The Back-Up Plan (2010)
MovieAddict - wrote on 01/25/12

Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) is finally getting her life in order. She left a lucrative, high-profile job to open a Manhattan pet store and she lives in a nice apartment with her disabled but darling Boston terrier. 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, private picnic at a lovely community garden. (Those who enjoy slapstick will love that scene where they almost arson the place) but still Zoe continues to keep her pregnancy a secret afraid that she will scare him off. How will she be able to tell Stan and what will his reaction be? Somehow I don`t think that blurting out you are pregnant with some stranger’s child after having a night of fantastic sex is the way to go but that’s just me.
