There are a few things about this movie that are really annoying. The first being the fact that we don't get to know the parents of baby Sophie very well, so we as the audience don't feel anything when they're suddenly gone.
Second thing is Holly and Messer's shock to being guardians of their baby. For Sophie's first birthday party, the parents ask if they can take a picture of their baby with her 'GOD parents', which just about everyone knows is the people who take care of the children if something happens to their parents.
Surely being named god parents is a big clue there, but it doesn't click for either of them.
I was quite looking forward to watching a romantic comedy with Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel, but it wasn't as good as I was expecting it to be.
It follows the plot of most romantic comedies with two characters who either don't know each other or hate each other, work through a crisis, no real surprises, because you know it'll all work out in the end... a little predictable.
The comedy pretty much revolved around the baby half the time, which makes you think if the baby wasn't in it, it would be really boring. I love the neighbourhood watch gang too, they're hilarious. But Heigl and Duhamel were a little disappointing.
Overall a 7/10 because it could have been a lot better.
