LIFE AS WE KNOW IT (2010)
Life As We Know It || Holly Berenson is the owner of a small Atlanta bakery, and Eric Messer is a promising television technical sports director for the Atlanta Hawks. Their best friends, Peter and Alison, set them up on a blind date that goes horribly wrong, and results in both hating each other. As the years go by, Peter and Alison get married, have a baby girl named Sophie, and select Holly and Messer – who teasingly tolerate each other – as the godparents.
Shortly after Sophie’s first birthday, Peter and Alison are killed in a car crash. Holly and Messer learn that their friends named them Sophie’s joint guardians. Holly and Messer put their differences aside and move into Sophie’s home. Living together proves to be a struggle. One night, Holly is away at an important catering job when Messer is given the opportunity to direct a big basketball game. Messer takes Sophie with him, but her crying distracts him, leading to him making a big mistake on the broadcast. When they get home, Messer and Holly argue, but later they make up.
Holly goes on a date with Sam, Sophie’s pediatrician. The date is cut short when Messer calls to tell Sam that Sophie has a high fever. When they join him at the hospital, Messer sees Holly kiss Sam. Over time, the guardians discover that raising a child more expensive than they had expected, and Holly can no longer afford to expand her business. Messer helps by investing in her company, and they cement the new relationship by going on a date, which ends with them having sex, while developing strong feelings.
