The Switch | ★★★★★★★

I liked this movie. The two main characters, played by Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, are interesting and the story (though a bit clichéd) is fairly engaging. I particularly liked the development of Bateman's character who is forced to go beyond himself as he is drawn into love.  Here is a quote from him that reflects a bit of his journey:
"Look at us, running around. Always rushed, always late. I guess that's why they call it the human race. What we crave most in this world is connection. For some people it happens at first sight. It's when you know you know. It's fate working its magic. And that's great for them. They get to live in a pop song. Ride the express train. But that's not the way it really works. For the rest of us, it's a bit less romantic. It's complicated, it's messy. It's about horrible timing, and fumbled opportunities. And not being able to say what you need to say when you need to say it. At least, that's the way it was for me."
I loved how flawed these characters are and how they stretched the definition of normal. I found the movie to be thoughtful and, on a scale of ten, I give this movie ★★★★★★★.
