Video Movie Trailer For The Switch Starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman 2010-03-17 17:06:46

Movie Preview: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman in The Switch

Remember the movie formerly known as The Baster, starring Jennifer Aniston as a woman who decides to inseminate herself and Jason Bateman as her best friend? It's now known as The Switch, which I think is an infinitely better title. Know what else is a nice surprise? The plot, which involves Wally (Bateman) switching his sperm for the original donor's, is not nearly as weird/bad as it sounds on paper.

Turns out that Wally makes the exchange while rip-roaring drunk, and doesn't remember what he did — or if he even did it. Fast forward to seven years later, and he meets Cassie (Aniston) again with her son, who is the spitting image of him. The humor in the script is evident even in this short preview (I giggled a few times). The cast looks great here too; Bateman is taking a break from playing a jerk, Aniston is giving us the kind of comedy she does best, and the supporting players — Jeff Goldblum, Juliette Lewis, Patrick Wilson, and a freakishly adorable little boy — all look like they round out the movie solidly.
