The Switch

Short and Simple Review by WubsTheFadger

If not for Bateman and supporting actors Jeff Goldblum and Juliette Lewis, THE SWITCH would have been The One to Skip. Not because it's lousy, which it isn't, or because it's boring, which it's not. In fact, the premise has loads of potential, given how many women these days are opting to go parenthood alone. The problem with The Switch is that it's uninspired. Without Bateman to elevate many moments from corny to amusing, it would be formulaic at best and insufferable at worst.

Luckily for the audience, he's there with his natural delivery and impeccable timing, making most of the set-ups -- even the absurd ones -- believable. And humorous. When he decides to make that pivotal switch, we buy it. As for Aniston -- who is, after all, the film's star -- it has long been established that she's charming and funny. And she still is. But the charm is wearing thin, and the funny feels phoned in. We've seen her as this character many times now, ostensibly independent but needing rescuing, needing someone to love her to be once again complete.

Pros: Interesting story, Jason Bateman's performance, and some good humor

Cons: Some weak story moments, some corny heartfelt scenes, and some uninspired acting from Aniston

Funny Rom-Com

Manny's Movie Musings: Jennifer Aniston plays a single woman whose biological clock is ticking so loudly she decides to use a sperm donor to get pregnant. Jason Bateman, playing Aniston's best friend, is horrified at her choice, partly because he is subconsciously in love with her. During Aniston's get pregnant ceremony/party, Bateman gets wasted on alcohol and drugs and switches the donor's sperm for his own. Aniston moves away to have her baby; and 7 years later, she and her son move back into Bateman's city. The boy's personality is very much that of Bateman, who slowly realizes why that is; and now he has to decide if and when to tell Aniston of his discovery. My most memorable, movie moment of "The Switch" is the scene when Bateman decides to make the switch because of his drug/alcohol induced accident; and out of desperation, uses an image of Diane Sawyer to help him get his product out. "The Switch" is a typical, formulaic rom-com, meaning you'll get exactly what you think, including the ending. Still, it has its funny moments.

The Switch

It takes way too much time to get to the point and works more than enough on its characters but then this is no mere ordinary rom-com; its worth a try.
