Aside from the title, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, being a mouthful, it’s also a fabulous look into the many different types of pregnancies. The film also has an all star cast that I was a little hesitant about. I mean Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, and Elizabeth Banks all under one roof for a film about getting/being pregnant? No thank you. But they never had a real interaction. It was a split script where the editing brought everything perfectly together. It’s kind of like of those all star films like Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve but done well.
I love that each woman (including Brooklyn Decker and Anna Kendrick) went about getting pregnant differently and that each pregnancy is individual yet relatable to any woman watching. There were moments of this movie where I was rolling on the floor laughing. While it had me in tears later. And they weren’t happy, they were sad tears. But the movie is so worth the sad tears because it comes back and makes you smile with happy tears then. Although I will say it’s a very predictable movie, but why can’t it be? I was there just for the ride and it delivered in that ride.
ALTHOUGH I will say there was one male character put into the mix specifically to make the women moan and oh how he delivers(Joe Manganiello). One handed pull-ups. That’s all I have to say. Oh and shirtless. Shirtless, one handed pull-ups. Oh wait I can show you some of it:
Even the men are in love with him. The male cast is perfect as well. God just looking at him doing those consecutive pull ups in that gif, this review has became significantly more difficult to write. Is it harder to read now too? Should I have not included that gif? Oh god I’m torn, but who am I kidding me, that gif is more entertaining than my writing is. So the other men in the show have a great cohesion together. Almost as great as those abs. Holy shit. I’m done. This review is done. It’s a good movie. If you want more synopsis or spoilers or a discussion get at me in the comments. Maybe that gif would be scrolled up far enough then. I mean lets be real, you’re not reading this as much as I’m not writing it.
