I had heard quite a bit about this movie so I decided to check it out as I had heard that it would be quite funny. It seemed like it would be one of the better romantic comedy movies of 2012. With many famous persons like Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Matthew Morrison and some actors I would have expected it to be a success. Yet it turned out to be a waste of time.
The movie is basically about five couples who are expecting a baby under weird and twisted conditions. For an example, Cameron Diaz plays the leader of a biggest looser show and Jennifer Lopez’s boyfriend in the movie was a guy she fell in love with during a similar show to “Dancing With The Stars.” We also get to see a group of dads walking around with their kids and discussing things.
This movie could have been a good comedy, but it was so cliché that it almost turned out to be an unofficial parody of all similar movies. It was predictable and the script contained boring humor. The plot brought nothing new and the characters were dumb and ridiculous. The only good thing about this movie is that you can actually see that it was shoot through a good camera.
In the end What To Expect When You Are Expecting turned out to be “expect what you think you will expect. 2/ 10
