BIG BABIES

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING (2012)
– 3 out of 5 stars

Jennifer Lopez in another pregancy-related film after The Back-up Plan. Oops. While that film had Alex O’Loughlin’s gratuitous abs, we are treated to Matthew Morrison and Joe Manganiello over here.

It’s much more hilarious here because those Daddy-Nannies are so weird. Super prams! And it’s so cool that they have a cool and hot friend in Manganiello – OMG I’M TOTALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO WATCHING HIM AND OTHER HOT MEN IN MAGIC MIKE!

The women add in a dash of reality – though some more than others. Just look at Elizabeth Banks and Brooklyn Decker. I’m not sure if anyone dares to walk in six-inch heels whilst pregnant though I guess supermodels belong to a completely different species.

Most relate-able would be the couple played by Anna Kendrick and Chace Crawford. They are so young and cute together! And it’s always good to see Chace Crawford outside of Gossip Girl – his role as Nate Archibald is practically a pretty vase in the series these days. He should stick to playing characters without trust funds, like in here, where he actually does more than just smile and make out with cougars.
