I love Chris Rock, so I like the scenes when the guys would get together, always laughed for those. He never really paid attention to that little boy. There was a comment towards the end, I can't remember exactly what it was, but it was something like, we complain about it but we wouldn't have it any other way, or something to that extent....
To be completely honest, I did not enjoy the movie at all. I saw it in theaters and left feeling depressed - mostly because I was so taken by surprise by the loss. If I had known, I probably would have chosen not to see the movie or at least wait until after Jude is born because watching it while pregnant after a loss was really hard on me emotionally.
I think, if I gave it another chance, I might enjoy it more now that it wouldn't be such a surprise but I don't think I can get over being bugged by how unrealistic some parts related to the loss seemed (like how quickly she seemed to be okay)...
I did really enjoy the "break down" scene where the one woman goes up on stage and decides to talk about the miserable realities behind pregnancy. I found it really hard to be amused, though, while I was bawling my eyes out because of the other woman's story.
My favorite part was when Elizabeth Banks goes into labor and asks for drugs and her husband was like I thought you said no drugs. She yells at him get me the juice! Or when she talks about all the crapy parts of being pregnancy that some people don't have or say.
I really liked how she goes from being this idealistic baby store owner writing childrens books about breastfeeding, to this totally realistic, pregnancy really sucks type person, while still being happy about having a baby. I loved how she broke down on stage and was like, this sucks! lol.
I also thought it was hilarious how when they pulled the baby out after the c-section, the baby was totally pristine. DH and I were like *** that's not what it is going to look like at all. Plus the baby looked to be about 4 months old already lol.
The step mom was hilarious hugging the step son and the wife is like ok thats enough lol.
Then of course the dudes group. I also loved the part when J lo and her dh went and adopted their baby it was so sweet ( I almost cried). There were many parts of the movie that were funny and some parts that were a little far fetched but all in all a good flick.
I thought it was cute, loved all the already mentioned scenes, thought Cameron Diaz character was annoying, she was just doing the same acting she ALWAYS does. Chris Rock and the Children's store owner were my favs
DH and I definitely loved the baby convention scene. (: whole movie in general was good for us. I did cry but I'm pretty sure that I was expecting that. M/C scene got hard with us because it was ironically similar to what happened when we lost our baby as well only difference is that we we're first married and almost ended our marriage. But we obviously pulled it together and became stronger . So while that scene did hit a tender spot, it did not ruin the movie for us at all.
