What to Expect When You're Expecting Synopsis


Inspired by the perennial New York Times bestseller of the same name, What to Expect When You're Expecting is a hilarious and heartfelt big screen comedy about five couples whose intertwined lives are turned upside down by the challenges of impending parenthood.

Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules and dance show star Evan find that their high-octane celebrity lives don't stand a chance against the surprise demands of pregnancy. Baby-crazy author and advocate Wendy gets a taste of her own militant mommy advice when pregnancy hormones ravage her body; while Wendy's husband, Gary, struggles not to be outdone by his competitive alpha-Dad, who's expecting twins with his much younger trophy wife, Skyler. Photographer Holly is prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child, but her husband Alex isn't so sure, and tries to quiet his panic by attending a dudes? support group, where new fathers get to tell it like it really is. And rival food truck chefs Rosie and Marco's surprise hook-up results in an unexpected quandary: what to do when your first child comes before your first date?

A kaleidoscopic comedy as universal as it is unpredictable, What to Expect When You're Expecting finds humor and uplift in all the unexpected trials and triumphs of welcoming a child into the world. 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.

With North Carolina on the brain, I got increasingly frustrated with What To Expect for depicting only the easiest, most traditional routes to parenthood, at a time when the definition of "family" is expanding so greatly. Same-sex parents have been raising kids together openly for decades

The decision to have a child is one of the biggest that most of us will ever have to make. There’s an endless number of things to consider, from whether or not you are economically stable enough or even competent enough to care for a child. It’s a decision that Rodrigo Santoro’s character, Alex, is forced to make in the upcoming What To Expect When You’re Expecting and I recently had the chance to sit down with him one-on-one to talk about it.

It's a little strange to see two movies shift their releases so close to the actual date, but not totally unheard of. This shift means the March 16 weekend will have nothing but 21 Jump Street to offer-- given that the Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum comedy is getting great early buzz

Though I can't understand it for the life of me, people love it when celebrities have babies. There's something that people just can't resist about two beautiful people screwing and popping out a future Miley Cyrus/Justin Bieber fan (or whatever the newest sensation is for the tween set when they come of age). For that reason, What To Expect When You're Expecting should appeal to a lot of people.

Boy, did I hate New Year's Eve. The new Garry Marshall film is a bloated mess filled with about 20,000 characters and storylines, all of which will bore you to tears. The truth, however, is that New Year's Eve's failure to be even remotely entertaining shouldn't be much of a surprise. It's just another entry in a long line of multi-narrative romantic comedies that have come around since 2003's Love Actually (the only movie in the subgenre that has been any good).

Given the amount of detail the studio reveals in all of these press releases, it seems possible to assemble the film's entire plot if you put your mind to it. Quaid will be playing the husband of Brooklyn Decker's character-- yes, 57-year-old Quaid will be movie married to a 24-year-old supermodel

It's unfortunate, though, that she'll be playing off Jennifer Lopez's anti-charisma, playing the co-worker and friend to Lopez's character, a woman who winds up adopting a baby from overseas after she has trouble conceiving. Then again, McLendon-Covey is really great at throwing in single lines that completely change the focus of a scene

I actually kind of like the idea of Banks playing the character as a spin on her character from 30 Rock, the driven and power-hungry Avery who names her daughter after Liddy Dole, but kind of assume they'll have to soften her up for what sounds like a very mainstream romantic comedy

Rock is joining the production in the role of Vic, unofficial “leader” of a group of in-over-their-heads expectant fathers who has to alert the guys to what’s in store. Again, it sounds like a portal for material Rock has used in his stand up routine, but that’s fine with me. This loosely shaped adaptation of Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel’s baby and birthing Bible needed a little edge, and Rock should bring just that.

Jennifer Lopez has really become an unwatchable actress, not because she's terrible at what she does, but because the projects that she chooses are absolutely terrible. In the last decade she's put her name to some truly notable pieces of shit like Gigli, Monster In Law, and Maid in Manhattan, yet she keeps plugging away and gets people to hire her.
