"The Switch" is about a woman seeking to get pregnant by a donor. It stars Jennifer Aniston as "Kassie" and Jason Bateman as "Wally" who becomes jealous over her pregnancy plan. Juliet Lewis makes an appearance as "Debbie" - a pill popping hippy that finds Kassie a donor. 

"Kassie" and "Debbie" decide to have a big party the night the former is to inseminate herself with a turkey baster and the sperm donated by a professor. However, a drunk and drugged "Wally" goes to the bathroom to urinate and ends up playing with then dropping the donated sperm down the sink. He then replaces it with his own without telling "Kassie."  

The new world wierdo rituals and gross out factors in this movie makes it a strange and kooky film. It gets gross at points - such as the aforementioned drunk man playing with another man's sperm he finds sitting in a jar. Was that really necessary. 

This film mocks pregnancy and the plight of women, who struggle to have kids. Leave it to Hollywood to do something so sick. I can see why it flopped. "The Switch" is more like The Stupid.
