Strengths: Acting performances (especially Thomas Robinson as Sebastian), believable chemistry between Aniston & Bateman, could relate to Bateman's character, good comedic and dramatic moments, story well-told, good soundtrack

Weaknesses: Predictable storyline that offers no surprises

Verdict: Not a must-see, but worth watching. I enjoyed it mostly because of the characte... read more

I sincerely liked, solely for one reason, the movie proposed something and fulfiled (something rare nowadays in romantic comedies), it was funny, cute, light, and of intelligence break, showing such how the world nowadays is accelerated and we are always leaving the essence aside, forgetting the small details of life and when we wake up the time got through.

We know from the first moment that Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman will wind up together – because if Hollywood wants us to believe anything, it’s this: unless one of them is gay, a man and woman can never be anything but friends. Ever. The Switch tries to offer us something new, a different shade and texture into the romantic comedy formula, but it quickly turns trite and relies upon tired... read more

"Aniston is likable as always and Bateman might have turned in the best performance I've seen from him. Oh and that kid is so damn cute. Too bad the cinematography is crap. I know it's a comedy but it was difficult to watch."

"Outro filme que assisti sem nenhuma expectativa e curti. Principalmente pelo personagem do Jason Bateman, muito bem trabalhado e também pelo menininho Sebastian, muito bem interpretado. Final clichezão. Ah e sem falar na história dele ter trocado o sêmen do doador pelo dele e ter esquecido. Meio surreal isso, mas tirando isso, gostei bastante da história."

An average movie

“I thought this movie was just so embarassing... I mean, I have a weak spot for romantic comedies but this was just plain average. In the same year, they managed to release 2 rom-coms dealing with artificial insemination and both were just terribly uninspired. At least, with 'The Back-Up', I enjoyed the chemistry between the two leads and, right from the start, they knew what was going on. Here, you just had this terribly annoying misunderstanding/lie trick strechted out forever... Once again, I felt so bad for Jennifer Anniston. I mean, she seems to be quite talented but she always ends up playing this kind of character in such boring movies. Justin Bateman also played his typical character but, at least, he made me laugh a couple of times. Eventually, I above all enjoyed Jeff Goldblum who” read more

2012 Movie Diary - April (53 movies items)

"Okay, let's think about this... A romance revolving around sperm donation, and released in the same year as The Back-Up Plan, which is kind of about artificial insemination (but that was better than this)... Firstly though, this cast was fantastic! Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman (who I'm a little infatuated with), Patrick Wilson (registered hottie), Jeff Goldblum and Juliette Lewis. "

"Katsottu: 30.4.2012 Voisi kai sen vapun paremminkin viettää? Meillä katsottiin vappuna tämä, ja minä nukahdin kesken kaiken. Ei tuntunut ainakaan siltä, että olisin jäänyt mistään paitsi, vaikka avovaimo elokuvaa jälkikäteen hyväksi kehuikin. Ei nämä romanttiset komediat vaan ole miesten juttu. Silti näitä joutuu kerta toisensa jälkeen katsomaan."
