Tom Bosley: her beau Arthur
Anthony Anderson : the playground Dad

It’s been my experience that you are better off to lower your expectations when planning to take in a romantic comedy. Suspension of disbelief and a willingness to go along with a predictable plot are indispensable.

To be sure this one has some humorous moments but certainly not the three or four totally contrived situations: they look and feel out of place and serve to remind you how removed from reality this film is.

From what I could gather, women will like this movie more than men because there’s a lot of time devoted to different aspects of pregnancy including a rather protracted session of natural birth in the company of “loving companions”. The screeching and yelling is not for everyone.

for sexual content including references, some crude material and language.

In keeping with the current trend to include out takes along with the closing credits several are mildly amusing but hardly worth hanging around for.
