What to Expect When You're Expecting

This film tries to tell a funny, heartwarming story of several couples who are in the family way.

First, let me say, there are just too many babies to care about or keep track of -- and all the fathers are all trying to be stand-up comics, which is pretty annoying, followed by more dumb bonehead diaper jokes.

You can't blame the babies, they are always stars.

All others should take another look at The Three Stooges. 

Always expect the unexpected, except when you're viewing What to Expect When You're Expecting, a movie (in name only) based on a best-selling self-help book on pregnancy.

With many stars and many stories, it pretty much covers every cliché about pregnancy -- EVER! 

This "comedy" features multiple stories about couples who are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or are worried about being pregnant.

And for some inexplicable reason, it has a bunch of daddies who spew out Fight Club-type philosophy to an unsuspecting possibly soon-to-be father.

The movie may engage some female hormones, but for me, scissors down. 

The movie is the latest adaptation of a non-fiction advice guide for expectant mothers.

The picture tries to combine the book's lessons into the stories of five females dealing with the ins and outs of becoming a parent.

The problems I had with this comedy are: the flick has no standout character who is consistently funny, and the movie plays out like a long sitcom rather than a feature film.
