...but just as good, if not better, to wait and watch in the comfort of your own home. PROS-1)Really honest about fears and anxieties of unconventional situation 2) Decent acting for the most part, 3)Nice subplot with Linda Lavin and Tom Bosley.4)great best friend,especially bed scene. CONS1) Single mothers group a little over the top.2)Unrealistic 'prettiness'. I was more convinced the lead was pregnant during scene with no makeup and chicken in her hair.3)Too obviously a vehicle for Lopez's shape and looks. 4)Toooooo much predictability; I always expect some in this type of movie,but hoped for a little more imagination. Better than Bounty Hunter& not nearly as good as Date Night.Again,does not need theatre viewing.

HOWEVER, I stress that if you are asking about spending money,I still say so-so: this will be just as good on dvd. Personal view was improved at 2nd time around because I really saw how good Ms.Lopez's acting was IN THIS.She usually annoys me...it may have just come natural from having recently had a baby,nevertheless,give her a chance..she is pure and believable,both with her pregnancy reactions and with her relationship. I also plain appreciated the honesty and realness of this Zoe and Stan together. There is some pretty smart,maybe experienced,dialogue here. I think there was definitely some fresh material. UP UNTIL the wedding and going to the hospital...they really lost me there with silly,unbelievable material ie:stopping at the market...WHAT?...,all the heartfelt talking during labor...WHAT?...just a few things like that. Maybe still pay matinee price,but do not pay full evening.Again,lots better than Bounty Hunter, but a far cry from Date Night,that was worth paying for.

I am including Gigli in this assessment. This was absolutely horrible. To be fair, I only saw the first hour or so. I actually left the movie and went and saw Date Night again. I love movies. I have not walked out on a movie in at least a decade. Seriiously...ugh.

I'm bummed to have spent full price evening money on this movie. Didn't really know what it wanted to be. There was some heart in various conversations between a few characters,and that is why i wont say out and out Dont Go. Nice vehicle for showing off good looks,etc...but I really recommend saving your money.

OK , if you like schlock. If you like to follow a silly story, watch bad acting, laugh at humor that's not funny, and look at gross stuff this movies is for you. Has to be one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
