Director: Kirk Jones
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Running Time: 110 minutes
Synopsis: Based on the 16 million copy best-selling book, What To Expect When You're Expecting is an ensemble romantic-comedy in the vein of Love Actually and Valentine's Day.
The film is a modern look at love through the eyes of four 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.
Verdict: With a star-studded cast, What To Expect When You're Expecting is sure to impress all audiences, from those with a family to those not even thinking about pregnancy or babies!
Surprisingly the film and characters give you that warm fuzzy feeling that you don't normally expect when you're watching the interconnecting lives of four couples. Whilst being hilariously funny, What To Expect When You're Expecting will also shock you and guarantee a tear, or two.
Verdict: A great night out, 'What To Expect When You're Expecting' gives a five connecting stories, from different points of view on starting a family. While Jennifer Lopez portrayal of the unsuccessful IVF mother was great, I was disturbed by the adoption process. Elizabeth Banks stole the show with her all too realistic performance for me on pregnancy, but with the humour that is required by some of us to get through it. A very entertaining movie that can be enjoyed by those with or without a family of all ages.
