The Back-Up Plan
Fall in love, get married, have a baby. Not necessarily in that order.
When Zoe tires of looking for Mr. Right, she decides to have a baby on her own. But on the day she's artificially inseminated, she meets Stan, who seems to be just who she's been searching for all her life. Now, Zoe has to figure out how to make her two life's dreams fit with each other.
It's not my fault. I was just in the room at the time.
While you're watching this you'll need a back-up plan as well.
- Tell your partner (as he/she is probably making you watch this) that tonight's dinner is giving you explosive diarrhoea (while we all know that's J-Lo's fault)
- Sprint to the bathroom where you've already placed an assortment of snacks, a laptop and a stack of DVD's with films that aren't as unbelievably horrid as this one.
- Be sure to fart loudly now and then so your partner doesn't get suspicious.
- Enjoy your evening.
Ten minutes in. Super awful. Considering death. Please send help.
Part of The December Project
This is not a good film. It's dumb, badly structured, unrealistic and the performances are over the top.
But for some reason I didn't hate it as much as I know I should.
I suppose it did have a few jokes that landed and I've seen Jennifer Lopez in more annoying performances.
But to be honest, I suspect I didn't mind it so much due to the fact that the film I watched directly before was even worse.
A romantic comedy, starring Jennifer Lopez and Alex O'Loughlin. Kate Angelo wrote the screenplay and Alan Poul directed it.
Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) has given up on finding the man of her dreams and decided to become a single mother and undergoes artificial insemination, but the same day she meets Stan (Alex O'Loughlin) when they both try to hail the same taxi. Somehow, they run into each other twice more and Stan convinces Zoe to go on a no-obligations date. The night she takes the pregnancy test, Stan takes her for a romantic dinner in a garden. Things don't turn out as well as planned when he spills the wine and a fire occurs. At the end of the night Stan…
best character was the disabled dog.
I'm pretty sure all Jennifer Lopez movies are the same.
Jennifer Lopez's charisma is the only bright spot of this generic rom-com about planned pregnancy. There is nothing to compensate for such an unoriginal plot, a bland leading man and a lack of charm. J. Lo deserves better.
I really need to rewatch this!!
Horrific Romcom drivil. JLo trying oh so hard to be relatable. Just. No.
I watched this.
A film in which J-Lo eats stew by scooping it up with dozens of slices of bread and spreads it around her face.
Alex O'Loughlin (???) co-stars.
Lo único bueno es que hay un niño que se comía tierra. Lo demás es caca.
I really struggled to finish watching this garbage.
What a hack job. It seems like they just copied scenes and moments from real romcoms and put together without any thought. Possibly because they mistakenly think everything is topsy-turvy with the zany idea of pregnancy before romance in a romcom.
Perhaps the lack of script could work if there was some sort of chemistry between the leads, or at least an amusing supporting cast. Jennifer Lopez is not an accomplished actress but the absolute lack of sparks with the no-name male lead is shocking. There is no moment in the movie where they connect in any believable way and it's just confusing that they supposedly keep falling for each other.
The only trace of emotional impact is the meta-comment…
If you are looking for a crappy movie, Jennifer Lopez won't disappoint you.
J-Lo gives to you always a satisfaction, better than a L'oreal mascara. Because you worth it.
I am convinced the poor guy's sanity hangs by a thread at times. Kermode is pretty much the reason I…
