Well technically not my kid… “My kid ate a cigarette” seems to be but one of the brilliant lines in the latest Hollywood movie due to come out in May 2012, “What To Expect When You’re Expecting”. I wonder which Hollywood genius came up with this original name? :P (I don’t know why I am joking about it though, as that genius probably earns $2 million a year to come up with names like this and other originals like Hot Tub Time Machine, 2 Fast 2 Furious and Snakes on a Plane).
Anyway, it’s filled with an ensemble cast of the who’s who in Hollywood (much like previous celebrity orgies Valentine’s Day, Love Actually & New Years Eve) and even though this genre isn’t normally my cup of tea (because let’s face it, I’m a guy and my macho nature has instilled the love of action flicks into my DNA. Bring on classics like Top Gun, The Rock, ALIENS, Black Hawk Down, Gladiator, [insert any other war/action film here]), I think I will actually thoroughly enjoy this movie simply because I can sympathize with most of the characters.
Let’s take the opening sequence of the trailer where Elizabeth Banks’ character says to her husband “I’m sorry, all I wanna do is punch you in the face!” and her husband simply responds with a smile and gives her a thumbs up. I love it… plainly and simply, her husband has just demonstrated how to be the perfect partner during pregnancy (and I guess forever and ever till death do you part as well)… be supportive… NO MATTER WHAT!
I won’t spoil the trailer any more, watch it and hopefully you will get a laugh or a giggle like I did… My favourite bit is at the 0:58 second mark! Keep an eye out.
Until next time…
