Diaz's plotline seems to revolve solely around an argument with Morrison over the merits of circumcision. She's pro-cut. He's fanatically anti-cut. Clearly, as is the film's editor.

Provides good chuckles and heartfelt drama - paired with an equal amount of familiar gags and flat story ideas.

What To Expect When You're Expecting delivers a stale plot, mostly underwritten characters and almost no joy. Expect little and you may not be entirely disappointed.

Most of the time, the sentimental rom-com antics and underdeveloped archetypes feel as fake as the big bellies the ladies are showing off.

The film is dully shot and so predictably plotted, you could tick off the items like you're packing a bag for the delivery room.

What To Expect When You're Expecting is the kind of witless schmatz-fest that gives women's pictures a bad name...

Bringing a child into the world is no laughing matter, and all involved seem to have done their level best to make things as mirthless as possible.

A dirty diaper bag of sex jokes, sentimental mush, cartoonish claptrap and weary parent-to-be cliches.

Cross and Hach have concocted one of the most bland, basic, and unadventurous scripts in recent memory.

Expect that two hours will feel like nine months, and that before it's over you'll be screaming for an epidural to your brain.

The cast gives it their all, but this tepid dramedy lacks fervour and originality.

This might sound obvious, but I don't think Hollywood thinks much of women.

The eggs are there; someone just forgot to fertilise them.

Like childbirth, (it's) very messy and painful at times. But like raising children, there will be a few tears and a few laughs and somehow you'll get through it.

The movie turns out to be a little of everything yet succeeds only occasionally at anything.

All the leads are ultimately betrayed by a script almost as silly as the idea of building a romcom around a pregnancy guide.

These women have nothing that interesting to offer and their husbands are just as dull.
