MOVIE REVIEW: THE BACK-UP PLAN (Alan Poul, 2010)

backup_plan_ver2

I felt sad that this supposed rom-rom was actually offensive to women and mothers. The main character played by Jennifer Lopez was a dimwit that didn’t learn anything from What to Expect When You’re Expecting (yes, she was seen reading the book in one scene).

Imagine a woman who desperately wanted a child so she opted for artificial insemination. After the procedure, she walked in a funny manner by squeezing both of her legs (to probably prevent the sperm from falling out of her vagina?). And then she came out of the clinic and danced under the rain. Where was the logic in that?

While pregnant, she dove into a dumpster to get back her security pillow. Oh, and she also jumped face first in a cab. I thought that she wanted to have a baby? Why was she not even taking good care of herself?

And please don’t get me started on all the poop jokes. Offensive, I tell you.
