by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
3 of 5

“..well-paced and impressively polished, the movie shuttles us through major life moments with easygoing confidence..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..this formulaic indie might be hyped into modest theatrical business before finding its niche in home-viewing formats..”
by Alissa Simon [Variety]
“..the movie is a lot more fun when they're with these friends, but that's really only at the very beginning and briefly towards the end..”
by Edward Douglas [ComingSoon.net]
“..the funny wheel-spinning is replaced with just going through the motions..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
Review rate : B+

by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]

“..it's too tame for the whooping crowds of women who made hits of the Sex and the City movies and Bridesmaids..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
Review rate : B+

“..goes on a beat or two too long, and lands in the obvious place, but it's filled with smarts and laughs and passion..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
“..give you a few big laughs, a little cry, and a sporadic shiver of recognition..”
by David Edelstein [New York Magazine]
3 of 4

“..for all of the hilarious, raunchy talk and contemporary feel, though, in the second half the movie gets stuck in some well-worn "When Harry and Sally Met Parenthood" grooves..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
3 of 4

“..as a result, boast a disappointingly underwhelming final 20 minutes - with the fake break-up-inspired final stretch coming off as needless and unnecessary..”
by David Nusair [Reel Film Reviews]
“..a better film around the edges, the central couple in "The Switch" is funnier, better acted and way more romantically plausible..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
