I guess since Michael Vartan's one shot at romantic-comedy leading man failed him opposite Jennifer Lopez in Monster-in-law, she's cursed or something to forever work alongside bland, good-looking leading men who are likely going nowhere. See here Alex O'Loughlin. Maybe she's the female version of the Adam Sandler curse (see also: Ben Affleck, and come to think of it, when's the last time that Richard Gere had a hit. I don't think he's had once since Shall We Dance).

Anyway, here's the trailer for ... shit. I forgot the title already. Actually, I saw this trailer before Did You Hear About the Morgans? over the weekend, and didn't even realize it until I was three-quarters of the way through it this morning. It's that forgettable. Oh wait: The Back-Up Plan. That's what it's called. Here's what I suspect the logline is, which was likely cooked up in a petri dish when a scientist rubbed two brain cells together and dropped them in rubbing alcohol: "A single woman conceives a child with a sperm donor and immediately thereafter finds the perfect man. Pregnancy hijinx ensue."

So, it's basically Knocked Up plus a sperm donor and minus the humor. You know who makes Katherine Heigl look good by comparison? Jennifer Lopez.

I rest my case:
