'The Switch'
(Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Patrick Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, et al / DVD / PG-13 / 2011 / LGF)

Overview: Jennifer Aniston stars alongside Jason Bateman in this offbeat comedy as Kassie, a smart, fun-loving single woman who, despite her neurotic best friend Wally’s (Bateman) objections, decides it’s time to have a baby – even if it means doing it herself…with a little help from a charming sperm donor (Patrick Wilson). But, unbeknownst to her, Kassie’s plans go awry because of a last-minute switch that isn’t discovered until seven years later…when Wally gets acquainted with Kassie’s cute – though slightly neurotic – son.

DVD Verdict: I took to review this DVD mainly for Jason Bateman. I love Bateman, he is a super funny guy. Jennifer Aniston is funny too, but she is pretty standard in this film.

Long story short: Aniston wants a baby, gets a donor, Bateman gets drunk at her pary and accidentally loses the "donation" and decides to replace it thus hijacking her pregnancy.

The highlights of this film are the the way Bateman interacts with people in general. He's super neurotic and not sure what to do in most situations. Things get more complicated when he realizes he's the father of Aniston's young son. Now that's where things get good, the interaction between Bateman and Thomas Robinson, who plays Aniston's son.

This kid was good, he was cute and funny and just delightful to watch work off Bateman. The kid is a collector of picture frames and when you learn the story behind it you'll get a fuzzy feeling in your heart.

Patrick Wilson is pretty good too as the original donor who wants to bond with the kid but doesn't know what to make of him. Overall it's a pleasent film. Give it a shot. [MK] This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
