"The Back-Up Plan"

Jennifer Lopez plays Zoe, a single woman who is ready to start a family but has no husband.  Taking matters in to her own hands, she decides on having one by artificial insemination.  That done, she meets - by chance, her soul mate!  There chance meeting grows into love - yada, yada, yada.  Funny moments, understanding that love is forever, and that no one is leaving.... then, the expected happy ending.  Would save this one for later; hold off as a first date movie.  Tough to relate Jennifer Lopez in the role.  Better suited for Katherine Heigl or Kristen Bell.

"The Chosen One"

Rob Schneider in a more serious role than his norm - an alcoholic used car salesman with a monk for a brother.  Somehow Rob loses faith in himself.  This is made worse when his father commits suicide.  Then, out of South America a group of Shaman show up at his door; they say he is the Chosen One - the only person on earth who can save mankind from its own destruction.  Good movie, hold as a first date though.  Was expecting the comedy and slap stick that Rob is good at....
