The Back-Up Plan

The Back-Up Plan - DVD (2010)

The movie is still playing in the background as I type this up, so it is a fresh review, hot off the keyboard.

Saturday night sucked yet again on NZ TV - who needs pretty woman for the 100th time, it's starting to look very dated and is not every girls dream (even if younger Richard Gere is).

I like Jennifer Lopez - she is certainly beautiful and comes across as a sweet girl, but she is not really a girl next door, unless you live in the Hamptons or in a huuuge mansion somewhere on the beach.   In this movie she plays a single woman who decides to have a donor sperm baby, and on the day she is inseminated she meets the man of her dreams.

A man, who is a simple goat farmer making cheese to sell at the farmers market, who lives on a HHHUUUUUUUGE beautiful farm, with an incredible barn.  He's cute, and has a six pack, but has no chemistry.

She apparently is a pet shop owner , but doesn't seem to actually work, and has a lovely but expensive looking apartment.  A dream come true.

Anyway, this little rom-com didn't do it for me, it seemed lacking in anything special, in any magic.  So for that it is a 2/5.
