When Brett stumbled across two tickets to an advanced screening of The Switch on craigslist, he was on the phone and had us hooked up in minutes for the evening showing. With not a lot of time to spare, we programed the Garmin and headed over to Troy to pick up our $5 tickets...and ended up promptly in the 'hood. Like if Boyz in the Hood met 8 Mile and they have a baby. And then, meanwhile ATL and New Jack City met and had a baby. And by some miracle those two babies met and they had a baby - this would be where we ended up. After Brett walked up to a street gang with cash in his hand asking about craigslist tickets, we realized we were on the wrong street! We're lucky we didn't accidentally buy crack.

The Switch, rated PG-13, stars Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, but it's the bit players that make this movie. The storyline revolves around Aniston's character decided to have a baby. Rather than use the eligible sperm of her BFF Bateman, she goes with a charming donor played by Patrick Wilson. Bateman's character gets drunk at Aniston's "insemination party" (and just what kind of gift do you buy for that?) and he spills the donor sperm, replacing it with his own.
The Switch is from the folks who did Little Miss Sunshine and Juno so if you were like us and loved those two, you'll probably go for this lighter comedy. This cute little chick flick is perfect for a first date or movie night with the girls...we foresee plenty of female audiences headed to the theaters this weekend for it's opening. We'll give three pairs of shoes/out of five on a power line in the ghetto.
Here's the trailer:
