The Back-Up Plan Reviews
The Back-Up Plan's blunt honesty about the messiness of pregnancy is refreshing. It's a shame that the movie couldn't find a similarly refreshing way to tell its uninspired love story.
Lopez works visibly hard to keep things light, while O'Loughlin's flat performance suggests that he's either deeply uncomfortable or just struggling to hide his Australian accent.
Jennifer Lopez has never looked better. That's about all she does here, is look better. She is talented and deserves more than this bird-brained plot about characters who have no relationship to life as it is lived by, you know, actual people.
Lopez, appearing in her first rom-com since Monster-in-Law five years ago, is still a likable screen presence who throws herself into the movie's slapstick sequences with unwarranted enthusiasm.
