Oh, goodness, mommas, they're adapting this oh-so-helpful book into a romantic comedy.

Personally, I expect it'll star Katherine Heigl or Sandra Bullock, and every 15 minutes she'll just scream at the camera: EVERYTHING YOU DO WILL RUIN YOUR BABY, then hold up some variety of fruit to demonstrate how large the baby is.

Doctors aren't out to kill you or your children. Childbirth isn't inherently safe. Science is actually smarter than your intuition. Lighten up. Use sunscreen.

Oh no. I may have to keep myself away from theaters for this one (at least until we have bond money to get me out of jail for screaming at the scream like a crazy lady)

Come watch the movie in GA. People in Sandy Springs are FAMOUS for yelling at the movie in the theatres. I won't go myself, I get mad at commentary when I paid money to watch a movie.

Have you seen the Pregnancy for Dummies movie on netflix? It's pretty bad. The part that annoyed me the most was the "circumcision is a choice. Of course even if you choose to do it you may be nervous, but don't worry it's a completely safe procedure and your baby will be fine."

me, dh and 2 boys = our family (oh and a cat...who is also a male...lol)

Honestly, they're adapting the WEIRDEST things these days. What's next, Saxon Maths 2: The Movie? A soaring epic based on a Walmart flyer?

If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

I know! That article cited they made a successful movie out of "He's just not that into you" so they are trying this one....

Maybe an exciting cookbook movie to come soon!

I'm going to make fun of this movie, but I'll probably end up seeing it.

Well, we all did pay to watch 4 babies wander around for an hour an a half, so I bet (and hope!) Kittens: The Kittening will be next summer's blockbuster.

I would totally watch Kittens but not What to Expect. I'd rather watch a movie adaptation of a thesaurus, though, than that crap.
