You will laugh and you might cry, but you definitely will not be able to turn it off before the happily ever after.

What to Expect When You’re Expecting is a true delight. More than I expected and everything I hoped it would be. Based on the pregnancy guidebook of the same name (as much as Mean Girls is ‘based on’ Queen Bees and Wannabes), What to Expect When You’re Expecting follows five couples who unexpectedly find themselves expecting: Over

It’s also an update of various dystopian social critiques, from the dark rites-of-passage in Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” and Logan’s Run; to the futuristic bloodsports of Death Race 2000 and Rollerball; to its closest comparison in
