Much like She Just Not That Into You, What to Expect When You’re Expecting is more an advice book without a particular narrative, so you kind of know what to expect from a movie adaptation: a bunch of half-assed rom-com tropes shot in vignettes so that the audience can enjoy the women-be-shoppin’ jokes they came for without anyone working too hard on story. Basically, another Love Actually clone with Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez this time. But then Rob Huebel shows up with Thomas Lennon and Chris Rock to say, “I found my baby swimming in the toilet,” and it actually seemed funny for a few seconds. What to Expect When You’re Expecting starring Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez. Had a trailer that made me laugh. I’ll never forgive you for this, Huebel.
Opens in May.
