What To Expect When You're Expecting... A Bad Film

What To Expect When You're Expecting... A Bad Film

It’s not entirely clear how one morphs “the bible of American pregnancy” into a movie, but where there’s potential profit, there’s Hollywood.

What To Expect When You’re Expecting, the pregnancy guide that has consistently topped the New York Times‘ Best Seller list since its 1984 release, is being loosely interpreted crudely exploited as the story of five couples who “suffer the many joys of the childbirth process.”

Naturally, the film’s producers are sparing no expense where casting is concerned — funny folks Chris Rock, Cameron Diaz and Elizabeth Banks obviously serve to bring the laughs, while not-so-funny Jennifer Lopez, Chace Crawford and Rodrigo Santoro get to show up and look sexy.

Perhaps the big wigs at Lionsgate are hoping the ensemble cast will distract viewers from the lack of throwaway elements like characters and story in favor of easy and absurd laughs — like Cameron Diaz’s elation at having boobs, or Jennifer Lopez adopting Egyptian children using Skype.

Because what else is there to being pregnant and having children than cliched jokes about monstrously hormonal women and their tragically clueless men? According to the trailer, that about sums up the experience.

Check out the trailer below.
