The Back-Up Plan

(Movie review)

SYPNOSIS: A romantic comedy centered on a woman who conceives twins through artificial insemination, only to meet the man of her dreams on the very same day. – source

Director: Alan Poul
Starring: Jennifer Lopez, Alex O’Loughlin

Frankly, I had no idea what this film is about until I paid genuine attention to the poster. And….. yeah, the plot is really just that simple. With a guy present on the poster as well, anyone could’ve guessed the storyline. There are a couple of funny moments but not enough to make it a decent film. There’s nothing much to say here because the movie is really typical.

I thought Jennifer Lopez did quite well for this film. It was probably her greatest performance yet. She’s hilarious in the movie and I think she actually had to gain weight for some of the scenes in the second half of the film.

Verdict: An absolute chick flick with only one or two significantly funny scenes. Don’t waste your time or money watching this show unless you really have nothing better to do.

Favourite scene: (Spoiler begins here) The scene where one of the single pregnant mum group’s members is giving birth. The delivery seems like some kind of an evil ritual (Spoiler ends here).

Rating: 1.5 / 5

Date for the show: Hitomi Ng
