A romantic comedy with maturity to its humour and romance

"The Switch" is like a romantic comedy, except better because it gives you everything you want: romance and comedy with a story and characters. They buck the trend to make the romantic elements absurd and instead shower us with comedy and very little sap.

Jennifer Aniston is just a cute girl that the audience can accept as a character, but Jason Bateman is everything you want in a leading man. Very good looking but not in a typical way, plays up neurotic with aplomb, and is hilarious all the way through. We easily fall in love with him from beginning to end.

"The Switch" actually gives us a story, one where our hero has to evolve and mature as he realizes and understands the value that Aniston and her son bring to his life. Again, Jason Bateman is the kind of man that we have been waiting for in romantic comedies, because he actually has the talent to portray all of that, and do it with comedy. A romantic comedy that is cute, funny, romantic, mature and where you actually welcome the story line - what more could you ask for?

Quite Enjoyable

Unmarried Cassie (Aniston) wants to have a baby and has a Sperm Party with donor Roland (Wilson) in tow. The deed gets done, but the specified cup gets switched by Wally (Bateman), who gets so drunk he doesn't remember doing it. Neurotic Wally has a thing for Cassie, but does nothing about it. Seven years later when he meets Cassie's son, Sebastian (Robinson), Wally sees many of his mannerisms in the kid. This should be interesting. Funny too.

First of all, there is nothing uncomfortable in here. But, it is Sebastian who will get to you. The banter between Cassie and Wally is good, but when Sebastian comes on the scene, you know you have to see this through. Believe me, the kid will get to you. The lines (and not entirely easy ones) that Thomas Robinson has to say as Sebastian are unbelievable in that they are flawless and to the point. Amazing for a 6-yr old going on 30.

There is comedy but it comes between Wally and Sebastian and it's quite enjoyable. You find yourself wishing there were more scenes with Wally and Sebastian. These scenes are the hooks and why you stay. There is some adult humor too, but it's old hat and kind of expected.

Nice to see Jason Bateman getting a lead and this should be a stepping stone to other leads. The chemistry between Bateman and Aniston was good for the characters they portrayed. Aniston is still Rachel (character from the Friends TV show) and seems most comfortable with that role so there is nothing new with her in here. Hey, we like Rachel. What's not to like? She had a chance to branch out when she did DERAILED, a good drama with with Clive Owen, but that was just a one-time thing apparently. Too bad, as she was good in that one. Jeff Goldblum performed well, as always, but still has that Gary Shandling look on his face like he is going to burst out laughing hysterically at any moment. All the cast performed to expectations and that was very good.

This does play out like a made-for-TV movie, but the chemistry between Bateman and Robinson makes it all worthwhile. This was their show.

Violence: No. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: No.

Enjoyable and definitely not as bad as it may appear...

So I saw The Switch over this weekend and I must say I expected this to be a complete failure and it surprised me to not be that. Matter of fact, the movie stands out pretty well through Aniston's filmography. The story is not complicated, runs smooth and gets your attention. The story revolves around Wally Mars (Jason Bateman) a middle-age single guy who has a hard-time finding his match and Kassie Larson (Jennifer Aniston), his best-friend. At Kassie's semen-party, Wally gets drunk and switches the donator's sperm with his own without realizing and forgetting completely about what happened to next day. After seven years of being separated by distance Kassie movies back to her town and of course, she starts to talk again to her "best-friend". Problems appear only when Wally sees that Kassie's kid is acting pretty much similar like him so he remembers what he did and decides to tell Kassie the truth. Of course, this story has it's cliches and I'm the most bored person on the earth by cliches but this movie is a little bit different. It's not that funny, it has it's funny moments which were handled well but the movie it-self is more of a romance than a comedy so I enjoyed it more than others who expected a million laughs from it.

As far as the acting, this is definitely Aniston's best movie this year and I liked her attitude in this even though she portrays almost the same character but it's such an improvement from The Bounty Hunter. Jason Bateman was very good, hilarious at points as usual and actually approached a more serious tone for this role. The rest was good and I really was not bothered by anything at all. The characters were lovely and I was surprised for them to not look over-acted and exaggerated.

The cinematography, editing were pretty much normal, nothing to be mentioned and the score was as usual, typical for a romantic movie. With all these I want to say that this movie is not BAD and I don't understand people who love to bash this movie just for it's cliches and stuff like that. This movie is a simple good time for a boring afternoon. It's far from being great but it's such a better choice than most of the wack stuff that studios put out.
