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.
Excerpt: Inspired by the perennial bestseller, What to Expect when you're expecting is a hilarious and heartfelt comedy about five couples whose intertwined lives are turned upsidedown by the challenges of impending parenthood. The fils stars Cameron Diza, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Matthew Morrison, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Rodrigo Santoro, BenFalcone and Joe Manganiello.
For people who have or will have experience of childbirth

Excerpt: From the New York Times best selling book of the same name comes a movie adaptation dusted with Hollywood stars, a sprinkle of humour and the texture of cardboard. The film revolves around couples with intertwining lives all of which experience pregnancy in some way- trying, adoption, miscarriage, preparation and so on, covering almost all grounds on the topic.
A highly enjoyable film about the different situations you find yourself in when expecting a child

Excerpt: *Please note this is a film only review* What to Expect When You're Expecting is a romantic comedy inspired by the New York Times' bestseller book of the same name, released in May 2012, directed by Kirk Jones (the man behind Nanny McPhee and Waking Ned). I have been broody for about 15 years now (and that's only a very slight exaggeration!) so love everything and anything babies so I probably would have seen this film anyway.
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!
