There's a lot to be said for such an effortlessly graceful pairing when so little is usually said about such strong female friendships on the big screen.

"Expecting" is not a bad movie; it's just not a very good one. The director's intentions are clear enough but the execution never reaches the expectation.

The weak characterization combined with tonal inconsistencies, by-the-numbers plot structure, and poor writing, create a film that fails to draw its audience in.

Nicely dressed, nicely lit, nicely shot, and completely empty of both wit and observation.

Hardly a bundle of joy.

A fairly laidback movie that isn't serious and isn't funny and isn't much of anything.

A queasy mix of tones and approaches that makes the film feel divided against itself.

The clever script shows the complications of adopting a baby, with a few laughs along the way.

Laughs outweigh pathos in likable movie about a woman's need to have a baby.
