Movie Summary:

Movie is about several couples who get pregnant and the different challenges they face. All the couples got pregnant around the same time and upon finding out the news were joyous, some more than others.

One of the couples ended up having a miscarriage and everything for them was practically over. One of the couples was recommended to join a dudes group so that he would get ready for their baby, after some persuasion, the husband went and was surprised at what he learned.

The husband eventually broke the number 1 rule of the group (don’t talk about what they walk about) and was kicked out. The rest of the couples were mostly good heading up to their delivery date, they al had their pregnancy related problems.

The delivery day finally came and each couple were enjoying the “joys of labour”, one couple had to do a C-section and after a slight scare everything turned out alright and they were all off into “the joys of raising children”.

The couple that had the miscarriage met up at the hospital and hang out with each other.


A funny movie, best part being when the dude’s group came into the sound of Biggie Smalls, I almost died, great to watch with kids older than 10 because younger kids might have nightmares.
