Inspired by the New York Times best-seller of the same name, this film explores the challenges of bringing a baby into the world. The film looks at the surprising, exciting and scary journey of having a baby through the eyes of five very different but interconnected couples. As someone who had a little person arrive not that long ago, the stories probably made a bit more sense to me than they would have at a time when the phrase 'eating for two' just sounded like a great excuse for more cake.
To be honest this movie is one of a string of ensemble rom-com films of recent years, most of which have been varying levels of awful, but this is actually a little more than you might be expecting. Sure it's clichéd at times, but the mix of storylines means that you don't get too caught up in any one relationship/scenario, and the cast is full of friendly faces doing what they do best.
All of the parents out there - both the person with the colourful language and the target of said colourful language - will probably be able to relate to lots of things in this movie, and you'll have a great time reminiscing in the car on the way home. For everyone else, this is still a movie that's worth seeing for the good cast and the light-hearted popcorn munching entertainment.
