At the end of the movie when Stan goes to bed after reading to the twins, he mentions one of their names is Penny, a reference to him keeping the penny from the beginning of the movie. See more »
The economics information on the chalkboard when Stan is taking the exam (71 minutes) is incorrect -- he was right to look perplexed and then walk out of that class. On the left side of the screen, the graph with a horizontal line is labeled as "perfectly inelastic," with "E=0". Nope, a horizontal demand curve is "perfectly elastic" and has an elasticity coefficient of infinity. A perfectly inelastic demand curve is vertical and has an elasticity coefficient of zero.

It's awful, awful, awful. Then a small moment happens, that's so magical. That makes it all worthwhile.

"The Back-up Plan" is your usual romantic comedy. I tend to like most romantic comedies so it worked for me.
I think it was a good choice for Jennifer Lopez. With such a beautiful feminine figure, I would prefer to see her as the romantic lead as opposed to most other Hollywood actresses found in these types of roles today. Alex O'Loughlin is a relative new-comer; I found him very handsome and charming.
Although this film offers almost nothing new, at least they tried to give the characters careers that you don't see in every other movie, especially for O'Loughlin's character. I appreciated that. They also added a group of single mothers, the stellar actresses went above and beyond and gave me something to remember the film by.
The jokes for the most part are tried-and-true. You may not laugh all that much, but if you like the romance in romantic comedies, then you will probably like "The Back-up Plan".
