Amanda had a wide eyed, innocent appeal here, her teen movies are one of my guilty pleasures.
Just a sweet fun movie that you don't necessarily need to be 15 to enjoy!

Can't believe I actually sat through this. It was on my "no way" list,… MoreCan't believe I actually sat through this. It was on my "no way" list, but I do like some of the cast, so decided to watch it on TV. Definitely wouldn't have paid money to see it.
Having said that, not as bad as I expected, (but believe me, my expectations were very low, so that's not actually saying a lot).
As the title suggests, it's all about pregnancy, so if you're not obsessed with that and babies, probably not the movie for you either.
The cast are good, and that's probably what saves this. I found the young one night stand storyline totally unbelievable, the others not so bad, but obviously the topic bores me to death and I can't relate to these women. I can imagine mums would probably love this and have a good laugh. I don't think anyone else would!
Overall if you like the cast, it's *maybe* okay for a free watch on TV if you've nothing else to watch.
This is my second time watching this. I really want to like it more… MoreThis is my second time watching this. I really want to like it more than I do.
The lighting and scenes are pretty, it really is beautifully shot.
What lets it down is the script and the story. It is just not enough. And Jude Law is absolutely horrible in this. People blame Norah Jones as being the weak link who can't carry the film, but really she's fine. Understated, but I think the character is meant to be. Jude, on the other hand, is hammy and can't look at him without thinking he's sleazy and wouldn't actually want to see him get together with Norah's character (this of course could be due to his well known personal issues), but he does actually look grotty here.
The supporting characters have more to work with and actually did care about their stories.
It's a shame as the potential and cast (Jude aside) actually was there in this one, but it just doesn't quite work as a whole.
Kind of lame. A few funny bits, and Anna Faris ,as always , is worth… MoreKind of lame. A few funny bits, and Anna Faris ,as always , is worth watching, but Stepbrothers did this better.
Rewatched this 2014. Actually, I quite liked it, more than the first time.
Yes, it's silly, but I laughed quite a few times and I really do like the cast. Also had a surprisingly good soundtrack and just love Anna's blonde and black hair.
The plot is a bit recycled, but for something silly to watch at home, this is quite decent.
Ended up switching this off 40 minutes in. Miley just wasn't all that… MoreEnded up switching this off 40 minutes in. Miley just wasn't all that convincing here, (and I don't even hate her - true, I am not a fan of her music, but I was well prepared to give her a chance in a movie), and the other problem was the story is pretty bland and boring. I don't honestly think she had a lot to work with. I also really didn't like Liam Hemsworth. I know he is her real life boyfriend, but I don't think he has the star quality to be a romantic lead in a movie, and I think they made Miley look plain here too when actually she is quite a pretty girl usually.
I really don't tend to get into Nicholas Sparks's stories. I liked A Walk to Remember, but that seems to have been my limit with it.
Update 2014. Somehow I found myself sitting through this one again. Someone raved to me about how good it was, so I wondered if I missed something and caught it on tv. Actually with lowered expectations, it wasn't as painful as I remember, and yes, actually quite sad if you sit through till the end.
Still not saying I loved it, but original review was probably a bit harsh.
It's exactly what you think it will be. No better or worse than any… MoreIt's exactly what you think it will be. No better or worse than any other straight to dvd horror movie.
Felt like watching something creepy with a few scares and this delivers.
I think this movie has been unfairly panned. While it's not a masterpiece, it does make sense and, honestly, do you usually rent an unheard of horror movie for the great acting?
As it happens, cast is fine. Ashley Green is a decent actress, got to admit, she and the boyfriend are both so pretty it does feel a bit like an advert at first, but again, that's typical in this genre. Tom Felton is pretty good as well.
End credits are very nice to look at also.
I certainly wouldn't advise anyone to run out and purchase this, but if it happened to be on TV, I don't think it's a total waste of an hour and a bit. (Not all that long either at under 80 minutes).
