Pregnancy can be both a tricky and incredibly hilarious time in a woman’s life. Well, that’s what Hollywood would have you believe. To herald the instruction manual- turned-feature-film’s due date, character posters for WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING have been delivered by the studio. They feature stars Brooklyn Decker (Skyler), Cameron Diaz (Jules), Elizabeth Banks (Wendy), Jennifer Lopez (Holly), and Anna Kendrick (Rosie).
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
Inspired by the perennial New York Times bestseller of the same name, WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING is a hilarious and heartfelt big screen comedy about five couples whose 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?
The film also stars Chace Crawford, Matthew Morrison, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Rodrigo Santoro, Ben Falcone and Joe Manganiello. You can expect WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING to be delivered on – what else – Mother’s Day (May 11).
