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
I'm calling bull$#!%. Pregnancy sucks.
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.
Trust me, I'm just as surprised as you are that I enjoyed my way through this film. Nothing groundbreaking going on here, but it's a charming cast and there are some tame laughs to be had. Worth a stream if you don't feel like thinking for a night.
Someone told me to watch this. If I remembered who, I would doff my glove to slap them in the face.
1 star for the abundance of attractive people in attractive locations.
1 star for at least attempting to show a diversity of situations, circumstances, and people.
Somehow this movie appears to have been made by people with no knowledge of parenthood, relationships, pregnancy, or even reality tv. Unearned random miscarriage scene surrounded by poorly written slapstick comedy makes bad movie borderline offensive.
Glad to have finally watched it but a little long winded. Kudos for the werewolf guy from True Blood.
I would really hate myself and my husband if we were like any of these characters. I do like Anna Kendrick, though.
shame on me
Pila de amor a esta película. Me gusta cuando logran mostrar a muchas personas diferentes viviendo la misma situación, porque cada uno la maneja distinto. Tiene alto elenco, también. Y está Chace Crawford, que me puede hacer pila de pibes. Igual, si hubiese pagado para ver esta película en el cine, habría salido enojada. Porque es una película hecha para ser vista a las 11 de la noche de un martes, en tu casa comiendo galletitas.
