Here's the thing -- it's not as immediately offensive as, say, The Ugly Truth. It's just the story of two people thrown together under terrible circumstances and in true, Hollywood romance fashion, realizing that they actually kind of like each other. It's not a pristine romcom trailer; you've got to ignore star Josh Duhamel's tendency to be a physical danger to the tyke, whether it's dropping her or giving the poor kid "a little shove." But for Heigl, it seems to take the recent overt misogyny and crap (that flies in the face of her Knocked Up comments), and wipe it away to reveal a simple, and fairly likable romantic lead. I clicked on the trailer prepared for more want to kill romcom fare, and found myself pleasantly surprised in the end.
Then again, it's still a film that seems to mash together all of her likable and loathed previous films, and could just be another reminder of her past work and controversy.
