The Switch (♦♦♦½)

Kassie (Jennifer Aniston, Derailed) is still single and getting old, so she decides to have a child on her own. Wally (Jason Bateman, Juno) is Kassie’s best friend, forever in love with her but unable to tell her. Kassie tells Wally that she wants to get pregnant and starts searching for a sperm donor. She meets a good looking one in Roland (Patrick Wilson, Hard Candy), a married professor whose wife agrees to the donation. During Kassie’s impregnation party, Wally “hijacks” Roland’s sperm and switches it for his.

I have to say I liked this movie more than I expected. I enjoyed more the screen time shared by Jason Bateman and the kid than Aniston’s lines. I laughed out loud in several occasions and chuckled as well. There is good chemistry between Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston; he is so believable that I felt sorry for the guy having a hard time admitting that he was in love with his best friend.

It was overall a very pleasant movie experience.
