THE SWITCH

Film fads aren’t get­ting any less strange, that much is cer­tain. The Switch is Miramax’s con­tri­bu­tion to the “ar­ti­fi­cial in­sem­i­na­tion” trend. Jen­nifer Anis­ton ( pic­tured) and Ja­son Bate­man play friends Kassie and Wally. Kassie keeps Wally at a dis­tance, while he loves her but won’t ad­mit it to him­self or any­body else. When she de­cides to have a baby us­ing a donor’s sperm, Wally drowns his sor­rows and in a mo­ment of ine­bri­ated, mis­guided af­fec­tion, switches his sperm with the donor’s. Seven years later, the proof of Wally’s drunken de­ci­sion is walk­ing and talk­ing and the con­se­quent hi­lar­ity bal­ances out the cold­ness of Anis­ton and Bate­man’s on- screen re­la­tion­ship.
