This week's reviewed movie is:
The Back-Up Plan




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



The Back-Up Plan has no style or wit, and gets cruder as it goes -- with doo-doo and P.P. jokes.

Hollywood failed to make this an interesting funny movie about pregnancy.

And it lacks anything new to make this film work as a romantic comedy -- it's got no spark.

I found it struggling throughout for some kind of convincing performances.

Attention all men: stay home -- your bladder will be gladder.

J-Lo hits a new low in this contrived rom/com about the perception of conception.

It's all about bodily fluids as over-dressed pet shop owner Zoe meets sustainable cheese maker Stan on the very day of her artificial insemination.

Will pregnancy get in the way of romance? With absolutely no chemistry between the stars, all I can say is, "Baby, I'm bored!"

The movie called The Back-Up Plan is a romantic comedy about pregnancy that just lacks a forceful, compelling romance and struggles to find a convincing performance from the cast of characters in this production.

It seems Hollywood is not open to making an interesting, funny film about child birth.

The plot of this adult romantic fantasy is not very effective, and it is so predictable it borders on boring.
