Never deviates from the romantic comedy guidebook. It delivers exactly what you would expect, and nothing further; tears, laughter, romance, and plenty of cute baby moments, awkwardly wrapped in a tragic situation.
In yet another twist on the relationship and baby happiness formula, this predictable and formulaic Hollywood rom com chick flick has some fun moments, despite its occasionally cloying storyline based in the plastic never-land of fake reality
Certainly the story is contrived in places and the tone only just manages to resurface after an early plunge, but if you're willing to go along with it and get involved, you'd have to have a heart of stone not to be at least a little charmed.
