20. The Back-Up Plan (2010)

The creation of life is a fascinating and painstaking subject that often is represented in film. Sometimes, realistically, other times, humorously, and even more infrequently, terrifying. These films are the best in that they focus on the events leading to pregnancy, the 9 months of gestation, and ultimately, the birth & care of the child. Others focus on the act of a woman forming a bond with her child, or having to sever that bond.
