Storyline

Five couples' intertwined lives are turned upside down by the challenges of impending parenthood. Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules and dance show star Evan find that their high-octane celebrity lives don't stand a chance against the surprise demands of pregnancy. Baby-crazy author and advocate Wendy gets a taste of her own militant mommy advice when pregnancy hormones ravage her body; while Wendy's husband, Gary, struggles not to be outdone by his competitive alpha-Dad, who's expecting twins with his much younger trophy wife, Skyler. Photographer Holly is prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child, but her husband Alex isn't so sure, and tries to quiet his panic by attending a "dudes" support group, where new fathers get to tell it like it really is. And rival food truck chefs Rosie and Marco's surprise hook-up results in an unexpected quandary: what to do when your first child comes before your first date? Written by Lionsgate

Goofs

When Wendy was delivering her child through C-section, she was drowsy feeling like she's put to sleep. In reality, doctors give women a shot at the back so that they wouldn't feel the pain in the abdomen. See more »

Movie can't decide it it is a comedy or a drama!
21 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie cannot decide if it should be a comedy or a serious drama. For its entire 110 minutes, the movie goes back and forth between straight silly comedy to straight serious drama...it was very annoying. The book that it is "based" upon is a light-hearted upbeat book about being pregnant...the movie should have just stayed a comedy.

The characters in the film were all annoying...The Chase Crawford character was completely annoying and completely unnecessary. The Chris Rock character was the worst of the film...he played a street wise character who enjoyed hanging out with a bunch of yuppie dads...huh??? The Elizabeth Banks character was the only one that came close to being one that was likable.
