Movieline did a round-up of the most scathing reviews of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” and number two on the list was mine.
A couple of the others:
“The best seller What To Expect When You’re Expecting has been around for 28 years, making the book much newer than most of the jokes in this all-star movie.” — Farran Smith Nehme, NY Post
“‘End of day, family’s all that matters,’ says [Dennis] Quaid, never mind that his character’s abusive fathering made his son into an obese neurotic. ‘Kids—that’s all we really leave behind.’ If that’s true, and if millions of years of biological, intellectual, and technological evolution must yield to shallow-field American family values, the least we can do is cop to our shoddy legacy. Let’s start with this disdainful, demoralizing, grimly unfunny bastard of a film.” — Eric Hynes, The Village Voice
