Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Today I present for you consideration a romantic comedy called What To Expect When You're Expecting (2012, Rated PG-13, Available on DVD or Netflix Screaming).
As you might expect from the title, this movie has lots of pregnancies and babies. It also has lots of "stars": Elizabeth Banks, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock . . . okay that's enough.
Some of the pregnancies and relationships between mommies and daddies go well, and some are more difficult. The women all look way too beautiful to be real. It's a bunch of pregnancy and relationship stereotypes.
This movie is mildly amusing. It's a good one for me to watch now because I'm sick and don't have much of an attention span. It distracted me, but I felt no need to laugh. I got a warm fuzzy feeling very briefly when babies were born, though, in general, I hate dumb, unrealistic labor and delivery scenes. If you just want a movie that's simple and doesn't make you think too much, then this'll do the job.
What To Expect When You're Expecting earns The Janie Junebug Seal of Okay.
I have seen two DVDs that I loved. I don't want to write about them till I feel a bit better because I can't do them justice right now.
Infinities of love,
