On Facebook last night, I discovered a picture that was relentlessly amusing. It read 'replace one word in a movie…
What to Expect When You're Expecting
It's too late to pull out now.
A look at love through the eyes of five interconnected couples experiencing the thrills and surprises of having a baby, and ultimately coming to understand the universal truth that no matter what you plan for, life doesn't always deliver what's expected.
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.
This was the only movie available to watch on the flight. Don't judge me. It was terrible.
One star for the one story line I was interested in.
Have to say the first time I watched this I was so disappointed... but after some time had passed it came on TV and it actually made me laugh!
I think this is one of those movies where the more times you watch it, the more it grows on you... Sort of like a new song in the charts and at first you hate it.. but the more you listen to it, the more you enjoy it and before long you know all the lyrics!
waste of time.
The title tells you everything: all the ins and out about pregnancies and babies. The movie follows five different stories about this subject. First we have Jules, the presenter of a weight loss program, who is having a baby with her partner Evan. There is Gary and his wife Wendy who have been trying to get pregnant for two years. But when it finally happens, it’s not as fantastic as she always thought. Gary’s father Ramsey and his very young new wife Skyler are also expecting, and she does have the glow that Wendy was always hoping for. The young Rosie gets pregnant after a one-night-stand with Marco, the guy who left her on prom night. And finally Holly and…
"There's no such thing as ready. You just jump on a moving train and you try not to die"
No pun intended, but I really was not expecting much with this film. My wife and I watched it for the sole reason that she was pregnant with our first child and we thought it would be a fun throwaway watch. The film was even more of a throwaway than we expected; it is, for the most part, pretty stupid.
What I found most irritating about it was that the characters were little more than cartoon characters--the film would have been just as convincing if Fred and Wilma Flintstone had been in it. In this world, all moms are anxiety-ridden queen bees determined to raise the perfect child, and all dads are incompetent, insecure slobs who view raising children as…
I honestly had some hope for this to be at least entertaining. Mind you, I don't have kids or want kids, but i liked the cast that is in this and figured it would have some laughs. I'm a fan of Cameron Diaz lately for her comedy, and I'm in love with Anna Kendrick, both for her acting and her crazy cuteness. The rest of the cast is riddled with other actors that I have enjoyed in the past as well, like Elizabeth Banks, Dennis Quaid and Chris Rock. Rebel Wilson is also in it and that's 1 actor that I was sure would have some great comedic moments.
Well, in the end I was let down, but I guess…
Embora seja aquela comédia água-com-açúcar, lotada de coincidências, caricata e muito superficial no trato das questões de relacionamentos, é cheio de bebês! As cenas do grupo de pais cuidando das crianças é o ponto alto. Estilo Sessão da Tarde.
