Give Us Your Opinion of This Movie!

My Review:

With Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman as co-stars you might think this is a chick-flick, but it’s really not.  The story here is really the man’s.  Wally has commitment issues, and ends up best friends with the woman he really loves, Kassie. Years go by and he’s not happy, and she moves on. She decides to have a child, and finds a suitable donor.  At the “getting pregnant” party (this part is pretty silly) Wally gets drunk and ends up “switching” the samples. He’s so drunk that he can’t remember what happened afterwards, and Kassie moves away. Cut to years later, Kassie moves back to NY with son in tow, and reconnects with her BFF Wally.

This is a sweet movie, made that much sweeter by the little guy who plays 6 year old Sebastian. Jason Bateman turns in a warm and funny performance, and Jennifer Aniston plays pretty much the same range she usually does. Jeff Goldblum is charming as Wally’s friend and sounding board, and Juliette Lewis is Kassie’s kooky gal-pal.
