'The Switch' trailer: Jennifer Aniston turns to the turkey baster

Here’s the trailer for Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman’s new baby-making movie, The Switch. It used to be called The Baster (yes really), but that didn’t test well. (It was also too confusing, because according to the trailer, The Baster is clearly Juliette Lewis.) Is Jason Bateman making a baby-crying/airplane sound effect while fumbling with the sperm cup over the toilet? I hope so. I also love that the editing makes it seem like Bateman’s Wally hung up his cell phone on Aniston’s Kassie (ugh, with the K) mid-sentence.

I think that kid looks a little more like Jeff Goldblum than Bateman, with the huge dark eyes. (Is anyone else getting a Ted Danson in Bored to Death vibe from Goldblum here? I have no idea why; Danson doesn’t wear chunky sweaters in that. It must just be a “slightly out-of-it mentor” thing.)

I love Jason Bateman so much I saw Extract in a theater, so I’ll probably see this. You too?

    yeah i’ll definitely see this in the theatre because of Jason Bateman. his presence in a movie just pulls me to the theatre. it can’t be stopped.

  • martin

    She had so much potential. Where did it all go wrong?

  • Tom

    Jennifer Aniston is a talented actress when she puts her mind to it, why is she still making these ridiculous romantic comedies???

    • Mothra

  • skiiboski

    I’d watch it. On Netflix.

    The plot is out there but it is based on a short story called Baster by Jeffrey Eugenides that appeared in The New Yorker. He also wrote Middlesex and The Virgin Suicides.

        hahah – awesome.

  • Sue1

    This looks funny, hopefully all the funny scenes aren’t in the trailer. Add me to the list who’ll see it just for Jason Bateman.

  • Drew

    I think it looks cute. I love Jennifer.

  • Xena

    Looks good — just that the kid has dark brown eyes when his mom and both his possible dads have blue, which is an impossibility. That might drive me a little crazy — hello? Doesn’t anyone pay attention in biology anymore?

      recessive genes, anyone?

      • Margie

        Blue has 2 recessives. Brown has one of each or 2 dominants.

    • dahlia

      Have you ever heard of genetics?

    • clodagh

      maybe i’m adopted and don’t know lol but i’m brown eyed with both blue eyed parents!!

  • Scooterette

    ummm…not impossible.
