"The Switch" Aka Sexual Assault is Wacky!
Quoting a commenter at Pandagon on this issue:
"I’d like to submit the notion that Jennifer Aniston is to American Entertainment what Sarah Palin is to American Politics: a walking, talking dressed-up anti-feminist cipher that poaches & mangles feminist language & ideas & is presented as an ideal that other women have to measure up to. I mean, JA’s entire career has been spent playing the same superficially-independent-utramodern-fembot-who-is-really-a-complete-neurotic-mess-for-want-of-a-good-man. Or some variation thereof."

This is another bad movie, marketed toward women that only serves to insult women and encourage rape culture because this is a form of sexual or medical assault at the very least. He straight up asks her, what's wrong with my sperm, and she turns him down as donor. She does not want to have his baby and by making him "hilariously" drunk during the scene in question just serves to promote the horrible notion that drinking alcohol is the get out of responsibility card for men when they want to force their bodies (or their genetic material) into an unwilling woman's body. There's 200 plus comments up at the Pandagon thread dealing with this issue and its a good discussion, but I have to implore you dear readers, please don't see this movie!
