Life As We Know It (Review)

Romantic comedy wallows in contrivance and stunning immaturity

0 Comments · Monday, October 11, 2010
Perpetually squabbling single godparents (Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel) must step up to raise their godchild after an accident claims the lives of their best friends. The premise, which throws these two together, is so typically cliched you might wonder why bother investigating it, especially when it's executed in such rote fashion as director Greg Berlanti does. Grade: D-plus.  

Killers (Review)

Rudderless genre mash-up can't decide what it wants to be

Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl beat Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz in the summer race to the 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' box-office derby, but 'Killers,' with Tom Selleck in a supporting role as Heigl's nebbishly over-protective father, feels like a pilot for a 1980s television series rather than a would-be summer action comedy. Grade: D-.  

The Ugly Truth (Review)

The truth is that this romantic comedy falls flat

Almost exactly 20 years ago, 'When Harry Met Sally' practically perfected the sympathetic control-freak as romantic comedy heroine. And it takes more than a list-maker with a pretty face to earn the "sympathetic" part of that description. Sadly, Katherine Heigl is no Meg Ryan. Grade: C.
