The Back-Up Plan a nice movie.. my sister likes Zoe's bag.. and.. uhmm.. what else can i say? I can say that this movie is "Okay" for those who want to be relaxed. I like it but nothing really happened in the movie. This film is simply a "re-enactment" of a couple. JUST THAT. The story is okay, the performances are okay, the whole film is okay. okay, I'm done! =D

It's really too bad that Jennifer Lopez makes so many terrible movies. This had potential to be a good comedy. There were moments where I actually laughed out loud. However, the overall writing was pretty awful. I remember thinking a few times "Do people actually talk like that?" Also, the development of the relationship was so rushed that it was uncomfortable to watch at some points. Finally, Lopez is not really a great actress. She overacts a lot and when she doesn't know what to do with her character she does this weird voice thing that I can't explain. It comes out in all of her movies. It's a shame this movie had to suck. I really wish it could have been better.

Now, she is pursuing another important item on her "bucket list". She is going to have a child, if possible. Having not yet the man of her dreams, she is using her "back-up plan", which is artificial insemination. The irony here is that once our desperate heroine allows her physician to impregnate her with frozen sperm, she collides with Mr. Right (played by Aussie heartthrob) Alex O'Loughlin right outside her doctor's office the day of her procedure. They bump into each other repeatedly and he goes out of his way to romance her and capture her affections even planning an elegant, …

The Back-Up Plan is one that should be premiering on the ABC Family Channel or the Hallmark Channel. The acting between Jennifer Lopez and Alex O'Loughlin was cheap and forgetful. Character development by either actors was little to none. Now, I understand that Romantic Comedies are pretty predictable and a little cheesy in most cases. This one IS as predictable and as cheesy as J-Lo's previous movies. As far as Alex O'Loughlin role, hey you gotta start …
