The Switch Trailer
Like all relationships. There is give and take. So, when I chose to see “The Expendables” last week. I knew I was due to see a “Chick flick”. When my better half had the flick pick in her court. I knew it was going to be “The Switch”. “Two tickets for the 7:30 showing. Please.”
The film starts 7 years earlier in New York. Where we find Kassie (Jennifer Aniston) and Wally (Jason Bateman) best of friends. Kassie desires to have a baby by artificial insemination. Wally is trying to convince her not to. Stating great cons. But, never confessing his love for her. The best con. Kassie is going through with it. Despite Wally’s objections. She finds herself a donor who matches all the qualities she desires. And has a insemination party. (Don’t ask, Very bizarre). While party is in full swing. Wally gets hammered and stumbles into the restroom. Where Roland’s (Patrick Wilson) sperm is stored. And of course things go wrong. Wally accidentally dumps the fluid down the drain. So, like any rational drunken male would do. He filled the cup with his own seed. The next morning Wally is unaware of his actions. And months pass and Kassie finds herself pregnant. She decides NY is not a place to raise a child. So, she decides to move back to Minnesota.

Fast forward 7 years now. Kassie decides to move back to New York with her son Sebastian (Thomas Robinson). Kassie introduces Sebastian to Wally. And Wally notices some of his quarks in Sebastian. But, still has no idea what he had done 7 years earlier. All the while Kassie is beginning a relationship with Roland. The man who is suppose to be the father. As the time passes. Wally slowly remembers the events of that fateful night. I will leave it there. You figure the rest out. Or go see it.

I must admit. I enjoyed it. I thought both Wally and Sebastian stole the show. If it wasn’t for them. I may not have enjoyed it. It is not an over the top romantic film. Subtle in that department. But, strong on emotions of a father son relationship. Which won me over. So, if your better half chooses this on your date night. Smile and know I give it a

Love Happens Trailer
Love happens is about a widower whose book about coping with loss turns him into a best-selling self-help guru. On a business trip to Seattle, he falls for a woman who attends one of his seminars, only to learn that he hasn’t yet truly confronted his wife’s passing. I like the actors in this film, but this a romantic comedy without enough comedy. I was expecting more from the story line but I was ultimately left with the feeling that I could take or leave this film.
I give this movie a WTF
