What to Expect When You're Expecting is a 2012 comedy-drama film directed by Kirk Jones and based on the best-selling book of the same name. The movie follows five couples and their journey through pregnancy and parenthood, with all the ups and downs that come along with it. Cameron Diaz stars as Jules, a fitness guru who unexpectedly finds herself pregnant after a one-night stand with Evan, played by Matthew Morrison. They decide to give a relationship a chance, but must navigate the challenges of balancing work and parenthood.
Meanwhile, Wendy (Elizabeth Banks) and Gary (Ben Falcone) struggle with infertility and explore the option of adoption. Their journey is complicated by Wendy's career as a pregnancy author and her constant comparisons to her glamorous colleague, Skyler (Brooklyn Decker).
Holly (Jennifer Lopez) and Alex (Rodrigo Santoro) are adopting a baby from Ethiopia, but their relationship is tested when Holly's desire for motherhood conflicts with Alex's career ambitions.
Finally, the older couple Ramsey (Dennis Quaid) and his much younger wife, Skyler, find they are expecting twins, throwing their already rocky marriage into further turmoil.
Amidst all the pregnancy drama, the film also explores the relationships between the couples, their friendships and their own insecurities about parenting and their roles as partners.
The film has its fair share of laughs, but also touches on more serious issues such as miscarriage, adoption, postpartum depression and the difficulties of balancing work and family.
Overall, What to Expect When You're Expecting is an entertaining and heartfelt look at the joys and struggles of parenthood from the perspectives of five very different couples.
