What to expect when you're expecting (2012)

There are two bad ideas that cripple this movie even before it starts.

1. Adapting a pregnancy manual to a narrative film.

2. Have the narrative film based on Rob Marshal's bland anthology movies (Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve), populate its cast with equally underwritten characters and non-sequitur arcs.

The result: a comedy only funny if you have the habit of laughing even at the flattest jokes.
