Movie review : The Switch

A very cute movie – and also a more grown-up version of a romantic comedy than we are used to seeing. Characters’ actions have consequences; personalities have depth. The Switch hit all the right notes to be a classic.

Aniston finally has a vehicle that isn’t embarrassing – she’s fine in this film. And while she may be the headliner, it’s the characters of Wally and Sebastian that steal every scene. They are recognizable people – neurotic ones, yes, but the kind of people you’d like to know (or maybe already do).

Jeff Goldblum does his recognizable ‘dry/droll humor’ schtick, in a good way.

The obligatory ‘jerk’ love interest is even likeable. There aren’t good guys and bad guys here – just people.

The picture frame metaphors are lovely.

The Switch could have caved to saccharine urges, but never stoops to that level. This film earns an easy A, and due to Jason Bateman’s solid talent, is very rewatchable.
