Preview: What to Expect When You're Expecting (2012)


An ensemble comedy about newly-expecting mothers and fathers.

  • Poster: C-


The split screen effect has never been well used and this design won't change that impression.

  • Trailer: C+ / C


Some of the bits are quite funny, but much of the trailer is filled with baseline humor and expected comic delivery. Whether the film turns out better than the preview leads one to believe remains to be seen.

Everything that was modestly funny in the original trailer has been excised from this second one making it look all the more unoriginal and laughable.
