The Back-Up Plan

The movie The Back-Up Plan felt like it was made for a friend. Years ago, a friend was desperate for a child and actually pursued the endeavor relentlessly thru several boyfriends. She already thought about having an insemination but it was too expensive for her. She ended up adopting a baby.

Anyway, back to the  movie The Back-Up Plan. Jennifer Lopez' character, Zoe, was desperate for a child but she was unmarried. Determined to have her wish, she got inseminated through a sperm bank. On the day of insemination, she accidentally met Alex O'Loughlin's character, Stan. By the way, O'Loughlin is definitely yummy. He took a liking of her and pursued her. Zoe was starting to fall in love with him but things got complicated as Stan learned of Zoe's pregnancy and seemed not to like children.

This movie is Jennifer Lopez' comeback movie. As always, JLo was gorgeous here (arghh..i'd love to have her abs) and she really can be funny. The plot is not something new but the movie gave some good laughs especially the natural childbirth scene. I never heard of the Australian actor, Alex O'Loughlin, but he definitely can light up the screen.

I actually like The Back-Up Plan more than Date Night of Steve Carell and Tina Fey which I watched last week.
