Life As We Know It

Terrance the Trailer Trasher – @

This should be fine for anyone who “awwwwwed” at “Three Men and a Baby” and managed not to gag at “Jersey Girl.” I’m clearly not that audience. I don’t have kids for a reason. The best thing I can say about movies like this is they remind me of that reason. This trailer tweaks the formula a little by including a bizarrely dark death scene in the setup to force our rom-com couple into a premise that I doubt has any legality in real life. The trailer also gives away that there’s going to be baby pooh jokes, contemporary pop-culture references (Taylors Swift & Lautner, “Slumdog Millionaire”) and [SPOILER ALERT] that cute little baby will end up making Heigl and Duhamel fall in love, as if we wouldn’t have guessed that anyway.

The reason you don’t have kids is because you can’t get laid. I can just imagine what a date with Terry must be like. Where would you take her to eat after seeing “I Spit On Your Grave”? I must say I truly laughed out loud at this trailer, especially the scene where Duhamel pushes the baby to the floor just as she’s about to take her first steps. This won’t make anybody’s ten-best list, but it does look cheerful and entertaining.

Terrance’s Rebuttal:

“Grave” happens to be a female empowerment movie that’s been embraced by the feminist movement. After you take your date to “Life As We Know It,” I’m sure you’ll be stopping by the drug store to buy yourself a box of tampons because you’re clearly a chick if you like this drivel.

“Life As We Know It” takes its first steps into theatres this Friday.

Tomorrow we’ll find Ben Affleck on the unemployment line in the trailer for “The Company Men.”
