Jennifer Lopez artificial insemination comedy debatably superior; Jennifer Aniston artificial insemination comedy arguably inferior.
Jennifer Lopez's attempt to revive her career marches on with The Back-up Plan, a movie that strives to shake up the girl-meets-boy formula by having the girl opt for artificial insemination in the movie's very first scene, before embarking on her impossibly unrealistic fairy tale romance. Which is insane, but alright. I've seen and enjoyed crazier. I've seen Crank.
Last weekend's false victory aside, this weekend How to Train Your Dragon really did return to the top of the box office list, its giant, leathery wings overshadowing two middling releases. Four weeks after it opened with $43 million, it still managed to scrounge up $15 million -- enough to make The Back-up Plan, Jennifer Lopez's grand return to movies, come in second place. If only she'd been more leathery! If only!
