Now that the initial media blitz over their daughter Blue Ivy has begun to subside, the reality of parenthood should be sinking in for Mr. and Mrs. Carter (a.k.a., Jay-Z and Beyonce). These realities may include sleepless nights, lactation 101, and perhaps even poop that squirts.
But as much of an adjustment as parenthood is, it also offers plenty of comedy - as evidenced by this week's list. These funny parenting films are reminders that coaching little league, carrying around a copy of Dr. Spock and making homemade applesauce are all part of the wondrous adventure of having kids - even when you're a celebrity.
Hopefully, the latest pair of famous parents can find some time to sit down and enjoy one of the films in this week’s round-up and have a good laugh. What movies would you recommend?
"Parenthood" (1989): “I’m waiting for her head to spin around.” – Gil Buckman
"Mr. Mom" (1983): “Honey if you call and I'm not home, I'll be at the gym or the gun club.” – Jack Butler
"Baby Boom" (1987): “I can't have a baby because I have a 12:30 lunch meeting!” – J.C. Wiatt
"Raising Arizona" (1987): “Well... it ain't ‘Ozzie and Harriet.’” – H.I. McDonnough
"Knocked Up" (2007): “If it grows from the ground, it's probably okay.” – Ben’s Dad
