Its trailer might look that it was just an ordinary romcom movie but THE SWITCH is more than that.
Aside from Jason Bateman’s reliable wit and timing; Jennifer Aniston’s extraordinary natural charisma for this film; and Thomas Robinson’s endearing portrayal of a nihilist kid; and a group of dependable support, THE SWITCH is an existential-philosophical musing but without being boring or preachy. It asks us some questions on love; patience and persistence; and the natural order of things, among others.
It’s a funny take to an otherwise deep examination of life. You have to pause now and watch it. As its introduction said, “Look at us. Running around, always rushed, always late. I guess that’s why they call it the human race.”
