Who says men can't change?
Dave is a married man with two kids and a loving wife , and Mitch is a single man who is at the prime of his sexual life. One fateful night while Mitch and Dave are peeing in a fountain when lightning strikes and they switch bodies.
As an aspiring screenwriter not a day goes by when I don't hear from professionals how difficult it can be to break into the game, even if you have a great script behind you. Then I watch a movie like The Change Up and I start to remember that you don't need a great script at all, you just need the right pals in the right places, because that's the only possible way to explain away this turd of a 'comedy', that David Dobkin--who did give us the decent Wedding Crashers, so he can do better--must have friends upstairs. There is only one reason to watch this movie, and it's not Dobkin and hells teeth is certainly is not the…
Bateman might want to consider a change up in agent.
It is hard to make an original body swap comedy considering at least 10,000 were produced during the 1980s but I am struggling to think of too many R-rated takes on the familiar story. Sadly the R-rated humour here is obvious, crass and rarely funny. I’m going to sound like an old fart but the current trend of gross out humour really isn’t all that appealing to me. It is not so much the fact it has copious amounts of swearing or babies shitting into their father’s mouth but the fact that the swearing alone is supposed to be funny.
It is a shame because the central casting of Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman works well against type and both…
Equally hilarious as it is heartfelt. With two committed and very funny lead performances from Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds, consistent laughs and a good sense of heart, The Change-Up more than makes up for its overlong runtime and its occasional tonal inconsistencies. This is further proof why I love Jason Bateman.
Watched the 'Unrated' version this time. There's slight differences. Not enough to give it an unrated type of thing if you ask me, but it was still as hilarious and interesting as it was the first time.
Like Freaky Friday and every other 'body swap' comedy out there, except with dickhead bro dudes instead. You can tell it's written by the same shitheads that wrote The Hangover, as it's chock full of gross-out humour and overly offensive/racist gags that by and large fall flat on their dumb faces. It's a good 20 minutes too long for what it is, and neither Ryan Reynolds or Jason Bateman learn anything about their awful characters until the final 5 minutes, making the predictable sentimental finale come across as rather trite and insincere.
The only shred of a silver lining is Olivia Wilde. She is bloody lovely. This film is not.
Do you miss the body-switching comedies that became prevalent in the late 1980s? Nope, you don't. Neither did I. Unless you really, really love "Vice Versa", and no one really loves "Vice Versa", you haven't given body switching movies a second thought since at least "Face/Off" (yeah, I would never have thought to mention "Vice Versa" and "Face/Off" in the same paragraph either, but here I am). "The Change-Up" might very well be the best body-switching comedy ever made. Not that this means you should care about it. I certainly didn't. But then I learned a fact about this film that changed everything, and I had to watch it immediately: this movie contains nude footage of Leslie Mann*. I've always…
Freakin' Bateman man like whut
I farted during the film's big sentimental moment and it was the funniest thing that happened over the 1hr52mins.
i wish i could give this zero stars horriblee
Une petite comédie légèrement trash (que ce soit dans les dialogues ou les situations) dotée d'un casting sympa, qui se regarde sans déplaisir et qui s'oublie sûrement vite.
Le principe du changement d'identité me rappelle plusieurs films, même si je ne sais plus lesquels là ! Rien de très original donc. Ça reste drôle en général grâce à des dialogues bien "épicés" et qui osent tout. Idem pour certains plans.
La craquante Olivia Wilde est un (petit) plus pour le film tellement elle remplit l'écran de sa présence.
Vu sur Netflix FR
Like an 1980s body swap comedy with a more raunchy attitude.
Gua suka banget sama ni film, ryan reynolds did it agaaain, film ini fun, dan unsur keluarganya juga dapet
And how is Leslie Mann brilliant in, like, everything?
These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
