What to Expect When You’re Expecting 2012

     Inspired by the bestselling book of the same name.  Five couples with intertwined lives are expecting children at the same time.  Jules, a TV fitness expert is expecting with her partner, dance show star Evan.  Wendy is an author and baby advocate, she finds it hard to follow her own advice when pregnancy hormones take over.  Her husband, Gary, is a former weight loss project for Jules and he struggles with constant competition with his dad.  Skyler, his dad’s much younger wife is expecting twins.  Holly and Alex have tried to have a child, they are going through the process of adopting from Ethiopia.  Rosie and Marco are in competition with each other in the food truck business until they are expecting a baby together.
     I waited a while to watch this movie because I wasn’t "expecting" very much and that’s what I got!  This has its funny and sad moments but I think it could’ve been much better.  The screenplay is just too weak and predictable.   3* (This movie is OK)

110 min, Comedy directed by Kirk Jones with Cameron Diaz, Matthew Morrison, J. Todd Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford, Brooklyn Decker, Ben Falcone, Anna Kendrick, Matthew Morrison.

Note:  Blockbuster 3*, imdb 5.5 out of 10, 22% critic 48% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
