large percentage absolutely loving it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Five of the seven males loved it. The remaining two rated it average, which is a bit low. The females rated it very high with most loving it.
ADULTS:About a third of the males loved it. Another third rated it above average and the rest rated it average. These are very good reviews, but not great. But considering the type of movie this is, I would say these are actually very high reviews from the males. Over half of the females loved "Life As We Know It." Another quarter of them enjoyed it very much. The last quarter only rated it average. So, your probability of enjoying it is very high.
Everyone has a different plan for their perfect life. For Holly Berenson, it's
expanding her small, high-end boutique café into a restaurant, maybe even
someday in multiple locations. For Eric Messer, it's moving up from being a
broadcast technician to a full-fledged director in national sports television.
But life as we plan it is seldom life as we live it. Such is the case when
Holly's and Messer's plans are put on hold by the sudden and tragic death of
their mutual best friends, Alison and Peter Novack. Holly and Messer have always
tolerated, rather than enjoyed, each other's company, but now they find
themselves co-guardians to the Novak's baby girl, Sophie.
