The Switch

This quirky yet predicable comedy stars Jennifer Aniston and Justin Bateman, two best friends who happen to become parents after a drunken night of partying and not in the traditional sort of sense. Aniston plays Kassie who is eager to have children of her own and unable to find the right man in her life, she decides to seek a sperm donor.

In celebration of finding a donor, Kassie holds a party to celebrate the upcoming insemination and invites the donor and his wife along. Unfortunately her best friend Wally (Bateman) comes who ends up replacing the sperm with his own. The movie then fast forwards several years and Kassie has her dream baby now a boy named Sebastian who has eerily similar traits to her friend.

As both friends have attempted to move on with their lives, we discover that Wally has always had a crush on his best friend and this is where the dilemma occurs, unleash his hidden feelings to Kassie in order for her to break up with her newly gotten boyfriend or forever remain quiet.

With a plot that is highly predictable, this is another strange romantic movie for Aniston who once again plays the straight women to Bateman's witty Wally. It's not a bad movie but it's nothing special, however there are some extremely amusing scenes throughout the movie that in essence turns this movie into an enjoyable film as opposed to another clichéd Aniston romantic comedy. Apart from Bateman who steals the show, there are some great appearances by Jeff Goldblum and Juliette Lewis who really add wit to this sometimes dry comedy.

With good video and audio quality, The Switch also contains a behind the scenes documentary, deleted scenes, alternate endings and my favourite, the Gag Reel and Outtakes. It's definitely worth a watch, although I'm not sure I would want it for my collection... maybe for a quiet night in?
