Pretty run of the mill

The Back up Plan is a pretty run of the mill, generic romantic comedy starring Jennifer Lopez. It's not all bad, don't get me wrong, it's just not like amazing or incredible. Let me just say from the get go, Melissa McCarthy was by far the best and funniest part of this entire film! Whenever she came on screen I busted out laughing, especially the birth scene. That scene was absolutely hilarious! The romance and chemistry between the two main lead characters was good, the intimate scenes between them were well done, and the scene previous to the sex scene where she orgasms without sex because of hormones is hilarious lol. I thought that was kinda clever. The problems come in when the film reaches about mid way through, it does drag a bit. The movie kind of slows down and gets a little boring. That's the movie's biggest flaw by far. And I would say the movie's biggest success is, like I somewhat mentioned earlier, Melissa McCarthy, she freaking slays in this movie. 6/10.

limited rom-com gets worst and worst

Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) is a successful single NYC gal and has given up finding the perfect man. She goes to have artificial insemination. Her friend harried mom Mona (Michaela Watkins) warns against it. Clive (Eric Christian Olsen) refuses to contribute. After insemination, she fights Stan (Alex O'Loughlin) for a cab. Carol (Melissa McCarthy) leads the single mom support group. She runs into Stan who is selling cheese at the farmer's market. Despite being pursued by muffin girl Olivia (Danneel Harris), Stan falls for Zoe. After being told about her pregnancy, Stan befriends a dad (Anthony Anderson) at the playground.

Lopez and O'Loughlin have limited chemistry and the story doesn't help. Lopez tries hard but she has to keep asking if he's leaving. It doesn't allow for the chemistry to build. There are some good comedic talents here. None of that can save this badly conceived movie.

Best Back-Up Plan is to View a Better Film.

The Back-Up Plan (2010): Dir: Alan Poul / Cast: Jennifer Lopez, Alex O'Loughlin, Michaela Watkins, Eric Christian Olsen, Danneel Harris: A perfect back-up plan is to avoid this film altogether and watch Date Night instead. It regards forced change as Jennifer Lopez becomes weary of her dating life and decides to have the sperm donated and inserted. Then comes the lamest romantic encounter in history as Lopez and Alex O'Loughlin end up in the same cab where they spat, then she ends up at Farmers Market where he sells cheese, then he stalks her at her pet store. They fall in love too and its enough to make a person upchuck in their shorts. Is there anything in this pitiful garbage that hasn't been done in every other romantic bullshit? Director Alan Poul doesn't seem to have any handle on the humour or the relationships because neither blend successfully here. Lopez has played many stupid roles in her career but this one ranks as one of her most nit-witted characters. She manages to crash her car into a tree because she gets starry eyed. Her back-up plan should be to seek therapy after playing someone this unsympathetic. O'Loughlin starts out as this guy who takes nothing serious to being this suddenly responsible guy when he realizes that Lopez is pregnant with twins. It is like a personality switch midway. Supporting roles are characters who act like total morons and show up when the plot conveniently needs them. Locations bear some invention particularly the cheese place but in the end the best back-up plan for this light weight mess is to abort it with lighter fluid and a match. Score: 2 / 10
