He's Just Not That Into You (the film adaptation) may have inspired a few gag reflexes in this blogger—but the movie was no doubt successful, opening at #1 at the box office.

Can a movie version of another sort of advice book be just as big a hit? EW reports that Lionsgate is adapting mega-bestseller What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

Like He's Just Not That Into You (and Valentine's Day and Love Actually), the story will be presented as a series of related vignettes.

I would not have predicted this adaptation, but movies about pregnant women—from Father of the Bride Part II to Knocked Up to Juno—are perennially popular.

What advice book will be next?
