The Change-Up

Director: David Dobkin
Stars: Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds, Leslie Mann, Olivia Wilde
Rating and Length: R / 112 minutes
Genre: Comedy

Eh. Two dudes change bodies, they have fun being each other, and in the end realize they want their own lives back.  Pretty mediocre story for such funny actors.  The movie relies too heavily on gross out humor and slap stick (there is a knife throwing baby. really?) when it should be relying on how funny Bateman, Reynolds and Mann are, which is very funny.  It does get some good laughs and there are a few touching moments, but all-in-all it doesn't live up to the expectation of how good Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds should be together.
