What to Expect When You're Expecting
It's too late to pull out now.
Challenges of impending parenthood turn the lives of five couples upside down. Two celebrities are unprepared for the surprise demands of pregnancy; hormones wreak havoc on a baby-crazy author, while her husband tries not to be outdone by his father, who's expecting twins with his young trophy wife; a photographer's husband isn't sure about his wife's adoption plans; a one-time hook-up results in a surprise pregnancy for rival food-truck owners.
This took all my years of film training not to turn it off within the opening ten minutes and it never improved. In fact if I was a woman I’d be offended that this is the sort of shit Hollywood tries to shove in my face in the name of entertainment. It’s a horrible excuse for a film in every conceivable way from its excruciatingly unfunny attempts at humour to its ultra-conservative message (notice which couple suffer from a miscarriage - no doubt punishment for getting pregnant from a one night stand).
The five interconnected stories about the trials and tribulations of pregnancy are predominantly played for laughs and follow the same template - the woman is confident about wanting…
Perfectly captures the pain and agony of childbirth.
Well, I'm calling it: pregnancy sucks.
A dramedy based on an honest to God pregnancy guide, not a novel, but an actual guide for pregnancy. What could possibly go wrong? You would think it would be hard to get an actual story out of a "pregnancy guide" and after watching this film I would guess that assumption to be right. Lionsgate's President of Motion Picture Productions, Alli Shearmur, said this had potential to be a franchise. This is what's wrong with fucking Hollywood.
There is nothing to analyze. The film features five couples who are expecting kids... and that is IT. Apparently whenever screenwriter Heather Hach would have a hard time thinking of anything remotely resembling a plot, she…
What to expect when you're expecting. Expect the worst. I could have done with some gas and air myself to get through it.
I make it a point to never touch my face so as to preserve my extremely delicate complexion. I haven't put a single finger to my face in over two years. If anyone else touches my face, they die. I've racked up quite a body count. But I would rather rub a greasy rotisserie chicken across my forehead than watch this cuntstain again.
I'm gong to pay dearly for forcing my husband to watch this.

I was bored and this was on TV. There were some good performances and some humor, but it was a cliched, overdramatic, and rushed mess. The script was also just ugh.
There's so many jokes I could make in poor, poor taste, but I feel What to expect when your expecting isn't worth that kind of effort. It amazes me that there's so many films out there that manage to pull big names into these type of pictures. Is it because they make money? Because I can't imagine the actors get a lot out of this besides that. Even from a "is it entertaining?" stand point, this one is found lacking. Highlight was when I legitimately fell asleep.
Δεν πέρασα άσχημα.
I don't know why everyone keeps trying to tell me this movie sucks.
I think it's great.
I laughed, I cried, I got broody...
It's got everything you could want! I cared about each and every character. Stop complaining and just love it.
This was not bad, although some of the characters were stupid. What is the deal with Dennis Quaid and Brooklyn Decker? That was an utterly bizarre coupling. Elizabeth Banks was the bright spot of the film, she was quite good. Ultimately, What to Expect When You're Expecting was what I expected. It doesn't have anything new to say about pregnancy and everything that goes along with it, but I wasn't expecting it to. It could have been worse.
I mainly watched this for Anna Kendrick.
Can't really say I cared for much of it, it had it's moments though.
I got what I expected.
