The Back-Up Plan (PG-13) 

☆☆☆☆☆

On the day of her artificial insemination, Jennifer Lopez finally meets the man of her dreams (poorly played by Alex O’Loughlin). Excruciating, interminable and preoccupied with the words “shit” and “vagina,” The Back-Up Plan is the worst film to come out of Hollywood so far this year. Television director Alan Poul (Big Love) makes his feature film debut with a remedial script by TV writer Kate Angelo.

Summer Movie Preview

The summer movie season actually begins in spring, as Hollywood unveils its first big blockbuster, Iron Man 2, at midnight May 6 in Las Vegas (and everywhere else the next day). With a script written by Justin Theroux and packed with A-List stars such as Don Cheadle, Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson, there’s considerable reason to believe the sequel will top the upstart franchise’s first installment.
