You'll undoubtedly enjoy Jones' What to Expect When You're Expecting far more if you accept it for what it is -- a popcorn movie: warm, fluffy and immediately forgettable.

The highs, lows, unexpected joys and totally expected pains of pregnancy get a comprehensive going over in this consistently funny, warm-hearted ensemble comedy.

I wasn't expecting how warmly I'd feel towards the characters by the end of the movie - and I certainly wasn't expecting to tear up a little bit during one of the couple's denouements. How in hell did that happen?

Appears at first to be a superficial appetizer with little on its mind beyond clich and predictable formula...but some genuine tenderness surfaces..and Banks is terrific.

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

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.

While it's not better than you might expect, it passes the time entertainingly enough.

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.
May 22, 2012
What to Expect trots out the same ol' pregnancy gags, but the film's hilarious Daddy's Group sets it apart from its rom-com peers.

Serves up an adult-sized sippy cup full of good fun, good drama and, most importantly, dirty pregnancy jokes.

...the film's lack of ambition ultimately [prevents] it from becoming anything more than a barely-adequate time-waster.

Expecting is uneven and at times struggles under its own weight, but overcomes its shortcomings to be worthy of ponying up for a babysitter for the rare parental date-night.

Elizabeth Banks provides the laughs in this-isn't-the-horrible-baby-jokes-lightweight-ensemble-comedy-you-think-it-is.

All-star cast headlines bawdy, inconsistently funny comedy.

Terrific film for both men and women and any expectant parent needs to go out and see this and prepare for the road of surprises you will have ahead of you over the next nine months!
May 18, 2012
I found some of its multiple storylines annoying and hopelessly contrived, at first; it's only toward the end, when the film draws from real life, that it finds its heart and becomes relatable for anyone who has been through pregnancy or parenthood.

"What to Expect" isn't an inspired movie, but a manufactured one, but one with some laughs and some moments.
May 17, 2012
Hollywood rarely gives birth to a comedy that's both hilarious and honest. 'What to Expect' hits both chords, defying expectations.
May 17, 2012
Sometimes a dopey sitcom and sometimes a thoughtful look at how intimidating it is to have a kid.

The writing is sharp and the performances bright, and if you've been through the forced gestational march known as pregnancy, there are knowing laughs to be had.
