Ok, really? Another movie about artificial insemination? Good Lord. First we've got Baby Mama, then we've got The Back-Up Plan, and now we've got this "gem," The Switch. The flick primarily follows Kassie Larson (Jennifer Aniston), her best friend, Wally (Jason Bateman), and the donor, if you will, Roland (Patrick Wilson) in the wake of her decision to have a child as a single woman at the age of 40.
Let me sum this movie up for you in two sentences. Ready? You've got the super independent woman enjoying a half-fulfilled life with her loyal, albeit neurotic best friend, and a hot, athletic, all around great guy who is more than willing to help the woman have a child. Years later, the independent woman has a little boy who may or may not be the neurotic best friend's son due to a party mishap, and the athletic baby-daddy wants to be the real daddy. There you go. That's the whole movie. To be honest, I didn't ruin it for you because pretty much the whole film is in the trailer.
The Switch is, I guess, is a romantic comedy. It's definitely funny at times, but I have to get this off my chest...methinks
Rachel Jennifer Aniston has been typecast. She seems to play the same character every time, and it's a bit stale at this point. The little boy, Sebastian, played by Thomas Robinson, showed up all his co-stars and was the one highlight of the film. He has a knack for delivering deadpan humour that really got the audience going.
Other than that, I have to be honest, The Switch is just a bit boring. It's almost like it never really got going. You can predict the ending about five minutes in, which kind of ruins it. I give this film a 2.5 out of 5, and I recommend it as a DVD rental. It's not horrible, it's just really, really not original at all. Below is the trailer for The Switch.
Have you seen The Switch? What did you think?
