The ‘Change-Up’ takes the traditional body-switching movie to a whole new level
This post brought to you by The Change-Up. All opinions are 100% mine.
From the director of one of my all time favorite comedies Wedding Crashers, comes this latest movie about two friends (Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman) undergoing the classic body switch. In the movie, Jason’s character plays an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three — while his buddy Mitch (Ryan) lives the high life as a single man without responsibilities. It would seem as if Mitch would be happy with such a life, but surprisingly he admires the life of Dave (Jason’s character). To Mitch, Dave has it all: a beautiful wife, kids who adore him and a high paying job at a prestigious law firm.
Both men would soon be in for a rude awaking as a fun night of drinking turns into a body-switching experience — as they wake up in each other’s bodies. Despite being freed from their normal habits and routines; Dave and Mitch throughout the movie have to figure out a way of not ruining each other’s lives. This is a great movie you can take your wife or friends to see — especially if you’re into body switching movies. I encourage you guys to check out The Change-Up when it hits theaters August 5th, 2011.
