What to Expect When You Make a Movie Based on a Parenting Book

Oh, Hollywood. Yes, we’ve heard it all before: “There are no new ideas.” We get it. But really? What to Expect When You’re Expecting is a decent foundation for a movie? A movie starring Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Rock, Chace Crawford, Matthew Morrison, that hot Spanish guy from Love Actually, Elizabeth Banks and perhaps every other celebrity known to humanity, no less. Sigh.

The movie follows a number of couples, all who come to building a family in different ways. So, not an indispensable guide to your baby’s time in utero as much as it is another lighthearted ensemble comedy. And as stupid as it has the potential to be, it actually looks like it might be (gasp!) cute and possibly also… funny? Is this just my pregnancy hormones talking?

Watch the trailer and let me know what you think: will you see What to Expect When You’re Expecting when it hits theatres in May? And also please explain: why is Cameron Diaz talking like that?
