Holly Berenson (Katherine Heigl) is an up-and-coming caterer and Eric Messer (Josh Duhamel) is a promising network sports director. After a disastrous first date, the only thing they have in common is their dislike for each other and their love for their goddaughter, Sophie. But when they suddenly become all Sophie has in the world, Holly and Messer are forced to put their differences aside. Juggling career ambitions and competing social calendars, they'll have to find some common ground while living under one roof.

2010 Guide Analysis: "The premise sounds like a Lifetime TV movie, but director Greg Berlanti certainly has a knack for these kinds of storylines having served as showrunner on the likes of "Everwood," "Eli Stone" and "Brothers and Sisters". During production the other month, 'Life' made headlines not for its content but for gossip scandals over star Duhamel's love life.

Slotted into the Christmas weekend slot next year, the film is listed as a comedy but the premise sounds a little weighty and out of place for a crowd generally looking for some escapism. Then again, "Marley and Me" turned into a hit in the release slot last year so it may happen again here."
