In a raunchy take on a familiar premise, Reynolds and Bateman shine as two opposing characters who swap bodies. The comedic timing and improv skills of the leads make a lot of lesser scenes work. Surprisingly, though I was expecting a dud of a comedy, the film is fairly consistent on laughs and even arrives at some heartwarming conclusions.

Dave and Mich are two best friends living an opposite life, Dave being a family man and Mich as a single independent guy. One night, the two wish for their lives to be switched, the next morning, it happened. *** Without a doubt, this movie gives so much fun and entertainment. But to tell you honestly, I really didn't like the acting that much, though, I honestly appreciate. I can't extract so much from Ryan Reynolds, I know he's trying but that's exactly the point, he's trying to portray his roles which then appeared he's just trying. And he looks awkward this time. Jason Bateman on the other hand, I always see him on a coat-and-tie role, haven't seen him doing more challenging roles, I believe he has something more to offer.

A gross out comedy that delivers laughs-a-plenty!

Hmmm, another body-switching comedy! From the peaks of Big, Freaky Friday, The Hot Chick and 17 Again with Face/Off being my guilty pleasure — I thought I’d seen them all but then along comes The Change-Up, a R-rated comedy version with a whole lot of F-bombers that gives a whole lot of meaning to the song “Sweet Cherry Pie”. It's slightly similar to Hall Pass with a little bit of Bridesmaids thrown in for good measure.

In the opening scene, we meet Dave (Jason Bateman). Dave is a successful lawyer with a loving wife, a sweet 5-year-old daughter and a couple of adorable, 2-year-old twins. His lifelong pal Mitch is played by Ryan Reynolds, a carefree, irresponsible, lazy, drug and alcohol addicted bachelor currently making "lorno" or "light porno" movies.

Both are bored with their ...

Finally a "body switch" flick I can actually enjoy.this film is one of the funniest film I have ever seen in a long really is that good.the main leads, Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynold play each other like is if they were actually each other.this film has it all : ruanchy comedy , fun characters , funnny ,gross out's a raucnhy lover's desire.this film is so funny.I feel like the actors were handed a great script and they turned it into something better with their acting abilities.amazing funnny film.the only problem I had with the film and no,it's not the length,some people hated how it ran over an hour and 50 minutes,but I think it helped by giving us more character depth.but the thing i can nit pick is that at times I feel they try to hard to be funny at moments and fai...

The Change-up review

Mitch Planko and Dave Lockwood (Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman) have decided to piss on a fountain and simultaneously mention that they want to exchange lives. Mitch is a care free single porn star while Dave is a successful lawyer with a family and all the basic necessities in a home. It’s weird that the film has huge contradiction of making valuable messages despite the numerous toilet and coarse humor. You see Dave being pooped at, a baby playing with sharp objects and almost getting his hands cut off with a blender. The premise was good since it showed how 2 main leads mature. Mitch becomes responsible and “doesn’t quit” while Dave learns to enjoy life and learns to relax. Reynolds and Bateman were good, but the script and silly childish scenes just ruins the picture. Accordin...
