At the Movies - The Back-Up Plan

Of course I had to see The Back-Up Plan.  After all, it IS a chick flick - my kind of movie.

In The Back-Up Plan, Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) has her life together.  She is getting older and really wants kids, but there is no man in the picture.  So Zoe takes matters into her own hands, and goes to a sperm bank.  On the way home from her insemination appointment she meets Stan (Alex O'Loughlin).  He turns out to be someone she wants to date.  Unfortunately, just after their first official date, Zoe finds out she is pregnant.  So as Sam and Zoe start their life together, they must deal with all the trials and tribulations of a first pregnancy.

I am not usually a Lopez fan.  Maid in Manhattan - blech!  But The Plan was a funny movie.  I was definitely entertained.  There are some corny parts that I could have done without, that make me not super enthused about this one, but overal it was a decent flick.  Having said that, I would recommend it to my girl friends who enjoy a decent chick flick.

In short, it was cheese - but good cheese.

How about you - see any good movies lately?

Anyhoo - I agree, it's a funny, good cheese chick flick!

I turned it off. LITERALLY!
It was just too much watching JLo be such a wishy washy bitch to this guy, who for NO REASON was fawning over her. Just too over the top for me :(
