  • Morning sickness afflicts most of the potential mommies. For me, the movie itself triggered the vomiting. show more

  • In the end, What to Expect, isn't an inspired movie, but a manufactured one, but one with some laughs and some moments. Plus, it has Chris Rock, who gets to liven things up as the ringleader of a beleaguered fathers' group. show more

  • What audiences should expect is a tone-deaf, superficial, charmless ensemble rom-com, focused on five attractive, but uninteresting, couples. show more

    I really enjoyed this movie. I tought it was fun to watch and i was able to relate to each story, the one in particular with elizabeth banks. You mom\'s out there no what I mean.

    This movie was terrible. The only reason it gets two stars instead of one is because Chris Rock was funny. Otherwise it\'s an extreme charicature of what real people are actually like. Each couple has an over-bearing, controlling woman, and a weak man- whenever the men attempt to stand up for themselves, or have an opinion they are shot down- and ultimately they learn the lesson of just let the woman have what she wants, pregnancy is tough! Yet another movie where the plot is shoved along thanks to seemingly intelligent people making poor decisions. They squandered an opportunity to share some actual information about pregnancy in favor for nearly unrelated screwball moments and couples fighting. Bah, I say. Bah!

    A lot of funny yet poignant moments. Not oscar worthy but worth admission.
