Why did there have to be four couples in What to Expect When You’re Expecting? And I say couples instead of stories because the couples weren’t always together, so there were up to 8 possible stories in the film! How am I supposed to connect with any one story, or gain any insight from them, when they pop in and out of the limelight every few minutes? The truth is, the only story that even had the potential to be a really compelling story (for me) was the one with Anna Kendrick, and it got the least screen time!

Verdict: Forget It
