What to Expect When You’re Expecting (A Movie Critique From Real Sister Girls)

Posted May 18, 2012 by felicialavette in Entertainment

A few intelligent Sister Girls were able to attend a pre-screening of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”. It is a funny movie, but you should not pay $10 or more to see this movie. This is definitely what we call a “Saturday Morning Cleaning Special”. You know, those movies you watch on Saturdays in between cleaning your bedroom and doing laundry. Of course the book is shown within the first few scenes of the movie. The movie incorporates modern culture; like “Dancing With The Stars”, “The Biggest Loser”, and so on… and so on.

It is a lighthearted attempt to give expecting moms and dads a glimpse of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. The gist of the movie is that even when you think you are prepared for a baby, the fact is that you can never be. Pregnancy and Parenting are unpredictable, like most of life. The movie involves funny stories of fatherhood, motherhood, and the desire to be good parents.

Honestly the acting was mediocre. Not every character or story line is believable. Some scenes are hard to watch because of the lack of chemistry between the actors and forced conversation. The roles played by Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, and Chris Rock wasn’t a stretch of their acting abilities at all. Cameron Diaz’s role, takes a cheap-shot at the shows “Dancing With The Stars” and “Biggest Loser”. Her character “Jewels” is supposed to be a pregnant Jillian Michaels. And of course, they had to show an example of an American couple traveling to Africa to adopt an African baby.

To sum it up, this is not a movie you should pay to see.

This movie critique was brought to you by two real Sister Girls.
