Family-Faith Film Review: The Back-Up Plan
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting

The Back-Up Plan—In this dull and predictable romantic comedy single pet store owner Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) conceives twins through artificial insemination, and seems blissfully happy until Mr. Right appears in the form of cheese maker Stan (Alex O’Loughlin). Zoe falls hard, but when she confesses her condition to Stan, he freaks. Despite a “happy” ending, director Alan Poul’s film presents a thoroughly warped view of love, marriage and parenthood, and contradicts Catholic moral teachings on the necessity of maintaining the connection between the punitive and procreative aspects of marital love. Morally skewed treatment of human sexuality, graphic premarital sexual activity, rear and partial nudity, scenes of defecation, much crude language, graphic gynecological exams, and a gruesome water birth scene.  O — morally offensive. (PG-13) 2010
