Among the 10 stars prepping for parenthood: Chris Rock, Elizabeth Banks and Anna Kendrick stand-out . Kendrick is earnest while Rock and Banks score the funniest moments.
This movie is definitely NOT what I was expecting. With the book being a virtual bible for the soon-to-push, what we get (with one unexpected turn) is a very shallow script that could have drawn from a wealth of rich material. What a letdown.
Not that it matters. This movie has a built-in audience of soon-to-be and recent parents. Yes- there are some laughs but I expected better.
