What to Expect What Your Expecting

Hello after a long absence I am back. OK our subject  as you can see is many know as the famous or infamous depending on what you look at and talk too book. Actually no I'm gonna talk about the movie but, just to make sure you all are aware lets talk about this book first.

This book is known for helping pregnant mothers everywhere keep their mind at ease. In fact most mothers still have this book honestly it looks like it will never go out of print. This movie of the same title inspired by this book has you guessed it all to do with pregnancy.

OK the overview this is a romantic comedy directed by Kirk Jones and as you would expect it about pregnancy.  This film chooses to focus on five different couples all having baby issues.

So lets analyze each couple one by one ladies first ^_^  

*Warning Spoilers skip to next stars for the spoiler free part*

Elizabeth Banks plays a woman running a baby store particularly how to feed your baby milk and how to sooth your breasts. this woman looks like she fell out of the 1950's and during the first part of the film acted like a perfect house wife until she gets pregnant. This woman plays the part of a woman who always wanted to get pregnant she even says she wanted to for the glow. She learns however when she does that pregnancy is hell and not glamorous but a lot a work. I didn't like her character at first but I found her to be one of my favorites by the end.

I choose to talk about Brooklyn Decker's character next because Elizabeth Banks character's husband's father.....O.O damn what a mouth full anyway is this is the father's wife. The father and his son seem to have family issues both their wife's are both expecting hmm the last time I saw something similar this was in Father of the Bride Part 2. that was done decently this was ehh done only OK Brooklyn Decker's character was more or less along for the ride in this movie the best part with her was the baby shower scene she even though not really liked by her step son defends him on to her husband it was nice moment. She was a nice character but she won't be the one you remember.

Jennifer Lopez plays a character who can't get pregnant wait WAIT THIS MOVIE IS NOT JUST PREGNANCY! yep it's true it's not and I love Jennifer's character her story even made me tear up a little yeah I know I'm a big baby XD. she plays a hopeful girl in a a low playing job who can't pregnant and turns to adoption. She works hard fills out everything and tries her hardest to get a baby. Her story was sweet and heart felt I enjoyed it.

Anna Kendrick plays a girl who didn't plan a pregnancy freaks out but unlike every other movie she doesn't have it no not by abortion a miscarriage. What this does is effectively end her story about being about pregnancy and more about her relationship with the guy who got her pregnant in the first place. I'm a little on the fence on this one I liked her story but it seemed like it could do well by itself rather then part of this entourage of mothers.

Cameron Diaz plays a television star and  I guess celebrity pregnancy role. Being slashed by the media and her boyfriend her knocked her up all while trying to keep her show together really takes it out of her. Honestly her story was barely there despite being the first one introduced but as it goes her story gets better.

Now to talk about the dad's although the group pictured above are not the husbands of any of the lady's I introduced. no they are Dudes Group as it says run by Chris Rock a group of dads that love being dads. A little over the top right to how they were introduced.

Ben Falcone plays the husband to the baby lady as she is titled. All he wants besides being their for his wife is to settle a race with his dad. that's right a race his dad and him apparently have a long history of family trouble which climaxes at his dad's new wife's baby shower and then heals in delivery. so all in all his side of things was more about healing the family then his wife's pregnancy. so it was good but doesn't really stick with his wife's story that much.

Dennis Quaid's character like his wife is just along for the ride except when fulfilling the story of son verses father. he plays a rich famous race car driver father with a lot of money who is obsessed with winning. his best moment was the devilry room hallway when he comforts his son it was nice but not great.

Rodrigo Santoro plays the husband of Jennifer Lopez's character. He plays the guy that's unsure and doesn't know if he want's a child or even a new house and tries his hardest for his wife even trying to get in the dudes group you saw above. He in relation to his wives fit very well and ti flowed wonderfully like I said their story made me tear up and for good reason it's great.

Chance Crawford is the boyfriend of the girl who doesn't plan and like I said they have a nice story but it was more about their relationship and they weren't exactly needed but I am glad they were their it was a sweet melancholy and nice story.

Matthew Morrison plays the boyfriend of the celebrity pregnant girl. he deals with all his wife's wishes and feeling like he has no say it actually came across well and related well to pregnancy  and it's stresses. so their story was good not bad not perfect but not exactly great it was however enjoyable.

*Spoilers End here*

OK the verdict it is actually pretty good and enjoyable despite it's long length. the stories are enjoyable and the characters are likable :) I give it 3 stars it's worth a watch for sure but only buy it if you thought it was so enjoyable you will watch it more then a couple of times for a couple I would say it was a decent and pretty good date movie.

That's all for now now like a pregnant mother I'm craving some chocolate see you later all ^__^
