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.
