Very funny and at times emotional movie.

Really enjoyed this movie. Bateman and Aniston are so good together in this oddly funny film, both contributing outstanding performances. The supporting characters are very good, as well, especially Jeff Goldbloom, I think. And I have to give both the writers and the director big kudos, as they did a fine job, especially in their depiction of believable characters with real life challenges.
Bateman and Aniston's characters, Wally and Kassie, have been friends for years. Both in their early thirties and living in New York, Kassie is ready to start a new chapter in her life and become a mother. Wally, a bit neurotic and negative, does not support Kassie in this decision. Kassie finds a sperm donor, gets pregnant and moves back home (out-of-state) to raise her child.
What Kassie doesn't know is that Wally, while drunk at the conception party, spills the donor's sperm and substitutes his own - thus The Switch. Wally doesn't remember doing it, so they both go their separate ways, keeping in touch only through email for the next seven years.
Seven years later, Kassie and her child move back to New York, and things go on from there with their character development, interaction etc. (Don't want to say more and expose any spoilers, but the story-line is fresh, original and entertainling.) A touching and clever film that should make you at least smile a lot, if not laugh out loud.

Delightfully I found this movie to be totally enjoyable. Well-written, it has character, it has depth, it has humor and it is well-acted, especially Bateman. Aniston relects well in his glow. There are typical, quirky best friends but they are earnestly portrayed and appropriately cast, Juliette Lewis and Jeff Goldblum play completely separate entities that influence Bateman's neurotic, indecisive Wally. Patrick Wilson, who is an admirable actor, is charming as the supposed donor. The child actor is honest and fresh. I look forward to watching it again
