After dating a string of Mr. Wrongs, Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) commits to her back-up plan: to take on motherhood alone. But just when she discovers she's pregnant, she meets Mr. Right.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Jennifer Lopez is as appealing as ever, but The Back-Up Plan smothers its star with unrelatable characters and a predictable plot.

If this is a comeback, let's hope J-Lo's got something else up her sleeve.

Common Sense Says
J.Lo romcom bursts with frank pregnancy, sex talk.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Back-up Plan is a romantic comedy that deals frankly with sex and pregnancy, even though it contains very little actual nudity and the story itself is fairly chaste. There is one notable scene of a natural birth in which a naked, pregnant woman squats in an inflatable swimming pool; in one brief shot (played for comedy), her entire body is visible through the water. The movie also contains strong language, including one "f--k" and at least half-a-dozen uses of "s--t." Ultimately, the gruesome details of childbirth and looming parenthood may be unappealing and perhaps even terrifying to teens, but some parents may find something to laugh about.
