LIFE AS WE KNOW IT is a romantic comedy about a mismatched couple who are thrown together suddenly when they become the guardians of a baby girl. The film was classified '12A' for moderate sex and drug references.

The moderate sex references and innuendo are embedded in the film's comic context and reflect its take on modern relationships. The references lack any undue detail and none are particularly crude, which meant that they met with the allowance of the BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' which state that 'sex references should not go beyond what is suitable for young teenagers. Frequent crude references are unlikely to be acceptable'.

The drug references occur in two scenes, firstly when a bag of pot is confiscated and secondly when it is found by two characters who decide to use some of it. There is no portrayal of actual drug use, which is suggested only by the behaviour of the two characters who are seen talking nonsense as they watch children's programmes on television. There is no overt glamorisation of the activity and the treatment of the issue does not exceed what is permitted by the Guidelines at '12A'/'12', which state that 'any misuse of drugs must be infrequent and should not be glamorised or give instructional detail'.

The film also contains a mild sex scene and some mild-to-moderate bad language which includes uses of 'God', 'Jesus', 'hell', 'butt', 'frigging', 'ass', 'asshole', 'screwed', 'shit' and 'dick'.
