Pregnancy can be an overwhelming experience, filled with lots of surprises and “unknowns” – you never really know “what to expect when you’re expecting”! It can be tough just trying to fall pregnant, never mind the actual pregnancy, the birth and all the 100’s of decisions there are to make. It’s always easier to laugh about it, after the fact! We all need a good laugh sometimes and what better than a great comedy to do the job! I am super excited about the release of “What to expect when you’re expecting” in cinemas next month. It looks hilarious and has a fantastic cast!
The film is inspired by the perennial New York Times bestseller of the same name, What to Expect When You’re Expecting. It is a hilarious and heartfelt big screen comedy, about five couples whose intertwined lives are turned upside down by the challenges of impending parenthood.
Delighted at the prospect of starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules (Cameron Diaz) and dance show star Evan (Matthew Morrison) find that their fast-paced celebrity lives don’t stand a chance against the surprise demands of pregnancy.
Baby-crazy author and advocate Wendy (Elizabeth Banks) gets a taste of her own militant mommy advice, when pregnancy hormones ravage her body. While Wendy’s husband, Gary (Ben Falcone), struggles not to be outdone by his competitive alpha-Dad, Ramsey (Denis Quaid), who’s expecting twins with his much younger trophy wife, Skyler (Brooklyn Decker).
Photographer Holly (Jennifer Lopez) is prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child. Her husband Alex (Rodrigo Santoro) isn’t so sure, and tries to quiet his panic by attending a “dudes” support group, where new fathers – get to tell it like it really is! Rival, food truck, chefs Rosie and Marco’s surprise hook-up leaves them wondering, what to do, when your first child comes before your first date?
“What to Expect When You’re Expecting” promises to be a humorous and uplifting tale of all the unexpected trials and triumphs of welcoming a child into the world. The film stars Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Matthew Morrison, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Rodrigo Santoro, Ben Falcone and Joe Manganiello.
The film is due to be released in cinemas in South Africa on the 15th June 2012, so keep a look out for it and I will definitely do a review after I have seen it!
