Abort.

All the leads are ultimately betrayed by a script almost as silly as the idea of building a romcom around a pregnancy guide.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

What to expect? Not a lot.

In the end there is enough pregnancy humour to give audiences a good old belly laugh.

Technically the genre isn't beneath contempt. But this movie is.

Someday Hollywood will think of women as more than fallopian tubes in heels; until then, we're stuck with this kind of project.

On the whole, I'd rather give birth.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Mutual loathing and eye-rolling sustain - horribly - many of the couples involved.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Favouring pratfalls over wit and insight, the picture offers only occasional respite in a "dudes group" of dads who meet in the park with their offspring, led by Chris Rock.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Some laughs while you are watching but that old deja vu feeling just won't go away.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Poor Kirk Jones, who directed Nanny McPhee and Waking Ned, can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear of a script. But he could have left out the golf cart chase.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

One of those resolutely bland Hollywood star machines that bears no resemblance to the real world at all.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 24, 2012
It's exactly what we expected it to be. If you're going to have a baby it'd be a good thing to watch. It shows all the things people say to you.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

While it's not better than you might expect, it passes the time entertainingly enough.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

What to Expect is a shallow and sickly-sweet offering that's best avoided.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 23, 2012
Has just enough humour and engaging performances to prevent cramps and nausea during viewing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The film has a job to do and laughs are provided, if not as laugh-out-loud as fans of Knocked Up and Baby Mama may be expecting.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 23, 2012
Largely predictable, by-the-numbers fare, but the likeable cast ensure that it remains just about watchable, even if the laughs and genuine emotional moments are thin on the ground.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

An awful ensemble comedy to complete that Valentine's Day / New Year's Eve box-set, complete with sexist clichés.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

What To Expect When You're Expecting is the kind of witless schmatz-fest that gives women's pictures a bad name...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
