I'm not a big fan of body swap comedies and this one didn't look like it would be a particularly useful addition to the genre. However, what it has going for it is a very good cast of comedic talents. Jason Bateman in particular really shines in this film. The first ten minutes or so nearly put me off. The jokes with the babies weren't to my liking at all, but once I got past that I found this to be a highly amusing gross out comedy. It's not a classic but it's a pretty good way to pass an hour and a half.

Another 'body/life swap' film. Nothing original about it but I found it laugh out loud funny. I like both Reynolds and Bateman but felt Bateman looked a bit too old for the age he was supposed to be playing! However, Bateman was the better of the two at getting the mannerisms down pat. He actually made Reynolds character seem a bit camp (which he was in my opinion!).

There are two choices to watch. The Theatre version or the Unrated version. I watched the unrated version. As a parent I did cringe a bit at how Reynolds character treats the baby twins in the film and some parts were too much for me and I thought the writers took some aspects too far (the electrocution). Although I haven't watched the theatre version I am hoping these parts may have been cut out.

The swap is only supposed to have taken place over a week in their lives but I noticed a few mistakes in the timeline of that week. Also some aspects were too far fetched but this is a comedy film so I went with it!

An enjoyable watch.

This is a mondern version of freaky friday for those that remember that. But this one is very funny and contains the hot ryan reynolds. Great chick flick for girly nights.

No this isn't the funniest film I've ever seen and sometimes it goes just a little too far, but I enjoyed it. All of the actors are great and it's very funny in places. All said and done, it's got Ryan Reynolds in it looking just too cute - so give it a go!

I'm a big fan of Ryan Reynolds and this film doesn't disappoint! It's funny and predictable, but a perfect comedy to watch any night of the week.

The Change Up follows two close childhood friends, Dave Lockwood (Jason Bateman -Horrible Bosses) & Mitch Planko (Ryan Reynolds -The Proposal) who live very different lives. Dave is hard working and has been all his life, he is a very successful Lawyer with 3 young children & a beautiful wife. And then they're is Mitch, he is the playboy who has absolutely no responsibilities in his life and cannot commit to anything for very long. Oh, and he is also obsessed with sex.

So, having grown apart over the years, they decide to get together like in the good old days, with a night on the town. This culminates with them towards the end of the night peeing into a fountain & arguing to each other that the other has a great life & vice versa... bish bash bosh, the next day they wake up to find that they have swapped bodies. And comedy & mayhem ensues as they have to live out each others lives, seeing the other side of the coin & track down the mysterious fountain which has been relocated.

Overall it's your basic body swap comedy of old like the original Freaky Friday with Jodie Foster, which has been done in various ways over the years since, but this is very much an adult take on the concept. I thought it was well done & hilarious in places that had me screaming with laughter(the lorno scene), the baby changing scene early on sets the tone of how the film intends to carry on.

Not quite as funny as the best Judd Apatow movies (eg. Knocked Up etc), but the humour is definitely in the same veign (ie. shamelessly crude). If you liked Horrible Bosses, you'll enjoy this - in fact that movie would make a pretty funny double-bill with this!
