Have a Movie Marathon with These Films About Pregnancy

Monday, May 12th, 2014

It’s no secret that pregnancy (like most things) is nothing like the movies. But if your due date’s approaching and you’re looking to commiserate, cue up these films.

The Back-up Plan (2010): The story of a sperm donation and unexpected love intertwine in this rom-com starring Jennifer Lopez.

Father of the Bride, Part II (1995): You probably watched this classic while growing up, but nothing can beat a good Steve Martin movie, especially one featuring the hilarious wedding planner (turned baby shower organizer!) Franck. Plus, how many people do you know who were pregnant at the same time as their mother?!

Friends with Kids (2011): As you’d have guessed from its title, this modern take on parenting follows the story of two pals who decide to procreate. Fans of SNL and Bridesmaids will be happy to see that Maya Rudolph plays a supporting role. This is a film your hubs will enjoy, too (can you say Megan Fox?).

Knocked Up (2007): Katherine Heigl’s pregnancy gets a little up close and personal, but if you’re a fan of This is 40, you’ll enjoy watching what some consider its semi-prequel. Heads up: It’s a bit raunchy!

The Switch (2010): This funny film with a similar plotline to The Back-Up Plan features our other favorite Jennifer (Aniston) and chronicles the story of sperm donating gone wrong–or ultimately, right!

What to Expect When You’re Expecting (2012): This movie tells the story of series of couples all expecting at the same time–think, He’s Just Not That Into You, but about pregnancy. Oh, and they all happen to be played by actors and actresses you know and love: Cameron Diaz, JLo, Matthew Morrison, Anna Kendrick, Chace Crawford, and so on.
