Friday Night Date Night: What to Expect When You're Expecting

Friday Night Date Night is a feature on my blog that showcases movie reviews (mostly movies that were adapted from books). Hopefully some of these reviews will help you decide what to watch on your date night or a night of relaxing at home.
 What to Expect When You're Expecting
I have to admit that I actually have read some parts of What to Expect When You're Expecting.  No I do not have children, but since I live with my sister, brother-in-law and niece the book has been laying around the house and I've checked it out a couple of times.  I have not read enough of the book to tell you if it is similar to the movie so I can only tell you my thoughts on the movie.
I wasn't sure what to expect (haha...I didn't even realize the pun until I reread this sentence) when seeing this movie.  One of my besties saw it and loved it (disclaimer:  she was pregnant at the time).  I on the other-hand liked the movie, but wasn't really sure what to think of it.  I like that it seemed to be completely honest and show not only the amazing things that go along with being pregnant, but also the not so great things.  I think there is a stigma that everyone should have this glowing, wonderful pregnancy and people are afraid they will be judged if they are not completely in love with being pregnant.  They movie showed that it is not always beautiful and fun. 
Another unexpected thing I really enjoyed about the movie was Anna Kendrick and Chase Crawford.  They had really good chemistry and while their storyline was heartbreaking, I still enjoyed them.  Rebel Wilson was hilarious as usual and completely out there, but it worked well with her character.  Plus the Dad's Club was amazingly awesome! 
Overall it was an good, movie but I felt the story lines were a bit pieced out.  It almost reminded me of New Year's Eve or Valentine's Day (directed by Garry Marshall) know where there are a lot of known celebrities who each have a very small part in an eclectically thrown together film.  I'm not yet sure if I like this style or not.  I didn't enjoy Valentine's Day, but I did like New Year's Eve and this the jury is still out.
