Unrequited love takes an unusual turn in this would-be comedy teaming Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman. She's an unmarried woman who wants to have a child, and he's the longtime friend who secretly pines for her romantically.
He manages to switch his sperm with that of the intended donor; the latter half of the film, which advances several years and isn't quite as jokey, plays better than the first. Juliette Lewis and recent "Morning Glory" co-stars Patrick Wilson and Jeff Goldblum also appear. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; deleted scenes. ** (PG-13: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
