Considering I own the book and haven't cracked it yet...... I knew it wasn't a typical "move follows the book" because the book is all about advice and not a work of fiction. However, the cast in this movie and the movie topic propelled me to see it despite being 7 months pregnant and quite uncomfortable sitting in a movie theatre for nearly 2 hours.
My always doting, and loving, and overprotective soon to be daddy/husband went with me and he enjoyed it as much as I did! He even cried. I cried alot, but that was to be expected. It was SO AWESOME to see a pregnancy like mine portrayed in the movie, and not all were made up to look like something out of the Pregnant in Heels tv show. ( I hate that show).
Even if you're not pregnant or have a child yet, I think you should see it just for the sheer hilarity of it, but please be warned there are some sad parts that may resonate with women (miscarriage, near death experiences). Go, enjoy, have a laugh, be inspired! :)

I knew going into this movie it would be somewhat predictable but there were actually some suprises and tear jerker moments. There were many funny sequences where I laughed out loud.
If you have any interest in getting pregant, are currently pregnant, adopting, or already have kids you will find it an enjoyable 2 hours.

This was a great little romp around the feelings of having babies and included many different scenarios. Best of all it featured the transitions from "holey **** I'm going to be a parent" to the very real emotion of "Wow look at what we did!" and unlike a lot of chick flicks in didn't diminish Dad's role in all of it.

IT WAS MUCH BETTER THAN I ANTICIPATED. THE LADY WITH THE BREAST STORE AND HER ASSISTANT AT THE ABC CONVENTION STILL HAS ME LAUGHING. CHRIS ROCK AND HIS SON WAS TOO FUNNY. OVERALL I WOULD TELL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO GO SEE THIS MOVIE.

This movie has a lot of heart, a wonderful cast and by the time I walked out of the theatre I was crying and smiling at the same time. Very moving and funny, and very realistic. All the couples had great chemistry, and the whole movie just worked. Too many excellant performances so I don't have a stand out. Whether your pregnant or not, this movie is for you, but don't take my word for it, see it for yourselves.
