Life as we Know it (2010)

Starring: Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel

Holly (Heigl) and Eric (Duhamel) can't stand each other. They are, however both best friends with a married couple. Eric is a bad-boy ladies man, Holly is a prim and proper business woman.  After about the first five minutes of the film, we see a montage of  Holly, Eric, and the couple...and the arriving baby of the married couple. The married couple is killed in a car accident, and in the will, the couple leaves their Suburban Atlanta mansion, and their baby to their two best friends. Happens all the time, right? Hey...what a good theme to bring to a rom-com; Oh, isn't it just so funny that this orphaned child was left with this misfit pair who can't stand each other, but find out later that they have feelings for each other?

I'm not going to spoil it for you on what happens at the end of this film. It's extremely unpredictable, like all romantic comedies are. Not.
