We were all babies once. So even if you don’t have any of your own, you can still have a good time watching the funny—and not so funny—moments that come with expanding our brood. Catch What to Expect When You’re Expecting, now available on DIRECTV, or one of the following titles we hand-picked just for you.

When Juno (Ellen Page) discovers she is pregnant after sleeping with her friend Bleeker (Michael Cera), she decides to find her unborn child a caring family who is willing to raise it as their own. Faced with making mature decisions, she has to confront emotions her normally quirky and insouciant nature belies. The growing-pains comedy also stars J.K. Simmons, Jennifer Garner, and Jason Bateman.

Knocked Up
A one-night stand turns into a real problem when Alison Scott (Katherine Heigl) finds out she’s pregnant. The father, Ben (Seth Rogen), is a slacker she barely knows, and the two quickly realize they have totally different priorities.

Raising Arizona
This Coen Brothers comedy follows H.I. McDonnough (Nicolas Cage), a career criminal who has been arrested way too many times, and Ed (Holly Hunter), the officer who takes his mug shots. After they fall in love, get married, and move to the Arizona desert, their world is shattered when they can’t have a baby. Their solution? To kidnap one of the quintuplets born from another Arizona couple. Now they have to raise little Junior as best they can, while running away from the law.

Away We Go
While Verona’s (Maya Rudolph) baby bump keeps growing, neither she nor her boyfriend, Burt (John Krasinski), knows what will become of them. They have no money, no jobs, and no home. After finding out Burt’s parents are moving overseas, the duo decides to go on a cross-country journey of their own to figure things out, visit a few cities, and meet some new and old faces along the way. With Maggie Gyllenhaal and Allison Janney.
