the film followed 5 couples whose lives were turned upside down by the challenges of parenthood. from knowing each other, to some accidental and some planned pregnancies, to giving birth and taking care of the children. Jules was a fitness guru and Evan a dance show star. they were eager to start a family together and was surprised with the demands of pregnancy. Wendy was an author who was desperate for a child of her own, her husband Gary struggled with his competitive father, who was expecting a twins with his new wife, Skyler. Holly was a photography prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child, her husband Alex wasn't quite sure and entered a support group to deal with his issues. Rosie and Marco were owners of food trucks, they had been rivals since the very first day of their job, but after getting to know each other and sleeping together, they found themselves face to face with an unexpected pregnancy as well.
we looked forward to the film because it had so many huge stars in it. we were surprised to feel disappointed with its outcome. the film felt rushed, focusing from one couple to another. sometimes trying to be hilarious, sometimes trying to get us to cry. everything was a gigantic mess. half way through the film, we were already frustrated and was more than happy to throw it behind us.
