James Cameron memorably imparted a distasteful analogy when he was doing the press rounds for “Avatar” and journalists would ask what the filmmaker-cum-megalomaniac’s next project would be. “You don't ask a woman if she wants to have more kids when she's crowning.” snapped the tousled-haired millionaire. As unpleasant as the image of Jim Cameron splayed on a doctor’s table waiting for his gold-plated “baby” to drop from his loins undoubtedly is, it’s an appropriate metaphor for another trend that’s crowning for real: bland self-help non-fiction books nonsensically translated into fiction films. To wit: “He’s Just Not That Into You”, “Marley & Me”, “Yes Man” and now the stupidest one yet, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”, a fictional adaptation of the perennially popular series of books penned by Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel that guide men and women who are -- duh -- expecting to bring a child into the world in the near future.
