The Switch : Review

About: Kassie Larson (Jennifer Aniston) decides she wants to have a baby. Despite the objections of her neurotic best friend Wally Mars (Jason Bateman), she chooses to do it alone, with the services of handsome and charming sperm donor Roland (Patrick Wilson). Wally has always had feelings for Kassie, but as his friend (Jeff Goldblum) points out, he missed his chance and she put him in the "friend zone". Kassie organizes an "insemination party", where Roland produces the sperm in the bathroom, and leaves the cup there. Wally uses the bathroom and sees the cup. Drunk, and not liking the idea of Kassie being inseminated with this sperm, he plays with the cup, and accidentally spills it into the sink. Panicking, he replaces the sperm with his own. Seven years later, Kassie returns to New York along with precocious-but-neurotic son Sebastian (Thomas Robinson). Wally forms a bond with this loveable mini-version of himself, but the bad news is that Roland is in the picture too. In the end, Wally reveals to Kassie that Sebastian is his son, along with his true feelings for her. At first she is angry, and she does not want to see him again, but Sebastian misses him; finally she breaks up with Roland. Wally proposes to her, and she accepts.

Review: The Switch is a classic romantic comedy staring Jennifer Aniston . The reason I watched it was because of her actually and i'm glad because her performance was really nice. There were some really funny scenes, with Kassie's son, he is exactly the same with Wally, “like father, like son”! My favorite scene is when Wally says to his son that hypochondriac is someone that thinks he has diseases he doesn't have, so the boy says “Oh, I think I have that” ! This movie is just ok, the actors are good, the story is kinda funny, but that is all there is. There is nothing more to it, it isn't a must watch, but also not something that you should avoid. For me it is a 5.5/10.
