New Release: The Switch DVD and Blu-ray

The Switch movie sceneYet another Jennifer Aniston (Love Happens) romantic comedy, The Switch arrived on DVD and Blu-ray on March 15, 2011, from Lionsgate.

The movie grossed less ($27.7 million) than other of Aniston’s recent films, such as The Bounty Hunter ($67 million) and He’s Just Not That Into You ($94 million), but The Switch features a fine lineup of comedic actors. As well as Aniston, there’s Jason Bateman (Juno), Jeff Goldblum (Morning Glory), Juliette Lewis (Due Date) and Patrick Wilson (Barry Munday).

In the PG-13 film, Aniston plays unmarried Kassie who decides it’s time for her to have a baby, even if it means doing it by herself. But, unbeknownst to her, there’s an accidental switch involving her her sperm donor (Wilson) and her neurotic best friend Wally (Bateman). That’s not discovered until seven years later, however, when Wally meets Kassie’s neurotic 7-year-old son (Thomas Robinson).

The DVD was priced at $29.95 and the Blu-ray at $39.99.

Both include these special features:

  • deleted scenes
  • and the making-of featurette “The Switch Conceived.”

The Blu-ray also offers:

  • additional deleted scenes and an alternate ending with intro from directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck (Blades of Glory)
  • and cast bloopers.

Aniston’s next romantic comedy found her scheming with Adam Sandler (Grown Ups) in Just Go With It, which will hit theaters on Feb. 11, 2011, a month before The Switch bowed on disc.

Here’s a deleted scene that’s on the DVD and Blu-ray:
