No doubt, the What to Expect series was our go-to guide for everything from sleep (or lack thereof) to feeding (is there really a feeding order for those baby food jars?) to all of the confusion and joy of pregnancy and parenting. The movie, and its sub-head, “It’s too late to pull out now,” is hitting the big screen May 18. The combination of hormones, a dad’s “dudes” support group, and more, looks really, really funny (yes, it’s easy to laugh now!) about the adventures (and misadventures) of parenting! Check out the trailer:
Here’s a synopsis from the producers:
Inspired by the perennial New York Times bestseller of the same name, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” is a hilarious and heartfelt big screen comedy about five couples whose intertwined lives are turned upside down by the challenges of impending parenthood.
Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules and dance show star Evan find that their high-octane celebrity lives don’t stand a chance against the surprise demands of pregnancy. Baby-crazy author and advocate Wendy gets a taste of her own militant mommy advice when pregnancy hormones ravage her body; while Wendy’s husband, Gary, struggles not to be outdone by his competitive alpha-Dad, who’s expecting twins with his much younger trophy wife, Skyler. Photographer Holly is prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child, but her husband Alex isn’t so sure, and tries to quiet his panic by attending a “dudes” support group, where new fathers get to tell it like it really is. And rival food truck chefs Rosie and Marco’s surprise hook-up results in an unexpected quandary: what to do when your first child comes before your first date?
A kaleidoscopic comedy as universal as it is unpredictable, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” finds humor and uplift in all the unexpected trials and triumphs of welcoming a child into the world. The film stars Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Matthew Morrison, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Rodrigo Santoro, Ben Falcone and Joe Manganiello.
