Cast: Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, Josh Lucas, Hayes MacArthur, Christina Hendricks

Summary: Two single adults become caregivers to an orphaned girl when their mutual best friends die in an accident.

Genre: Romance, Drama, Comedy

I thought this film was okay. It's a typical rom-com (which we all know I don't like) but I thought it was enjoyable at times. I think the baby for me was the main reason I liked this film, she was just too cute.

I was reading Empire magazine (I think it was Empire) the other day where they've given a short DVD review that says, For all it’s lack of originality, the film had just enough cuteness to sustain interest, but cannot be forgiven for ending with an airport sprint.’
I totally agree with this. I definitely think I would have liked the film better had it maybe drifted a little from the conventional rom-com storyline, and maybe had Katherine Heigl's character end up with Josh Lucas' character.

My Rating: 4/10
Perfect for: Rom-Com Lovers
One Final Word: Okay
