The Back-Up Plan

This is definitely a wait for DVD film. It was funny and whimsical but will lose nothing on the small screen. The best part is the outtakes in the closing credits and that’s saying a lot. I’m not saying I didn’t like this film; because I did I just did not love it. It started of slow and took a while to be funny. The plot is fairly simple Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) has herself artificially inseminated then meets the perfect man. Will he stay around and take care of the baby? You’ll have to see the film to find out. I would be a terrible critic if I gave that away. This film is 1hour and 38 minutes of fun. It is just the type of fun you can have at home on your DVD player. The Back Up Plan is not a family film. It contains sex and language and brief nudity. This should not however take away from the over all enjoyment of this film, Heck, for some it may increase it. It is overall funny and can be enjoyed by anybody 13 or over hence the PG 13 rating. Grade C+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
