The Back-up Plan (2010)
Critic Consensus: Jennifer Lopez is as appealing as ever, but The Back-Up Plan smothers its star with unrelatable characters and a predictable plot.

Critic Reviews for The Back-up Plan
Just as in sitcoms, every conflict and resolution often takes place here within the very same scene.
Saunters along as if all concerned had decided that imagination and flair were either unnecessary or impossible.
A romcom that can't be called "formulaic" without insulting formulas everywhere.
If this is a comeback, let's hope J-Lo's got something else up her sleeve.
Audience Reviews for The Back-up Plan
Lopez's back-up plan should have been acting lessons. Lopez's performance was wooden and unconvincing. O'Loughlin was only marginally better. The script is nearly devoid of adult emotional response or innovation, almost like a Hallmark film. It's mildly distracting if you have nothing else to do while folding laundry at home but otherwise, the film is pretty useless.
The only reason I ended up watching this was because it was the only thing on Showtime. I'm actually thought it was fun and cute. Alex O'Loughlin is such a babe.. too bad his costar was Jennifer Lopez.
Was much better than I expected. Actually one of my favourite chick flicks and I never thought I'd say that about this film until the ending. The ending was quite funny and left me with a smile on my face. It also helps that Alex O'Loughlin is absolutely gorgeous too look at it and that body is amazing.
