Hollywood Forces American Children to Confront Heterosexual Sperm

THE SHOT — The movie poster for Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman’s new film The Switch — where, stupid spoiler alert, Aniston’s insemination goes awry when old pal Bateman uses his sperm — that will be plastered in cinemas, outdoor billboards, and bus seats across America. Hands, please, if you think the MPAA would’ve cleared a similar poster for a film about two dudes engaged in surrogacy. [via Malkin]

      Am I weird for thinking the wrongest thing about this poster is that no-one at the studio notice Ms Aniston is clearly *not* looking at her partner?

      you should also notice that the picture is actually 2 pictures placed side by side. His hand is sort of cut off. So, she isn’t looking at him. My guess is he just dropped his soldiers off in the cup and she’s waiting outside. Still, no… you are not wierd. At first glance, it does seem off.

      @Ricky: Oh, it was quite clear those are two images stuck, however haphazardly, together. Not quite Photoshop Disasters-quality, but bad enough to wonder who gets paid to check those.

      I don’t think the children will get too curious why the man is having that face expression while looking at the cup..lol. Unless of course the parents will tell them what’s on it, or what the movie is about.

      There clearly is a double standard in America. Kudos to Queerty for pointing it out.

      @jason: Indeed – this would never have happened had it been a jar of female ejaculate.

      Anyone else think that the whole premise of this movie sounds awwwwwful? It might be a cute 3 minute skit, but that “haha” wears off fast.

      I feel sorry for my str8 amigos who will be dragged to see it by their girlfriends.

      Dear Jennifer Aniston,

      PLEASE stop making movies. You are 41, which makes you much to old to be making the kind of crap movies you’ve been turning out recently. When Meryl Streep was your age (back in 1990) she had already made KRAMER VS. KRAMER, THE FRENCH LIEUTENANT’S WOMAN, SOPHIE’S CHOICE, SILKWOOD, PLENTY, OUT OF AFRICA, and A CRY IN THE DARK.

      Love, Me

      I’m just surprised in a gay news site, no one has posted something funny about swallowing or anythng of that calibre lol.

      I guess I’m just bored XD

      I can’t wait to get a better copy of this graphic and fire up Photoshop. The facial expressions, the prop, even the title – all too easy!

      Switched at birth. What a novel idea for a movie. The poster is fuzzy. I can’t read who plays the butt of the joke, lucky child.

      A gay version would sail right through the MPAA provided it were backed by the same funding and corruption as mainstream movies generally are. That wouldn’t happen though because there isn’t a big enough market for that sort of movie (yet).

      @Dominik: Actually I think it’s more like “switched a squirt”.

      @Michael: It’s kind of like the Pepsi challenge, right?
