WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU ARE EXPECTING Movie Review

Saturday, May 19th, 2012





This star-studded collaboration brings out the best in the romantic comedy genre. Director Kirk Jones delivers this hilarious and heartfelt alternating adaptation of the self-help book “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” by Heidi Murkoff. The movie is essentially an emotional rollercoaster that ranges from couples receiving bad news regarding pregnancy, on one extreme, to the humorous realization and delivery of twins, on the other extreme, with a range of unexpected touching situations in between. Gifted comic actress Elizabeth Banks joins the likes of Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, , Dennis Quaid, and Chris Rock, just to name a few, to bring us the take on relationships, life and family with a spotlight on pregnancy. This uber talented celebrity line-up caroms off each other with lots of zingers and issues that work and carries the movie’s message through to the very end.  READ FULL REVIEW
