Product Description

Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman star in the outrageous comedy from the director of Wedding Crashers and the writers of The Hangover. One drunken night, two friends admit that they wish they had the other’s life. Mitch (Reynolds) thinks Dave has it all: a beautiful, loving family and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm. But Dave (Bateman) thinks Mitch’s stress-free life without obligation or consequence is the real dream come true. The next morning they wake up, hungover, in each other’s bodies, and proceed to freak out! With time not on their side, Mitch and Dave comically struggle to avoid completely destroying each other’s lives before they can find a way to get their old ones back.

Amazon.com

Every generation has a reflective body-swap comedy thrust upon it, with results ranging from the genteel Reagan-era George Burns vehicle 18 Again to the slyly empowering, cell phone-savvy remake of Freaky Friday. Fueled by two amazingly game performances from Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds, The Change-Up goes for the gross-out, happily wallowing where those previous films dared not tread. Whatever this says about the current state of society, there's no denying that the results are consistently, ridiculously funny. Kicking off with a gag involving a baby that might give even John Waters pause, director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) wastes no time getting to the gimmick, via a magical fountain that rearranges the brains of an uptight family-man lawyer (Bateman) and party-animal actor (Reynolds). What follows plays like a greatest-hits medley of the genre, shot through with a steadily escalating level of filth. (The reveal of Reynolds's girlfriend will not soon be forgotten/expunged.) Adept as the leads are, they also leave room in the spotlight for some killer supporting players, including Alan Arkin, Olivia Wilde, and especially Apatow vet Leslie Mann, who delivers two lengthy monologues that veer from sympathetic to gloriously bent without missing a beat. High art it most definitely ain't, but The Change-Up lands squarely in the borderland between offensive and hilarious, where the best shock comedies reside. You'll laugh until you gag, and vice versa. --Andrew Wright

    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, porno parodies, and poop-in-the-face shots. Things you'd never expect. AWESOME! It's about time! The biggest haters of this film are prudish parents throwing a collective hissy fit because their 7-year-olds saw some boobs. Whose fault is that? As a parent, you should familiarize yourself with MPAA ratings. Any parent who thought this film was going to be as vanilla as the trailer made it out to be should never breed again...ever. 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.

    This one comes with a warning.....totally, TOTALLY, inappropriate! I am SHOCKED that I like it! This is as risque as it gets for me, and I will still like a movie. Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds are awesomely funny, and their characters are SO WELL-WRITTEN! This movie has been done before (two people change into each other's bodies accidentally, there are LOTS of outrageously funny situations because of this, and then they change back), but RARELY has it been done so well! This is pretty vulgar but is done so exceedingly well that I have watched it a number of times with my 24 year old son. Jason Bateman is Dave, a married conservative, successful lawyer with twin babies who is trying for a partnership in his firm. Ryan Reynolds is Mitch, an immature dolt of a wanna be actor whose main goal in life is bedding every woman he can, sleeping 'til noon and having fun. One night they pee in a fountain and wake up the next morning in each other's bodies! I can't begin to explain the clever situations the writers thought of to exploit every bit of humor from this. This movie is full of surprises and laughs! Gotta love both of those, right? The supporting actors are wonderful, too. I recommend this movie!

    This movie, according to rotten tomatoes and other critics, is supposed to be lousy. In my opinion, this is far from it. It shows the sides of living the opposite lives; living a life of a busy/working man and the life of a down-to-earth/relaxing life. I personally found the movie to be eye-opening. Life's meaning is not to always work but it is also not to always have fun; just need to find the right balance. Great movie with funny moments and also serious and thought-provoking moments. The only negative thing is that they revealed too many of the funny moments in the trailer and left the audience with many predictable scenes. Nevertheless, I will buy the dvd in order to have a physical copy since it is a great movie.

    I have no idea why this movie has bad review. It's REALLY hilarious and well-though. The writing is really strong unlike most movies out today. My friend suggested we see this and all 5 people watching this were cracking up. I would definitely rent it. :)

    14 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 10, 2011
    Format: Amazon Instant Video
    THE CHANGE-UP is another film by the writers of HANGOVER AND HANGOVER II (Jon Lucas and Scott Moore) and the director of wedding crashers (David Dobkin): that should give a pretty solid clue as the what is in store in this film - potty mouth and gross humor that is so very very popular today! The concept of the story (two disparate characters changing lives in a manner as magical as the fairy tale 'The Three Wishes') is not new and at times it becomes wearing, but the big difference here is that the characters are assigned to two really brilliant comic actors - and so it works in the long run.

    Two longtime friends are feeling distance in their relationship: Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) is a womanizing free-spirited life as an actor for commercials and 'lorn movies' (soft porn) who lives in a pigsty of an apartment, grabbing fast food where he can find it, while Dave (Jason Bateman) is a conscientious successful lawyer with a major la firm in Atlanta, and is married to a beautiful woman, and lives in a picture book house with three small children. The old concept of the grass being greener on the other side of the fence brings the men together for a drunken evening where while voiding in a public fountain voice that they wish they could change places. Thunder, darkness and boo, they wake up as the other guy. Mitch must carry on the functions of a learned lawyer while maintaining his own style and faces the duties of a parent of infants and a dissatisfied wife (Leslie Mann) while Dave attempts to adjust to the grungy Lothario existence as the lorn star, being pursued by the beautiful Sabrina (Olivia Wilde).

    THE CHANGE-UP is one of the most hilarious movies I've seen. Yet, the critics say that this movie is 'lousy'. Maybe some people just don't have a good sense of humor. I watched this movie with my two daughters and we had to pause it numerous times because we were laughing so much and didn't want to miss anything.

    Everyone has their own opinions and that's fine. My opinion is that this is a 5 star comedy and I loved it.
