April 1, 2011
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.
September 5, 2010
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.
September 2, 2010
Let down by inconsistent characterisation and finally ending in gloopy sentimentality and silliness.
September 2, 2010
It strains to portray a progressive modern woman, but Aniston's role is the weakest link.
September 2, 2010
There's an interesting story in there somewhere about nature and nurture, and the pros and cons of being clever or merely good-looking.
September 1, 2010
Despite winning turns by Lewis and an on-form Goldblum, the laughs are in short supply.
September 1, 2010
There's much to enjoy, if not quite enough to disguise the film's essential awkwardness in trying to cover too many bases.
September 1, 2010
One wonders how much more of these kinds of films Aniston can make.
September 1, 2010
This is exactly the kind of role that suits Jen down to the ground. As Kassie, she's dead funny, deeply watchable and hugely likeable. It's just a shame there's not more of her.

In The Switch, Bateman plays a not-so-romantic lead who sometimes makes you want to shake him. And still, he's never been so appealing.
August 24, 2010
Sorry tabloid readers. At no time does Jennifer 'Womb Watch' Aniston growl, "Take that, Brad."
August 20, 2010
There aren't enough surprises to justify the title, but The Switch produces sufficient light for a late-summer diversion.
August 20, 2010
Perverse gender politics are at play here in this insemination fantasy about a man hijacking a woman's uterus in a long play to win her heart.
August 20, 2010
The comedy itself suffers from awkward scheduling. Though this isn't its only wrinkle.
August 20, 2010
It's not a bad film, really, just sort of average. But Bateman is so good in it -- natural, funny, yet full of real emotion -- that you immediately want to see him again in a better film.
August 20, 2010
Aside from the fact that it's all too entirely predictable, The Switch is a pleasant enough end-of-the-summer time killer.
August 20, 2010
This New York-based comedy directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck distinguishes itself with three-dimensional characters and an engaging storyline.
August 20, 2010
Amiable fluff that takes its time learning how to walk, talk, and generally act like the kid-centric rom-com that it is.
August 20, 2010
Likable cast wasted in a dopey comedy. But hey, at least it has the first head-lice-removal instructional montage in romcom history.
