The Switch Reviews

Jeff Beck

This might have worked better as a television episode or a short film, but as a feature, it's merely another one of those overly-long films where the audience must wait around in silence for the same conclusion we've seen countless times.

A conventional yet entertaining romantic comedy...

The Baltic Times

Bateman and Aniston are fine but don't have any real chemistry together, whilst the direction is flat and rather uninteresting. It has the occasional good moment, but "The Switch" fails to push any buttons. Or, indeed, pull any switches.

despite a novel plot device, The Switch is a disappointingly formulaic film and at times quite soulless.

Film Journal International

A misjudged lightness of tone and a predictable structure neuter the neuroticism and strange maliciousness of this Jennifer Aniston/Jason Bateman rom-com.

Despite a strong cast and technical specs, The Switch remains another easily disposable entertainment built out of the rubble of a promising literary prospect.

You have to overlook a whole lot of guff in order to enjoy the slight but pleasurable entertainment of The Switch.

Salt Lake Tribune

Directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck find some heart and wit in the screenplay, and they draw a strong performance from Bateman, who?s funny and sympathetic as the lovelorn Wally.

I would describe this movie first as sweet, then as funny - though the funny is definitely present, either dry and sly, or big and farcical. It's definitely a movie worth checking out.

October 1, 2010

Another week, another Jennifer Aniston rom-com. This one's passable, but saddled with a problematic central plot device.

Allan Hunter
Daily Express

Aniston still has a winning way with a comic line although it is really Bateman who carries the film, yet even his understated performance is consistently upstaged by young Robinson.

As pleasant as a daylight stroll across Central Park in the summer.

Decent Films Guide

On some level, Wally is acting out on his deep feelings, and what he's doing to his "friend" is a violation of her dignity not far removed from rape.

Liverpool Echo

One of the main problems here is that there is zero chemistry between the two leads -- and we're not given any real reason to root for them to get together.

Let down by inconsistent characterisation and finally ending in gloopy sentimentality and silliness.

Aniston has wasted herself on some pretty thankless roles recently, but she is exactly right for this movie.

Little White Lies

It strains to portray a progressive modern woman, but Aniston's role is the weakest link.

There's an interesting story in there somewhere about nature and nurture, and the pros and cons of being clever or merely good-looking.

Despite winning turns by Lewis and an on-form Goldblum, the laughs are in short supply.

There's much to enjoy, if not quite enough to disguise the film's essential awkwardness in trying to cover too many bases.
