It's subpar sitcom. show more
By turns rowdy and rueful, The Switch is a comedy with serious ramifications, not least of which is the question, what makes a family? show more
Despite a virtually unplayable premise, The Switch overcomes this handicap to turn itself into a friendly, offbeat romantic comedy. show more
I saw the movie in the theatre first. I have watched the DVD too many times to count. I never tire of the wonderful expressive face on Jason Bateman. That is what I call acting. Hope he will be cast in more movies like The Switch.
Comedy? I don't think you will find any laughs in this one. The little boy was the only one who delivered any value for this flick.
I was unexpectly pleased with this movie. Not usually a fan of rom-com-chick flicks, but this one was clever, and well written, and the acting was top rate (Maybe Goldblum's character was a little over done). The little boy is adorable. As for the "crude humor" factor, the movie artfully tap danced around the edges of today's standard for crude. Well done! Worth watching.
