The Back-Up Plan (12A)

The mystery of Jennifer Lopez: how can someone with such a beautiful face be quite so unappealing as a presence?
Every role she touches just withers and dies. In this non-com she's a New York pet-shop owner who decides that instead of waiting around for Mr Right she'll have a baby by IV. On the day of impregnation she meets (groan) Mr Right himself (Alex O'Loughlin), an upstate cheese farmer whose eligibility as a father is never in much doubt. Kate Angelo's screenplay deals with pregnancy and parenthood issues and sounds like it's written by someone who's never heard an actual joke in her life. If a man is spotted watching this film you can guarantee he will be either a) heavily medicated or b) a hostage.
