Review

Our Score
Jennifer Aniston tops the bill of this romantic comedy as an unmarried 40-something whose biological clock is screaming "baby", but not "commitment". So she turns to goofy but willing sperm donor Patrick Wilson. Come basting night, Aniston's best friend (the borderline-neurotic Jason Bateman) drunkenly swaps his own sperm for Wilson's - but is way too sozzled to remember doing so. Until, that is, seven years later, when Aniston's child starts displaying distinctly Bateman-like characteristics. This is the underrated Bateman's film rather than the merely adequate Aniston's, and he is well supported by a quirky support cast that includes the terrific Jeff Goldblum and Juliette Lewis. You know within five minutes of the start exactly where The Switch is heading, but getting there is still a surprisingly entertaining journey.
