WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING wasn’t what was expected at all
Anthology movies have gotten a bad rap thanks to some clunkers like VALENTINE’S DAY and the upcoming NEW YEAR’S EVE (which our reviewer didn’t like at all and is at 6% on Rotten Tomatoes right now). When WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING was first announced, it sounded like an assured failure. Imagine VALENTINE’S DAY meeting HE’S JUST NOT THAT IN TO YOU and then throw in parenting stereotypes and pregnancy joes; it sounded like an nightmare!
But as the project progressed, more and more talented and smart people started joining the film. Elizabeth Banks, hilarious. Rob Huebbel, love him. Rodrigo Santoro, yum! And slowly but surely, WHAT TO EXPECT sounded like it could maybe not be a disaster.
And now the first trailer has debuted and it looks surprisingly funny! It’s more in the vein of MEAN GIRLS than I originally expected, and that’s definitely a good thing.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING will hit theaters on May 11, 2012.
