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.
Comedy - This is a comedy inspired by the self-help book of the same name,
which is exactly what that idea implies: a chick flick centering
around the theme of pregnancy. This is a true ensemble piece, with
the female cast members such as Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks, and
Jennifer Lopez having roles and stories of equal prominence. The male
cast members all have much smaller roles. Language and adult themes
make the film of some caution to parents of young children.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word; 23 S-words; 1 GD; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Comic hits. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Comic banter and wisecracks, sometimes suggestive; body function humor.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 96 moviegoers:
TEENS:Thirteen of the fourteen reviews are female and they nearly all loved it. Only one rated it as average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:For this type of movie, these are great reviews from the guys. Three loved it and the others indicated they enjoyed it very much. As could be expected, the ladies enjoyed this movie very much with just over half loving it.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are very similar. Approximately half loved it with approximately 20% more rating it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Most of the rest rated it "Good/Average," which is a bit low but certainly not bad.
Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules and dance show star Evan find that their high-octane celebrity lives don't stand a chance against the surprise demands of pregnancy. Baby-crazy author and advocate Wendy gets a taste of her own militant mommy advice when pregnancy hormones ravage her body; while Wendy's husband, Gary, struggles not to be outdone by his competitive alpha-Dad, who's expecting twins with his much younger trophy wife, Skyler. Photographer Holly is prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child, but her husband Alex isn't so sure, and tries to quiet his panic by attending a "dudes" support group, where new fathers get to tell it like it really is. And rival food truck chefs Rosie and Marco's surprise hook-up results in an unexpected quandary: what to do when your first child comes before your first date?
