Life as We Know It - Has brought the genre to an end

You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

Wow! It's like Heigl is working overtime to get that Worst Actress nod, and put the final nail in the coffin of the rom/com genre!

Having worn diapers until age 4.7, I take it personally when diapers are involved in a film that fails so badly the RAZZIES tag it!   
 
Katherine Heigl has now failed 4 times in a row (quadrice?): 27 Dresses, then The Ugly Truth (the #20 worst film of 2009), then Killers...and now this. 
 
Why didn't she stick with Grey's Anatomy, if that's the source of all her acclaim in the past half-decade? 
 
And were there really 209 romantic comedies since New Year's Day 2010?  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Not by actual count, it just seems that way! Actually, you caught me using hyperbole to emphasize a point...

This is probably the last time we add a rom com to this year's list of Razzie prospects (unless for some reason, "Love and Other Drugs" or "How Do You Know" get bad critical reception).

Katherine Heigl doesn't seem to know the meaning of the words, "Fire your agent!"  Her previous two films were directed by Robert Luketic and both had notoriously low Tomatometer ratings.  This one doesn't look good either.  If it's Tomatometer rating is <20%, then Katherine Heigl should take the outright lead in the race for Worst Actress.  In my opinion, Heigl's "Killers" co-star Ashton Kutcher currently leads the race for Worst Actor...

After four rom-com bombs in a row, it's time for her to find another genre to work in. 

Hmmm ... Heigl in a sci-fi epic ....

Katherine Heigl, put a better diaper on your movies, would ya? . . .

When you think about it, diapers really don't make much sense: With or without them, you're still sitting in our own waste. ...No offense to you, GTAHater.

To cvcjr13: What are you winking at?  
 
To BurnHollywoodBurn: I'd mostly heard over the years that diapers were to prevent staining of clothing or the bed.  
 
A series of physical problems runs in my family, so all the females have to wear them 3 years, and the males for 4 years or longer (as opposed to females for 2 years and males for 3)... so I have every reason to loathe everything about this movie and the trailers, the whole package. If this gets more positive than negative reviews, my faith in moviegoers will hit a new low. I can't express strongly enough how badly I want this film to crash and burn!

Why do you keep saying Katherine Heigl has had 4 flops in a row? The reviews for  http://www.razzies.com/forum/more-2008-movie-forums-listed-alphabetically-27-dresses_forum252.html - 27 DRESSES weren't good,but they were better than the average rom/com... 


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Here's http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?id=katherineheigl.htm - to check out Heigl's "career page" there -- It shows that, while UGLY TRUTH and 27 DRESSES both did "okay" at the box office, KILLERS did about half of what they grossed. Also, it's interesting to note that, despite working quite regularly in movies, Heigl has only had one title that topped $100 million domestic...and most people would not suggest she deserves sole credit for the success of KNOCKED UP...

Because Heigl has had 4 bombs in a row: The last four movies she did got either bad to luke-warm reviews, and all did poor to so-so at the box office. 

Hardly the stuff A-list careers are made of!

To Vits: First, you suggest that all years have at least 1 good rom-com, then you try to predict Letters to Juliet to be the one for this year, and now you're trying to promote 27 Dresses because the reviews "weren't quite as bad"?? You're really struggling to make the romantic comedy genre look better than it is, aren't you?  

To Mr. Burn: I keep forgetting: Besides sacking her talent agent, what genre should Katherine Heigl turn to instead, if rom-coms have been naught but a problem to her?

May I suggest Miss Heigl try sinking her teeth into a straight drama? Try one, if it's epic fail at the box office and laughed at by critics, then by all means, go running back to the rom-coms. It certainly wouldn't hurt her career any more than her current spate of rom-coms have!

By the end of the year, we'll see which is the best least bad rom/com of 2010. There's been very few that received even 40-50% at RT, among them  http://www.razzies.com/forum/letters-to-juliet_forum433.html - LETTERS TO JULIET . The same rating as was given to http://www.razzies.com/forum/more-2008-movie-forums-listed-alphabetically-27-dresses_forum252.html - 27 DRESSES and THE PROPOSAL....

And the last time Heigl attempted drama, she ended up in ZYZZYX ROAD, literally the lowest-grossing movie of all time!

Yeah, ZYZZYX ROAD was a horror movie, or thriller. She should stay away from those! I'm suggesting a full-on, "Oscar bait" serious drama...

What movie is this synopsis describing:  

Café owner Reg and photographer Julia have only one date, because mutual friends tried to match them up, and it goes expectedly wrong. But when that couple dies, their will names the same two joint guardians of their son Waylon, not his aunt Marie with whom he wanted to live.

As part of the terms, they must live together and move in to their dead friends' house. Despite all their efforts and Waylon's positive response, there are serious challenges...

A judge orders a social worker to check up on the couple, and the Aunt make a big challenge to get custody. But in the end, all is well.

Oh, wrong review. That was Neena Beeber's 2004 film "Raising Waylon"

Guess original ideas don't come around often.

I have no clue whatsoever what movie you are talking about, habad, but I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before Hollywood does a remake of it.

habadaka was transcribing a review from IMDb. I'm not saying that's where the review originated, but that's where I saw it first. "Raising Waylon" got average reviews back in 2004, and I think he is trying to say "Life As We Know It" is a blatant rip-off of it.

Oh, well if that is what he is claiming, I wish he would just come out and say rather than doing Miguel's gimmick of posting cryptic quizzes instead of talking about the said movies by name.

People's Choice Awards nominating a movie this gross and unfunny for Katherine Heigl? Do they know nothing of us? Haven't they had enough of Heigl after The Ugly Truth and Killers? No? Well, fudge 'em!

Yeah, that's more for her past work on TV, like a "oh, back when she was good, or at least not super annoying!"

Did Heigl, by any chance, work on any other good shows before Grey's Anatomy?

It makes ZERO logical sense to give her an award tied to this, but for her work in Grey's Anatomy!

It's not like that.Give the awards some credit!

Every bad review this movie has is about being unfunny,but they say Heigl and Duhamel do okay and they have good chemistry.
