Inspired by the perennial bestseller, WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING is a hilarious and heartfelt comedy about five couples whose intertwined lives are turned upside down by the challenges of impending parenthood. The movie features “lots of laughs, heart , and a terrific ensemble of actors at their best” (Pete Hammond, Box Office Magazine) and is “A must see!” (Gayle King, O Magazine). The film stars Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Matthew Morrison, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Rodrigo Santoro, Ben Falcone and Joe Manganiello.
An all-star cast afflicted with baby fever gives What to Expect When You're Expecting a lot of heart and more than a few laughs. This is a fictionalized account of the best-selling advice book, interweaving several couples' storylines as they deal with pregnancy, fertility issues, adoption, and more. Standouts include Cameron Diaz as a high-powered celebrity fitness trainer and Matthew Morrison of Glee as her TV dance partner; Jennifer Lopez, a successful photographer yearning for a child; and Elizabeth Banks (30 Rock), hilarious as a sanctimonious motherhood champion who has to confront some of her own preachiness when she suddenly becomes pregnant herself. And the guys are funny, too--especially Chris Rock, a member of the "dudes' group" who bond with their tots and each other every Saturday in the park, and Dennis Quaid, a blowhard expecting twins with his new trophy wife (Brooklyn Decker, a very talented comedian). There's not much of a plot in What to Expect When You're Expecting; it's more like a series of well-directed (by Kirk Jones) snapshots or webisodes--but the strong cast and light touch give the movie its appeal. It helps if you are in or have been in baby-fever mode to truly appreciate What to Expect; it also helps if you enjoy frequent barf jokes and a ton of product placements for Delta Air Lines. Overall, though, What to Expect When You're Expecting is a cheery send-up and embrace of the miracle--and terror--of pregnancy. Pass the pickles and ice cream. --A.T.

The dudes group was also classic especially their love of Davis (the world traveling hot body of work played by Joe Manganiello).
The rest of the couples did not do a lot for me. Although Anna Kendrick and Chase Crawford had pretty good chemistry that storyline was thin at best. Cameron Diaz reverted back to screeching worst with Matthew Morrison (sorry, dude, I'm out on "Glee" completely) and that storyline just fell so flat. Although Jennifer Lopez is an insanely underrated actress and again gives a great performance in limited screentime, I felt her partner in adopting the Ethiopian (yes, I'm not making this up) baby, Rodrigo Santoro, was really just there.
The extra on the dude dads' group was good, but the other extra on the whole book this movie is based on bored the pants off me that I began wondering why that metaphor makes any sense (why would something boring remove one's pants yet something exciting would knock someone;'s socks off?).
