What to Expect When You're Expecting review
Daniel Corleone, FilmCrave
21 September 2012
Excerpt: Not sure about the fad of bringing in popular celebrities to be on a film, which in this critics mind must have emanated from Love Actually. A story of 5 couples, 4 of which who had a baby. Holly (Jennifer Lopez) plans of adopting, Jules (Cameron Diaz) hosts a weight-loss fitness show, Rosie (Anna Kendrick) experiences problems, Wendy (Elizabeth Banks) runs a boutique, and Skyler (Brooklyn Decker) will have twins.
Summary: Better than i expected it to be. The trailers make it seem like a goofy movie about dumb husbands, and it's not at all. The movie does a fairly decent job of giving us different views and experiences that can occur when a woman is pregnant (or unable to in one case). The movie avoided a huge pitfall by not being preachy. All in all, I found that the movie held my interest, and at certain points actually made me feel for certain characters.
Summary: As I write this, Gwynn is expecting our first child in December. It didn't make the movie any worse and may have made it a bit better. It was not horrible though many of the funny scenes occurred in the trailer. I can't recommend this movie but see it if your wife is preggers or if you must on date night. Otherwise, skip it.
Conclusion: I really enjoyed this movie the different characters attitudes and experiences of pregnancy/parenthood are brilliant the best parts in the film are 'the dudes' its not just for the ladies i saw this with 2 other couples and the men all enjoyed it too cant wait for the dvd!
