Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If this is a comeback, let's hope J-Lo's got something else up her sleeve."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"Lopez does a fine job mortifying herself in pursuit of physical humor."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"The Back-Up Plan has all of the cliches of a bad rom com, but it's not enough to fall into that formula. It also tries to be a raunch fest"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Yes, you will get to see Lopez eat chili with her bare hands, but that's only half as disgusting as a close-up on a pregnancy test sinking into a pile of fresh dog vomit."
‑ John Gholson, Cinematical
"This movie feels just like J-Lo's 'Back-Up Plan'."
‑ Amy Killin, Moviedex
"Why call it a movie when it's really more of an extended, cutesy TV episode that ought to come with a laugh track and a vibrator?"
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"It's no big surprise that Lopez can still get laughs; she has a relaxed way with the camera that has mellowed and ripened over the years."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"Has an intriguing concept, but with tired jokes, dumb characters and uninspired direction, the execution is botched all around making for a perfect example of all that's bad with the romantic comedy genre."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Nothing to see for anyone who's already viewed their fair share of formulaic romantic comedies."
‑ Sarah Sluis, Film Journal International
"J-Lo je uspjena vlasnica trgovine koja se zakoračivi u 30-e mora suočiti s nimalo ugodnom spoznajom da nije pronala "Gospodina Pravog""
‑ Dragan Antulov,
"The premise was novel enough that I found it sweet and charming."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"To prep for The Back-up Plan, shed all notions of how grown-ups behave in the real world."
‑ Kathleen Murphy, MSN Movies
"Alan Poul's "The Back-Up Plan" is another film in a long line of films that are formulaic to the bone, containing little to no originality, all while following around characters that we could care less about."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"...comes off as an almost prototypical example of a modern romantic comedy..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"J.Lo romcom bursts with frank pregnancy, sex talk."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
