|She actually got in the tub to relax in early labor, you never see that in hollywood! Then it showed the doctor acting like an ass and he took him outside and told him he needed to be nicer to her because this was her experience, I was like, who wrote this?! It was surprisingly sensitive for a mainstream movie.|
|I'll be honest... I shaved all of the way through pregnancy. I think I even did at the very beginning of labor.|
We were DYING at the fights between her sister and BIL. THEY FIGHT JUST LIKE US, especially when he was sniping to her abotu how she worries about everything, and one of her worries was vaxes! (not to mention the Spiderman 3 fight.....we had, um, the same exchange over Spiderman 3) It was so embarrassing but I figure HEY, we must be pretty ok if they're making fun of this couple.....we must not be the only ones. Plus the husband responds to EVERYTHING like my BF would. (lets stuff roll of his back and keeps going, thinks I'm nuts, etc. :-) )
My favorite part?
|1-month-old twins who were born two months premature had been slathered with cream cheese and jelly for a birth scene. (Screen Actors Guild guidelines do cover condiment usage. Grape, red currant, and cherry jelly can be used to simulate birth-related fluids. Strawberry, raspberry, and K-Y jellies are a no-no, for fear of allergic reactions.)|
My original goal was to find a woman who would allow me to shoot the baby coming out and match it to the real shot. I wanted to use the same sheets and the same bed. We came close to getting it done, but the State of California said, 'You can't do it because the unborn child would need a worker's permit.' Of course, I couldn't get that until it was born!"
Afterward my husband was like, 'I thought pregnant women didn't bother with any pubic hair, um, upkeep, since you can't see it anymore' and I had to laugh. I was like, it's probably fake, plus a lot of women go to salons to get waxed.
I haven't seen the movie, but I was just reading this about the guidelines and working restrictions for infants in California.

My DP said...is that really what it looks like when you give birth. And I said yes it does...so he said, OMG it stretches a lot Poor you
Gotta love him
Memz, with my and mommy of born 01/17/10 and 3
And the argument between them over the fantasy baseball/Spiderman3/I wanna spend time w/ you/I need my sanity is SOOOO me & my dh!
I did like a LOT how he remarked later in the movie that his biggest problem is that his wife loves him SO MUCH she just wants him around all the time.
I nudged DH and said, "Duh!"
And the pregnant sex was HYSTERICAL. "It's all National Geographic!" That is totally how I feel. And wearing a bra during the act?
I do think they could have done without the gratuitous nudity in the movies the guys watch and I wish the f-bomb hadn't been so prevalent, but otherwise the movie was very funny and much of the time rather accurate.

Some of my friends did the whole "is that REALLY necessary?" bit and were countered with "that is the CLEANEST birth you will EVER see". They had nothing to say to that. I had no problems with it. If anything, it was tame. But I was surprised at how totally and absolutely hairless she was. :

I give it a thumbs up. It is definitely a step in the right direction in terms of depicting birth in a mainstream movie.
Overall, I loved the movie. Lots of vulgar language, but really funny! And I loved the natural aspects like no vax, cosleep, natural birth. The fight with the doc was so accurate and hopefully this brings these issues into the mainstream.
wow...did they miss sex ed in 6th grade? i thought that if you had an abortion they had to explain where the baby is... i'm sorry i just can't wrap my head around the idea that 20 year old does not know where babies come from...i mean a 10 year old yeah but 20?
Funny movie though. Seems like a movie that will be funnier with repeated watchings.
