WhatToExpectWhenYoureExpecting ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): whole-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: PG-13       Length: 110 minutes

Age Appropriate for: 14+. Cursing, sexual language and innuendo, some gross-out gags and talk, and a slap and some other brief violence here and there. Not too mature for a romantic comedy but may not interest tweens.

Mega-popular pregnancy self-help book ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’ gets the ensemble treatment with this romantic comedy adaptation, a predictable parade of pandering pregnancy plots.

By Roxana Hadadi

How do director Kirk Jones and writers Shauna Cross and Heather Hach turn the seminal pregnancy guide “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” into a romantic comedy full of stars like Jennifer Lopez and Chris Rock? With too many subplots and too few laughs.
