The Switch

The most unexpected comedy ever conceived.


The Switch
An unmarried 40-year-old woman turns to a turkey baster in order to become pregnant. Seven years later, she reunites with her best friend, who has been living with a secret: he replaced her preferred sperm sample with his own, and forgot about it as he was drunk at the time. When he now remembers, how does he tell her ... or his son?

Tomatometer quote iconThe Switch has an interesting premise and a charming cast; unfortunately, it also has a trite script that hews too close to tired rom-com formulas.
