Out of all the reviews I read it seems that no one enjoys a good R rated comedy anymore. What happened to the days when everyone kept it simple. This movie made me laugh a lot from start to end. There was a lot of harsh language in this movie BUT! it was done very well. So many funny parts in the movie. I did not find myself bored at anytime in this film. I watched this movie in the hopes to enjoy myself and laugh till my sides hurt and it did just that. One of the better R rated profane comedies I've seen in the last few years. So many comedies have came out rated PG-13 the last few <more>
years and many of them was just plain dull.If you enjoy adult humor this is a movie you will like. This movie IS NOT for children lol.If you do not enjoy adult humor why are you here? Don't review or even rate it ffs go back and watch smurfs or whatever.
Like someone has turned The Hangover s into a romantic comedy (by anja-liker)
I'm writing my review for the first time here only because I can read how those that actually reviewed this movie didn't see the point; You were warned - Wedding crashers director + Hangover writers over 100 minutes of pure R rated fun!I must say I went to see this movie without knowing anything but that line ^^ and for the first time in my life I sat in the front row yes, the 1st row and I wasn't sorry I did.The movie is another body changing movie, yes, but I didn't watch Freaky Friday cause I find it to be amusing for younger audience. Seeing Hangover and having a great <more>
time made me see this movie also, and liking it. Still, this movie has a vulgar way of making you laugh and at the same time cheer for the main characters as they are changing their life to better. Acting is way better than expected, all the jokes are understood and yes, again, they are vulgar but somewhat surprising.If you liked Hangover s GO SEE THIS MOVIE, especially in the movie theatre cause there is nothing better than when you can laugh out along with the rest of the younger crowd.
Love this movie! Just wanted to say to the people writing reviews, his name is Jason Bateman, not Justin!! Really?? Buy it, you'll love it. Jason and Ryan are great and work together so well. I haven't seen the theatrical version, just the unrated so can't compare, but loved it. There is a lot of potty mouth in this movie, but I think it added to the hilarity and wouldn't have been the same without it, but may offend some I suppose. I'm so not easily offended so I was crackin up. I've never left a movie review before, but the people leaving a review without getting the <more>
main actors name right really irritated me. If you are going to take the time to write a review and give credit to a talented actor at least get the name right. How offensive to get Jason's name wrong!
If you like comedies, watch this. If you like either Jason Bateman or Ryan Reynolds - watch this.I did not have great expectations towards this movie, and it surprised me. Much-much funnier in my opinion then some competing titles that hit the cinemas this year - or last year. The ending is cliché, but makes up for it.It is just a fresh breath or air among the lot of "mellow" and "safe" family comedies. which are - in my opinion - are too mild and stupid to be funny This film dares to step out of the bounds and speak to an audience which is between 20 and 50 years old. <more>
They will understand the film - because it's about their lives. not some dumbed-down, Hollywood remake of a real life - at least this is how I felt when I saw it after Ted Go and see it, if you want a good laugh - and don't expect any plot-twists :
I was surprised. "The Change-Up" is great. Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman are amazing. Yes, this movie premise has been done before like "Big" or "Disney's The Kid". Reynolds and Bateman's characters switch bodies in some sort of cosmic twist, after wishing each had the other's life while urinating in a fountain. The predictable epiphany: Each man has appreciation for the other's life, and renewed respect. However, the screenplay by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore writers of "The Hangover" is not nearly so trite, and more profound in <more>
ambition.The beginning of the movie is kind of a red herring; given the f-bomb laden language and the projectile baby poop. I think that the advertising as an edgy gross out comedy misrepresents, and perhaps dilutes the true appeal. True, the question: "Whose penis does that belong to?" is not what we are left with; although it is funny. What if you got to see your life through another person, and through those that love him? Two scenes resonate. Body switched Reynolds listens to Dave's wife Jamie funny and touching Leslie Mann tearfully tell him that Dave no longer desires her. She confesses that Dave is a good man, who wants "more, more": promotion, second house, more kids. How can she be with "someone who isn't happy?" She is really confessing to Dave. Reynolds is brilliant in his humility. Mitch's Dad great Alan Arkin asks to see body switched Bateman for a favor. Mitch Sr. tells Dave that he loves his son, but that Mitch is a quitter. He quits everything in his life. He is really talking to Mitch. Bateman reflects the hurt in his eyes. This is offset by the hysterical scenes throughout. Mitch as Dave insults Japanese Senior Partner Kinkabe stoic Lo Ming during merger negotiation. Dave as Mitch tells the stunning Sabrina captivating Olivia Wilde , "I haven't heard I word you said, since you took off your pants " Director David Dobkin "Wedding Crashers" uses a deceptive smoke screen: the blatant offensive humor. Underneath it all, "The Change-Up" is about the most important things in life—love, friendship, and family. In a touching and ridiculous story arc, Reynolds tells Bateman, "I'm proud of you " In a roundabout way, "The Change-Up" is about seeing the best in people, by keeping the past in the past. Reynolds and Bateman make this work seamlessly. Theirs is a true partnership. They are not imitating or mocking the other in the narrative body switch. You get the feel that they are authentically embodying the other's perceived persona.Leslie Mann is whimsical, sexy, and strong as Jamie-- the movie's emotional anchor. The "Thai food" joke from the trailer is way hotter in the movie. Mann is genius in balancing heartbreak and humor. Whether she is looking at Bateman singing the "dinner song"—he has no clue or holding hostage the babysitter with her story of her marriage woes. Olivia Wilde is stunningly gorgeous with impeccable comedic timing. She plays Sabrina, the legal assistant at Dave's law firm. She goes out to dinner with Reynolds, and tells him that she had a crush on Dave—he is really Dave. Later in a hysterical exchange, she says, "Are you breaking up with me?" She is joking.So the story ensues, Mitch Reynolds and Dave Bateman spiritually exchange bodies after urinating in a fountain with an eerie statue. Dave is the workaholic attorney hoping to make partner with his firm after managing a huge merger case for his firm. He lives in a great home, has a beautiful wife Jamie Mann and daughter Cara cute Sydney Rouviere and twin babies Peter and Sarah Luke and Lauren Bain . Mitch is the single struggling actor, who lives in a loft. Mitch has an awesome sex life. However, Mitch and Dave discover the fountain has been moved to a different location in the city. They don't know yet where. In the meantime, Mitch must complete Dave's big case with his partnership at stake. Dave must fulfill Mitch's role in "lorn", low grade soft porn, which requires Dave to perform the unthinkable with his thumb. There is also the sexual quandary. Mitch is now Dave, and sleeping with Jamie. Dave is now Mitch, going out with Sabrina, who always yearned for married Dave.Writers Lucas and Moore are bold and brilliant when half way through Mitch and Dave tell Jamie about the body switch. She hysterically dismisses them. So there is no idiot-plot here, at least out right. The crass comedy and the narrative catharsis don't always meld throughout. But hang in there. Reynolds, Bateman, Mann, and Wilde are awesome. "The Change-Up" veers wildly at times, but it has its heart in the right place.
I wasn't sure whether to watch this movie or not. It seemed medium good and you might think this is some "all been seen before" movie. But from what I can say it's definitely not. Only the main story is about the whole change up thing as in similar movies like "Freaky Friday". Most of these movies are about a mother and a daughter though. This one is about 2 good friends who have known each other for a long time but are yet completely different. One is the family guy, 3 kids, a wife, a house, a job as a lawyer. He got everything he ever could dream of. The other <more>
guy is nothing like this. No girlfriend, just affairs, a single apartment, he's still kind of a boy inside. When they get changed-up it's a total chaos! How should a single guy know how to take care of a whole family with 2 little babies? How is he supposed to know how to be a lawyer? Really funny moments there. The other one doesn't know anything about being single. Even though they both wanted this life they see how much it sucks for them. They step from one mistake to another and can't manage to do anything right at the beginning. And they also find out things about each other they never knew and things about themselves. All this in a really funny way. Only thing I didn't like was that the movie seemed to be endless. I felt like I spent 4 hours watching it cause some scenes might have been a little long. I wouldn't take out anything for the story nor the laughs though, so just -1 point for this.
Thanks to the fine people at Klout.com, I was able to get to see a rough cut of the movie "The Change-Up" starring Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds, and Leslie Mann she of Apatow fame. Hilarious. Much MUCH better than I expected. Of course, this is the type of film better seen with a filled theater.Of course it's a hard 'R' for vulgarity, nudity, and everything you expect in a sex-themed comedy. The trailers don't shy away from that.One always expects great comedic timing from the likes of Reynolds and Bateman. However, in these roles they truly do something different. <more>
Bateman gets to be the raunchy one. He finally gets to let loose. Reynolds holds back as the straight-laced guy who's more of a thinker.Leslie Mann was the true surprise in the film. I hope Judd Apatow watches this "The Change-Up" and realizes one thing; THIS is how you write for/use your wife in your films. Leslie can act! She takes the otherwise tiresome 'wife' role and turns it into something a little deeper.Olivia Wilde plays the unfortunate part of 'that girl.' She's not there to serve much purpose throughout the flick, but her story is summed up nicely. But sweet merciful GOD does she look fantastic with very dark hair! Anyway, it's a great flick. I suggest you go see it, you'll enjoy it. It's not your typical "body swap" movie ala "Freaky Friday," "Vice Versa," "Like Father, Like Son." plus I believe it has more heart than any of those three.
Defiantly not a cliché and unique for it's style (by omarh92)
This movie certainly is the full works, Ryan Reynolds, Jason Bateman, Leslie Mann and Olivia Wilde. All did phenomenon on their characters; being funny, loving, touching the crowds hearts, amusing them in every way possible. Many movies had the same same idea, 2 people switching bodies and they go through each others daily tasks and life. We have the same idea here but much more on detail on the daily life part, that is because it's not just daily life we are shown here we also see life turning or changing events a normal person must go through as well. What was also great about this <more>
movie was not just the amount of details shown on the daily life part but also how Ryan Reynolds did great playing Jason Bateman's character and Bateman doing the very same for Reynolds' character, the writer really did write the story and script for this indeed carefully. This is my favorite comedy of this year for sure. Usually when you enter a great movie, you feel like it passed by soo fast but this actually feels like a long 2 hours movie, which is enjoyable.
I saw this film in the theaters and enjoyed it enough to write this review which is my first on IMDb . Crass humor, sappy storyline, nothing exceptional to say the least . . . But, I loved it! If the humor wasn't so rude and the characters not so insensitive and shallow, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed this movie as much as I did. Half the fun was in watching these fellas on screen saying and doing stuff we wouldn't dream of doing in real life for fear of offending others or making fools of ourselves. Some scenes would have me squirming in awkward jaw-dropped discomfort while <more>
inwardly savoring the moment with a vicarious thrill.The lead actors, Jason Bateman & Ryan Reynolds, are also what made this film work as well as it did. They both brought their own particular brand of funny to the table and played off of each other quite well Bateman reminded me slightly of his Michael Bluth character in Arrested Development, mildly stuffy, uppity and wound up tight; while Reynolds' character was vaguely dry, arrogant and tactlessly self-involved I really enjoyed watching our lead protagonists switch roles and play as each other with believably unaffected skill.While not of great substance or profound moral quality Who cares! That's not why I'm watching a feel-good Saturday-night comedy anyway , the characters and the movie as a whole really endears itself to the audience. I walked away from the film with a smile possibly smirk on my face and a little lightness to my step. It's kind of like Freaky Friday with a mid-life crisis and we learn that yeah, the grass is always greener and even 30-something jerks can be lovably perfect just the way they are.
