Synopsis

Growing up together, Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) and Dave (Jason Bateman) were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed they've slowly drifted apart. While Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three, Mitch has remained a single, quasi-employed man-child who has never met a responsibility he liked. To Mitch, Dave has it all: beautiful wife Jamie (Leslie Mann), kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm. To Dave, living Mitch's stress-free life without obligation or consequence would be a dream come true. Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Dave's worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each other's bodies and proceed to freak out. Despite the freedom from their normal routines and habits, the guys soon discover that each other's lives are nowhere near as rosy as they once seemed.

Review

This comedy starring Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds is funny from start to finish. With one liners that are both mature and true to life, you can't help but remember it from your own experience or fear for your future.  Add to this the beautiful Olivia Wilde and Leslie Mann as female support, you can’t help but love this film. The acting is robust. This movie likens Freaky Friday but so much better.  As the drunk walk home leads to a confession of covet, they awake to find that the grass is just a different shade of green. Clever writing, great scenes and quick wit dialog win over the chic flick crowd.  You will find this movie entertaining and well worth two hours of your time.  If your like me, once this movie is in you will not “Change Up” the Blu-Ray player anytime soon.
