I want to tell you right up front, I hate Jennifer Lopez, she bothers the shit out of me.  She has that Diva attitude without being deserving of it.  I do not think she is funny, a good singer, or a good actress.  If I didn't have to write this movie review I would have never gone to see The Back-Up Plan, my girlfriend also had zero intrest in this movie, so I would have never seen it.  Now that I have seen it, I can tell everyone out there, that you should never ever see this movie.  There is no reason what so ever for men, or women to see this movie.  This is not a statment from the men's point of view on romantic comedies, which I enjoy if they are good.  This is the point of view from a human being, looking out for his fellow man and woman, that you can spend this 2 hours stabbing yourself in the leg with a knitting needle and it will be better time spent than watching The Back-Up Plan. 

So things we need for me to think that a romantic comedy is good.  It has to be funny, this movie had a dog in a little doggy wheelchair and that dog had one funny moment that made me laugh.  How can you have a dog in a doggy wheelchair, and it doesn't have more than one joke.  The rest of the movie was just painful, failed comedy, that was more awkard than anything.  Next the movie has to be at least sweet, it doesn't have to be a sweeping romance, but it does have to have some sort of reflection on love and life, and this movie didn't have any of that.  You had a guy who was a total prick almost the whole movie, a woman who wasn't being fair in the relationship and two people who in the end had zero chemistry and didn't make me belive or like them or the romance.  That's it, that is all you need for a romantic comedy and this movie failed both of those tasks.  So there you go, you don't even get a third paragraph about this movie, it is not worth your time to continue reading this post.  Don't go see this movie.
