Editorial Reviews

Jennifer Lopez stars as Zoe, a single New Yorker who dreams about meeting Mr. Right, having a baby and living happily ever after. But after a string of Mr. Wrongs, Zoe commits to her back-up plan: to take on motherhood alone. Zoe's plan proves far from foolproof when moments after her procedure she's swept up into a whirlwind romance with Stan (Alex O'Loughlin), the man of her dreams. Can Zoe hide her pregnancy until Stan is ready for the truth? Or will the truth send him packing? The Back-Up Plan is a hilarious romantic comedy about courtship, love, marriage and parenthood - but not necessarily in that order!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Rom-Com December 26, 2010
As a fan of romantic comedies, Jennifer Lopez, and Alex O'Loughlin, I loved this movie. Yes, it followed the typical plot structure and conventions of romantic comedies, but, so what? (Why aren't action movies, and other movies aimed at men, criticized for being even more formulaic than rom-coms? Only so-called "chick-flicks" are judged this harshly for following the structure of their genre.) I wasn't expecting a masterpiece that would sweep the awards shows. I was looking for some fun, heartwarming entertainment, and this movie delivers. Jennifer Lopez is wonderful at physical comedy, and we saw another side of Alex O'Loughlin. Having only seen him in intense, brooding roles, I was surprised at how well he delivered in a comedy. As a bonus, we also got to enjoy Tom Bosley in his final role, a bittersweet moment for his fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this Movie! December 4, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Even though critics weren't kind in their reviews of this film, I loved it - particularly the acting, which was authentic and superb. Alex O'Loughlin is a terrific leading man, and after seeing this film I was motivated to watch his "Moonlight" Series on DVD and start watching him on Hawaii 5-0. The only downside for me were the scenes in the support group, particularly the birthing scene. When I watch the film on DVD I skip through all scenes containing the support group. It's over-the-top stupid and offensive in my opinion and makes the difficulty of child birth seem like a joke. But the dog playing "Nuts" and the sweet romantic scenes make this film worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alex O'Loughlin makes this movie September 5, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very good fun. While Jennifer Lopez is the "star" of the movie, don't sell Alex O'Loughlin short. He REALLY makes this movie great! His reactions to the situation(s) is what truly makes this a great comedy. Looking forward to seeing more of him in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Charming and entertaining romantic comedy" December 28, 2010
Immediate chemistry between Jennifer Lopez and Alex O'Loughlin.

Zoe a single New Yorker decided that at her age with no husband in sight she would have a baby. What she didn't count on was meeting the handsome and sexy, Stan.....Mr. Right. On top of their whirl win romance they found out Zoe was expecting twins.

Like every romance ups and down and so many sweet moments.

In one scene, Zoe and Stan are at a friends home while she was giving birth in a pool and I almost split from laughing so hard.

Zoe coming to terms with the past and wanting Stan in her life was fun, yet emotional at times. A great cast of characters in this film and a dog with "no legs" on a cart, you'll fall in love with!

I thought "The Back-Up Plan" was a fun romantic comedy, actually better than I expected. J-Lo (Zoe) was beautiful as always. Alex O'Loughlin (Stan) - a darn fine leading man. I'd take him even if he smelled like goat cheese.

There were some FUNNY parts - loved the Dad in the park and his sandbox son; stew eating at its most refined (I couldn't stop laughing over that); really nasty over-the-top birthing scenes kind of like a car wreck that you slow down to gawk at (I would not take anyone who is actually planning on getting pregnant especially of the male persuasion - this movie could be very effective birth control).

I loved Nuts, the little wheelchair-strapped dog. He was a riot - better than some of the human actors.

Melissa McCarthy was a lot overboard as Carol, the head of the single mother's group Zoe attends.

I also liked Linda Lavin as Zoe's grandmother. I hadn't seen her in anything in a while and she added a nice spark.

Were there some unbelievable parts? Well, yeah, quite a few. But this is a comedy not a documentary and bizarre is okay with me.

Also, it had a very nice soundtrack - some of the songs played in the movie aren't on the CD though.

1.0 out of 5 stars A different view! PLEASE READ before you buy January 28, 2012
WEll yes Jennifer is adorable BUT don't be fooled by the "cute" modern subject of this movie or the title. There are SO many WEIRD twists and rideculous, bizzare and DISTURBING sceenes it was just so GROSS at times- i can't believe she agreed to make this movie. Now if you WANT to watch (first sceene) her being examined by her gynocologist - while he pulls a bloody instrument out of her -Then knock yourself out! If you WANT to watch a woman having a baby in a kiddie pool while ALL her friends stand and watch and you get to see WAY more than you want to -- then have fun - the plot was WEIRD and made no sense and NO guy would fall for her like that - it was just ODD!! I wouldn't waste my money on buying it - I was sorry I went to see it! what a waste of my time and her talent!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Another miserable "heroine" in a romantic comedy... April 7, 2011
I was slacked jawed after sitting through this entire movie. The basic premise was weak and more than a little far fetched - Jennifer Lopez's character decides she can't wait anymore for Mr. Right and wants a baby NOW! Then after her first try attempt at a sperm bank... she meets Mr. Right and the sparks fly. Turns out her first attempt was more than successful - she's pregnant with twins. Mr. Right decides he doesn't care that she's pregnant and pursues her anyway. (Insert requisite ups/downs/breakups/etc until the required happy ending.) On paper is doesn't look too horrible. So what's the problem?

The heroine has no redeeming qualities. None. She's whiny, neurotic, controlling and spends much of the time trying to push the hero away because of a childhood trauma. I don't see how any guy would want to be around her for long once they got past her looks.

One the other hand the male lead is beyond saintly. He's funny and charming. He runs a successful business and going back to school to improve himself. And willing to go into a new relationship with a woman who just got pregnant with twins (that aren't his). On top of this, he puts up with and embraces all her neurosis and keeps coming back for more as she pushes him away throughout the movie. I just could not suspend my disbelief that these two would want a relationship - any sort of relationship.
