Becky and I went to see What To Expect When You’re Expecting on Saturday at the AMC Theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at What To Expect When You’re Expecting describes the movie as follows…
“The 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...”
What To Expect When You’re Expecting is based on the popular book that just about every woman who is pregnant reads. It’s like the movies New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day where they jump around following a number of people in different situations throughout the film. In this case, there are several couples who are expecting their first child and they are all going through a number of experiences during their first pregnancy.
I noticed that it was mostly women in this movie, but it was the men who were laughing the most in this film. I think this movie brought back too many memories for women who had been pregnant before. It’s not a super funny movie, but there are some very funny parts and the acting is good.
Unfortunately, there are too many stories going on at one time. The film should have been made with at most three stories, instead of trying to figure out every possible scenario from a couple to have a baby, from having twins to adopting in Africa. It was a bit over-the-top with so many stories going on at once. It also jumped from being a a comedy to being far too serious of a drama at times.
I liked this movie more than Becky did, which surprised me, but it’s still getting a rating of a rental.
