It's subpar sitcom: Jennifer Aniston wants a baby. She uses a sperm donor. Jason Bateman loves her, but his passion is unrequited. So he drunkenly switches his sperm for the donor's. Seven years later, the kid (Thomas Robinson) shows up like Bateman's Mini-Me. What to do? The film offers few — make that no — surprises. What almost saves it is the acting. Aniston has charm. And the indispensable Bateman is a gift to comedies on life support. His scenes with the boy belong to a funnier, more feeling movie.

    “Whoomp! (There It Is)”

    Tag Team | 1993

    Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
