    Such a fun and entertaining film! The cast is awesome and is has some of the funniest scenes i've ever scene! Diaz, Lopez and Banks are awesome and the stories create a very interesting ensemble especially for people who know about pregnancies or want to get an idea on the matter! People tend to be very harsh on such films but this definitely deserves your time!

    Although the performance of Jennifer Lopez is not among the best ones of her career and there is some swearing too much, this movie is still a healthy comedy to enjoy with friends to joke about it and its crazy plot.

    Someday Hollywood will think of women as more than fallopian tubes in heels; until then, we're stuck with this kind of project.

    Its overview of the baby experience is obscured by a family-values lens – no single/same-sex parents - resulting in an awful ensemble comedy to complete that "Valentine's Day" / "New Year's Eve" box-set, complete with sexist clichés.

    The awfulness of What to Expect When You're Expecting, an ugly brew of guide book, reality television and romantic comedy, is of course, entirely to be expected.
