The Back Up Plan

Just in case you forgot how charming Jennifer Lopez is, there’s now an entire romantic comedy to remind you. The Back Up Plan is like Knocked Up for the over-30 set. Instead of stoned friends, there’s sassy boutique pet store employees. Instead of a one-night stand, there’s an artificial insemination. And instead of a college drop-out who dreams of creating a tits-based internet site, there’s a college drop out who’s living the dream of creating a successful farmer’s market cheese business, and going to night school. In several scenes like something out of a 1930’s musical, Zoe meets Stan-and they just can’t seem to shake each other. They eat hot dogs, have romantic private-garden pizza feasts, and everything is going swimmingly-until a weekend up at Stan’s farm, where Zoe reveals that just before they met, she was artificially inseminated, and is going to have a baby. What ensues is a film about getting everything you want, in the way you least expected-and confronting how our own insecurities stand in the way of our happiness. Like Knocked Up, there’s unexpected depth, some laughs, some panic attacks, and a couple you’re rooting for against all odds.
