'What to expect when you're expecting' DVD review

From the title you may think that 'What To Expect When You're Expecting' is a fact based DVD for expecting parents but that's far from the case!

'What To Expect When You're Expecting' is a story of 5 couples that have, one way or another, started on the road to parenthood.  The 5 couples come from all walks of life from TV show host (played by Cameron Diaz) to fast food outlet owner and the film follows their lives as they become turned upside down by the impending journey towards becoming parents.

With the film starring some big Hollywood names, the a fore mentioned Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez and Chris Rock I settled down to watch.

Although the 5 couples are all different the film cleverly entwines them all in some way although this at times made the film a little 'busy' and with so many peoples stories unraveling it could be a little confusing.  I did enjoy the film this said and Jennifer Lopez was really the star of the movie for me. Her tale of adopting a child from Ethiopia was played thoughtfully and brought tears to my eyes.  Don't get me wrong this is not a weepy film that will have to watching from behind your pile of tissues and in parts is actually quite funny but I have to say I don't think I would be rushing to watch it again.

An entertaining film to watch, probably more so if you are actually on the same journey but not one that will be winning an awards in my opinion.

'What To Expect When You're Expecting' is out to buy on DVD on 22nd October 2012 from all good retailers.
