  • ... it has something that few modern films do: a realistic insight into the female perspective.

  • The tale alternates between whimsy and realism a little too much...but is pleasant, passable viewing.

  • Desire, love and madness leads to motherhood in this warts-and-all look at the A to Z of what happens to a woman when she has a baby... there's an inherent feeling of truth about the work and performances, resonating especially with female audiences

    The early scenes, when the main characters first meet are cute. Then it becomes progressively more and more conventional, so in other words it becomes predictable. The acting is strong though and there is plenty of laughs. The giving birth scene is actually hilarious.
