The Switch

The 2nd funniest sperm-donor comedy this year

The Switch

In a contest between 2010’s sperm-donor comedies, this Jennifer Aniston outing has the edge over J-lo’s The Back-Up Plan but falls some way short of The Kids Are All Right.

It also has the most outrageous premise, revolving around Jen’s best friend (Jason Bateman) drunkenly replacing her favoured man-goo with some of his own.

Josh Gordon and Will Speck’s film is on safer ground once the consequences of these (wrist) actions hit home, in the form of a neurotic infant who’s clearly a chip off the Bateman block.

Unlike Jason, alas, laughs are a long time coming.
