Zoe struggles to let people in her life, whenever they attempt to be in close proximity of her, she shuns them away. She also has a great desire to have a baby, but no person to do it with. So she chooses artificial insemination and fortunately meets her perfect guy the same day.
It's no big surprise that Lopez can still get laughs; she has a relaxed way with the camera that has mellowed and ripened over the years.

Alan Poul's "The Back-Up Plan" is another film in a long line of films that are formulaic to the bone, containing little to no originality, all while following around characters that we could care less about.
Has an intriguing concept, but with tired jokes, dumb characters and uninspired direction, the execution is botched all around making for a perfect example of all that's bad with the romantic comedy genre.
