Our advance screening of What to Expect When You're Expecting

Laura writes about last night's sneak peek of the latest Hollywood movie release.

Last night, Today’s Parent and and a theatre-full of lucky winners attended the exclusive advance screening of What to Expect When You’re Expecting, a new Hollywood flick based on the bestselling book by Heidi Murkoff.

There was a great turnout with a mix of couples on a date night and expectant moms. If the laughter that filled the theatre was any indication, this movie will be a big hit with audiences once it opens in wide release.

Starring a slew of Hollywood A-listers — from Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz to Chris Rock and Dennis Quaid — this new movie offers a hilariously honest look at pregnancy from both a female and male perspective. Keep an eye out for scene-stealers Elizabeth Banks and her sidekick Rebel Wilson, as expectant mom Wendy and her work colleague Janice.

A big thank you to Alliance Films and the Varsity Cinemas for organizing this event.
