THE MOST UNEXPECTED COMEDY EVER CONCEIVED.
Kassie Larson (Jennifer Aniston) decides to have a baby on her own, but one drunken evening the donor’s sperm is accidentally ruined and Kassie’s best friend (Jason Bateman) replaces it with his own… without her knowing it. That has to be one of the most contrived plot summaries I have ever written. Combined with the fact that Bateman always finds a reason not to tell Aniston about the switch until a final climactic moment near the end, it makes for a pretty dumb movie. Romcom fans will however appreciate some amusing dialogue and a very pleasant cast.
