    Synopsis


    The Change-Up
    A married father and a swinging single swap bodies after a wild night of drinking, and do their best not to throw each other's lives into complete chaos while scrambling to figure out a way to get back in their own skin. Dave (Jason Bateman) and Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) grew up together. They used to be inseparable, but these days they're lucky if they cross paths every few months. Dave is a successful lawyer and happily married father of three; Mitch is a single sexual dynamo locked in a perpetual state of arrested adolescence. And while Mitch admires Dave for having a gorgeous wife (Leslie Mann), happy kids, and a high-paying job, Dave envies his unhitched pal's freewheeling lifestyle and his ability to bed any woman who shoots him a seductive glance. Then one night, after having a few too many, Mitch and Dave voice their mutual admiration for one another, never once suspecting they might be about to find out how the other half lives. However, upon waking up the following morning, the two lifelong pals discover that they have somehow traded places. At first the thought of getting a momentary reprieve from their regular routines is an amusing novelty, but the longer it lasts, the more they just want their old lives back. Just when it seems that things can't get any more complicated, Dave's stunning legal associate Sabrina (Olivia Wilde) drops a bombshell, and Mitch gets a surprise visit from his estranged father (Alan Arkin). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I was impressed with the creators for taking an R-rated movie and infusing it within a PG genre. The body swap concept has been beaten to death over the past 25 years, but never has there been one so crass and non kid-friendly. There's nudity, swearing, and poo-in-the-face shots. Things you'd never expect. AWESOME! It's about time! As for the humor, it wasn't all frat boy humor. Most of it was smart and witty. The ending was sappy and typical, but I'm glad I took a chance on this one.

      My wife and I are Ryan Reynolds fans, pretty much no matter what he does, we will watch it. This was a fun movie that reminded us of the 80s movie, Freaky Friday, switching lives and trying to figure out how to get back into their own bodies. It is a fun twist on the old story, having it be two friends, one married with kids, one a ladies man... They switch to see that the other side is not always what they thought it was... Fun movie.

      Jason Bateman might be the most underrated comedic actor of his generation. He plays SUCH a great straight-guy to ANYbody's more flamboyant antics, in this case Reynolds', with such fantastic deadpan and timing, it's just great to watch him as the whoa-is-me guy who never seems to get it right. Reynolds, of course, delivers with great timing and slapstick, as usual (e.g. Van Wilder), so the two playing off of each other is pure comedic GOLD.

      If your looking for a movie that will have you laughing about the most stupid stuff this is it. The movie can have a few raunchy parts but.... easy to look past due to the movie has a few touchy moments and is down right funny. May not want a child to see the movie because the amount of nudity that is in the movie. Overall great movie if your looking to laugh your butt off.

      I did not think I would like this movie because I am not a huge fan of Jason Bateman or Ryan Reynolds, but I enjoyed the movie. I watched the movie because I had some free time and decided to watch it. I was not disappointed. I laughed and enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend this movie to fans of the actors and to anyone who likes comedies.

      This is not a new plot, switching bodies/minds but a nice fresh look at with two friends, one married and one not, getting to see first hand how the other lives. Some of the typical potty humor you get with a Ryan Reynolds film but it still works.

      This plot device has been used many times in the past. However, Jason Bateman is good in everything and even Ryan Reynolds does a good job of acting like Bateman. I enjoyed this and will watch it again and again.
