Ever since this upcoming movie announced its debut, there have been a lot of news and early reviews from critics in the country. Let’s take a look at some early opinions on what they thought about the movie: What To Expect When You’re Expecting.
According to Lael Loewenstein, her initial opinion when it comes to the movie is: Helmer Kirk Jones (“Nanny McPhee”) does a solid job negotiating the material and managing the few tonal shifts when an occasional dark moment emerges, miscarriage and a perilous delivery among them. Editor Michael Berenbaum, too, deploys smart visual cues to keep the momentum going.
On a different note, Marshall Fine from Hollywood and Fine gave his personal take on the movie: What you’ve got is a series of sketches, variations on a theme, none of them too long, none of them in any way original – and very little of it amusing. Jones doesn’t need to think, just to mix and match, hopping from couple to couple without pausing for character development or story (since the plotline is already baked in).
