Now, I'm not a parent myself, but I'm kind of baby obsessed anyway. A few of my friends have kids and I'm an aunt to a one-year old girl, so I'm definitely surrouned by the little ones. However, I started reading reviews of the movie and it kind of lessened my enthusiasm. It was still a movie I wanted to see, but did I want to pay 8 to 10 bucks to go see it?
At any rate, I hung with two girlfriends of mine this past Monday night (one friend had her birthday on Saturday and mine was Wednesday) and we decided that seeing a movie would be fun...except there really wasn't much out that I hadn't seen already, so we headed to see What To Expect When You're Expecting!
Overall, I enjoyed the film. It was cute at parts, funny at others...but it's not something I would tell people to run out and go see pronto, as it was slightly long and dragged in moments for me. Let's break it down a bit more for you though-
Anna Kendrick (I'm going to use the actors' names and not the characters' names throughout this review!!) was one of my favorite people in the film. For one thing, I'm already a fan of her acting and it was fun to see her in something a little different. She was the youngest pregnant lady in the bunch as well, so perhaps I just related to her getting pregnant without planning it.
