Watch: 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' Trailer Reveals It's The 'New Year's Eve' Of Pregnancy Movies

Sew up your vaginas and get a vasectomy because having a baby sucks!  The trailer has landed for birth control movie of 2012, “What To Expect When You’re Expecting.” If “We Need To Talk About Kevin” didn’t scare you off having children, this should do the trick.

Based on the best-selling book every would be parent gets when they get pregnant, it’s been spun into a multi-character/multi-thread “New Year’s Eve“/”Valentine’s Day“-esque tale about getting knocked up and it appears nobody is happy. It makes Elizabeth Banks hysterical, Dennis Quaid embarassed and Brooklyn Decker…well, she stays hot. Cameron Diaz, Anna Kendrick, Chris Rock, Matthew Morrison, Rodrigo Santoro, Chace Crawford, Jennifer Lopez, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Tom Lennon and Rob Huebel all round out the cast on this one. Was Jason Sudeikis not available to help fill out the dude cast?

Anyway, watch how much fun it is to be pregnant below. The movie opens on May 11, 2012.

Why Not ? I'll give it a shot.


The only thing this has in common with Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve is that it has a large cast. And who needs Sudekis when you've got Tom Lennon AND Chris Rock, anyway? I know this will be good. The tone in the trailer already sets it apart from the aformentioned multi-cast movies.


I don't know this looks more fun than new year's eve and yeah the "dudes" part looks like it's gonna be pretty funny.


Am i the only one who thought the movie should have been about the moronic guys, taking care of their kids?
