Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman and Patrick Wilson in The Switch trailer

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

I remember reading about THE SWITCH with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman starring and at the time, I thought it felt like a standard romantic comedy.  Even watching the first part of the trailer, it felt like this was something we’ve seen a thousand times before.  But then it made a big switch and started to feel more like Jason Bateman’s film than Jennifer Aniston and therefore, it felt like a much better film.  It kind of feels like a cross between ROXANNE and BIG DADDY.  My fear is that it gets too awkward for its own good.  The film stars Aniston as a woman that decides to get pregnant from a turkey baster and Bateman as the guy that switches the sperm of Patrick Wilson for his own, thus fathering a child with her that she doesn’t know about.

Josh Gordon and Will Speck are directing from a script by Allan Loeb.  Jeff Goldblum, Juliette Lewis and Scott Elrod also star.  THE SWITCH hits theaters on August 20th.
