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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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