The Switch

I’ve been dying to watch this movie and I missed it when it was in the theater. The premise is about Cassie, played by Jennifer Aniston, a woman in her late 30s who has decided to become artificially inseminated. Her best friend Wally, played by Bateman completely disagrees with her decision. He tries to convince her not to do it, but she ignores his advice. She throws a ridiculous party for her insemination. In a weird twist of fate, Bateman gets drunk and switches the specimen with his own and blacks out and forgets he did it.
When Cassie learns she’s pregnant she moves away to be near her family. She loses touch with Wally but 7 years later she moves back and they reconnect. Now in this movie you absolutely have to ignore Jennifer Aniston’s character Cassie’s thick headedness. The fact that she doesn’t notice that her son is exactly like her best friend is a bit far fetched. Besides that though, the movie is so moving. You see Wally get to know his son Sebastian and realize that the boy is his. Watching Wally go through all of this growth and become attached to his son is so sweet. I won’t spoil it for anyone who wants to rent it, but I will say that it has a happy ending, yay! I was worried because sometimes movies throw a curveball and they end sadly. This one does not disappoint.
