The Back-up Plan

Fall in love.* Get married. Have a baby. *Not necessarily in that order.


The Back-up Plan
A young woman can't find a suitable man to father her child, so she has herself artificially inseminated. Immediately thereafter, she meets a charming man and is smitten... they have a troublesome relationship until her water breaks, whereupon she rushes to him for help. The critics were left wondering why Lopez chose this as a comeback movie.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThe Back-up Plan doesn't deserve comparison with sitcoms. It plays like an unendurable TV commercial about beautiful people with great lifestyles and not a thought in their empty little heads.
