THE SWITCH Trailer Starring Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston

The first trailer for the hopefully-saved-by-Jason-Bateman comedy The Switch has come online.  The film was previously titled The Baster, but that was deemed too risqué since the film is about artificial insemination.  Instead, the trailer just has Juliette Lewis waving a baster in Jason Bateman’s face.  This is followed by a scene where Bateman knocks over a sperm donation by accident and then refills it off screen.  Crisis averted.

The premise has Bateman as a guy who got caught in the friend zone with Jennifer Aniston’s character.  She decided to get pregnant through artificial insemination and chose the dreamy sperm of Patrick Wilson’s character.  But as we mentioned before, comic circumstances lead to a change-up and Bateman’s “hijacks” her pregnancy.  Seven years later, he recognizes that he has a son, but doesn’t know how to handle the situation.

Now you know why I put “hopefully-saved-by-Jason-Bateman” as the adjective for this movie.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer and the official synopsis.  The Switch hits theaters on August 20th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Switch:

JENNIFER ANISTON stars alongside JASON BATEMAN in this offbeat comedy as Kassie, a smart, fun—loving single woman who, despite her neurotic best friend Wally’s (BATEMAN) objections, decides it’s time to have a baby—even if it means doing it by herself… with a little help from a charming sperm donor (PATRICK WILSON). But, unbeknownst to her, Kassie’s plans go awry because of a last—minute switch that isn’t discovered until seven years later when Wally finally gets acquainted with Kassie’s cute—though slightly neurotic—son. From the people behind “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Juno” comes “The Switch,” due in theaters this summer.
