Last night was the UK premier of Jennifer Lopez’s latest film ” The Back- Up Plan”. After two years off, looking after her twins, she is back once again trying to make an impact on the movie scene.
Unfortunately the film has done pretty badly so far in the US box office, only taking $ 12.25 million in its opening weekend, with animated film ‘How To Train A Dragon’ keeping the number one spot.
The film is about a woman who conceives twins through artificial insemination but oh no, she finds the man of her dreams on the very same day. What’s a woman to do? Well, you’ll have to see the film yourself to see how that one unfolds. Is it art imitating life though? Lopez had been desperate for children but luckily met the man of her dreams, Marc Anthony and gave birth to not just one, but two babies. Some cynical people out there have suggested that a bit of IVF may have been involved. Anyway, having just had children herself, she says it made it much easy for her to play the part of a pregnant women, so expect some very convincing acting.
Her co star and love interest is Alex O’ Loughlin, don’t worry we haven’t heard of him either, and cost $35 million to make.
Hopefully, us Brits will go out in force and see the film and help J Lo get back to the top. But, judging by the quality of celeb who showed up to last night’s premier( the likes of Bianca Gasgoine and Kerry Katona were there) the film may not be a huge hit. On another note, what does everyone think of J-Lo’s hair and dress? I’m leaning towards thinking it looked like a bin bag and a birds nest.
