This film is about two people who got set up by their friends, but the date dis not go well at all. Their friend died unexpectedly, and they have to care for their friend's child.
"Life as We Know It" is fun to watch. It's a formulaic romantic comedy in the sense that you know what will happen in the end, but still it is not so formulaic as it has there are lots of elements which are not usually in romantic comedies. It is not usual for romantic comedies to incorporate the frustration of child care, for example. The two leads are charming, believable and goes well together. The social worker is very funny too, but if she really acted like that in real life, she would not have been so professional!
