Jennifer Aniston in The Switch Trailer, Formerly The Baster
Miramax (who we thought wasn't operating anymore?) has debuted a trailer for the new romantic comedy The Switch starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Patrick Wilson, Jeff Goldblum and Juliette Lewis. The original title was The Baster, in reference to the cooking tool that Aniston uses for insemination - but the sperm she chooses gets replaced by someone else's (you'll see who in the trailer) and the kid she has isn't the son of the man she thinks. Unfortunately, they show pretty much the entire movie in the trailer, so after watching this, I don't think I want to see the movie anymore. Take a look and let us know what you think?

An unmarried woman turns to a turkey baster in order to become pregnant. Years later, she reunites with her best friend, who has been living with a secret: he replaced her preferred sperm sample with his own.
The Switch was co-directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, who last directed Blades of Glory and received an Oscar nomination for their 1998 short film Culture. The screenplay was written by the rather popular Allan Loeb, of Things We Lost in the Fire, 21, and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. This is based on a short story by celebrated author Jeffrey Eugenides. Miramax, who is releasing this as one of their last films before shutting down, has The Switch scheduled for release on August 20th later this year. So anyone interested?
