If you glanced quickly at the posters for the upcoming movie, What To Expect When You’re Expecting, you might be led to thinking that the whole of Hollywood is pregnant… Are they? Check out the posters of Brooklyn Decker, Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks Jennifer Lopez and Anna Kendrick… they each look beautiful with a bump.
Based on the hit book, the movie follows the ups and downs of four expectant couples. The four women are played by Cameron Diaz, as a Jillian Michaels-type TV host who gets pregnant; Anna Kendrick, as a food truck operator who conceives after a one night stand; Brooklyn Decker, as a trophy-wife type; and Elizabeth Banks, as the owner of a baby boutique. Jennifer Lopez also appears in the movie, as a woman who adopts from abroad.
When I first saw the pic of Cam, I jumped, because naturally I jumped to conclusions :) But the bumps seriously look real. The story reminds me of a Knocked Up vibe with Katherine Heigl but I love the idea of the narrative of following different women in the story of pregnancy. I think it is the making of a great rom-com, and will really appeal to its target audience.
The movie will be out in May and I’m really looking forward to seeing it… I kind of do wish all the leading ladies were pregnant, but I guess that would be kind of bizarre.
