"A Look Back" will be another series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com will feature weekly. It's as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take "A Look Back" to the set of a newly released film. Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
Was Brooklyn Decker pregnant last year? Never mind, it was a false alarm. These old pictures are from July of 2011 in Atlanta, Ga. A very pregnant looking Decker was on location filming scenes for her newest film What to Expect When You're Expecting. The movie hits theaters all around the US today. From Rogerebert.com:
"What to Expect" is a cheerful comedy with just enough dark moments to create the illusion it's really about something. It toplines Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick and Brooklyn Decker as prospective mothers, and as three live births are intercut, Diaz wins the screaming contest as people shout "push! push!" at her. The girl's a trouper. Maybe we should be grateful that Lopez, in Ethiopia to meet her adoptive son, doesn't start screaming in sympathy.
But I'm being too snarky. This is a good-hearted movie with some winning performances, but it has so many characters (including a boys' club of new dads) that the plot nearly stalls with gridlock. It's clever but the stories are thin soup."
That was not quite the glowing review I was expecting and hoping for. Well I'll just have to pay my money to see if Mr. Ebert is wrong. (He rarely is in my opinion.) The movie also stars Dennis Quaid (pictured), Chace Crawford, Matthew Morrison, and the always funny Chris Rock. Check here for showtimes in your area.
