The Back-up Plan


The Back-up Plan is a quirky romantic comedy about Zoe (Jennifer Lopez), a woman in her 30’s who is desperate and dateless. Unable to find the man of her dreams and badly needing to become a mother, she decides to become artificially inseminated after an amusing knock back from her male friend.

As she finally fulfils her dream to become pregnant, she literally stumbles into the man of her dreams while leaving the fertility clinic and as they continue to bump each into other, their relationship blossoms.  Stan (Alex O'Louglin), her new partner is a successful farmer who specialises in cheese making and when he finds out that Zoe is pregnant, a conflict grows in the relationship as they both realise that parenthood is not an easy road.

In this predictable romantic comedy, it’s fairly obvious how it pans out but even though it uses one too many clichés, the movie is actually quite watchable and is the perfect antidote for a boring Saturday night. Lopez is perfect as Zoe and has some great scenes in the movie such as the scene where she is walking out from the clinic or when she is shovelling food into her face.

Lopez really captures the character as does O'Louglin to an extent as Stan. All in all, it's a fun movie that has laughs and heartbreaks along the way. Tom Bosley (Happy Days) even shows his head in this film as Zoe's future grandfather!

Video and Audio

On Blu-ray, the video quality is exceptionally sharp, thanks to the 1080p transfer with deep blacks, sharp images and vibrant colours. The audio track matches the video well with DTS-HD MA 5.1 Lossless with a good balance of sound.

Special Features

There's lots of fun special features presented on this release (well done Sony) from behind the scenes, bloopers, deleted scenes and the excellent movieIQ which allows you to connect to the internet for real-time information and background information. Very cool!

Special Features
movieIQ +sync and BD-Live connect you to real-time information on the cast, music, trivia and more while watching the movie!
Deleted Scenes
Belly Laughs: Making The Back-Up Plan

A predictable but fun movie which is worth seeing!
