Video Trailer of Jennifer Lopez and Alex O'Loughlin in The Back-up Plan 2009-12-21 08:30:37

Movie Preview: Jennifer Lopez in The Back-up Plan

Jennifer Lopez tried to get back into serious mode with recent movies like Bordertown and El Cantante, but after taking some time off for motherhood, she's returned to her tried and true romantic comedies. Here's your first look at The Back-up Plan, where Lopez stars as Zoe, a 30-something woman who turns to artificial insemination when she can't find "the one" but also refuses to ignore her biological clock any longer. Of course, right after she makes the decision, her Prince Charming shows up in the form of scruffy-dreamy Alex O'Loughlin.

Sound familiar? Maybe it's because The Back-up Plan looks an awful lot like Baby Mama and will undoubtedly be confused with Jennifer Aniston's upcoming comedy The Baster (yes, that kind of baster). Still, it doesn't look terrible as far as romantic comedies are concerned, and it should be enough to satisfy fans of The Wedding Planner and Maid in Manhattan. Plus, as much as I love Patrick Dempsey and Bradley Cooper, it's always nice to get a hot new guy in the mix.

The film hits theaters in April 2010, and to see the trailer just read more.
