Film Critic Reviews 'The Backup Plan,' 'Oceans'

Ad Feedback

Several new movies premiered on the big screen recently, including Jennifer Lopez's "The Back-up Plan" and a new nature documentary from Walt Disney entitled "Oceans."

"The Back-up Plan" tells the tale of a single woman who seemingly has everything except the one thing she desires most: kids. It's a problem soon solved by a visit to a fertility specialist.

But when love enters the picture, matters soon get complicated.

According to Focus on the Family's 'Plugged-In Online,' the film takes the traditional romantic tale of love, marriage and kids and offers it up in the reverse order - starting with kids.

"But I still believe in love, marriage and family, in that order," Plugged-In film reviewer Paul Asay said.

In contrast, Disney's "Oceans" is a more than hour and a half-long dramatic documentary that delves into the innocent world of the earth's underwater universe.

"To really know what the ocean is, you have to see it for yourself," Narrator Pierce Brosnan suggests in the film's introduction. "Merely knowing that (so many different) creatures exist isn't enough to tell the stories of their lives. You've got to see them jump and turn and swim."

Plugged-In Director Bob Waliszewski offers a review of both films in addition to a preview of the new movies coming out this summer. Click play for that interview.
