The Change-Up (3.5)
(Watch the Trailer)
This movie was waaaay more hilarious than I thought it would be. I felt like this was a really lame idea for a script and that the whole change-up thing had been already done time and time again, which it has, but some how they figured out a way to make this movie funny.
I think it had a lot to do with Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern, The Proposal, Buried) and Jason Batman (Horrible Bosses . These two together are hilarious. They are naturally quite different people and when put into their separate characters they fit the mold perfectly. Without them this movie would've probably sucked hard, they were both equal parts funny.
I was laughing pretty hard for a lot of the scenes. Some of the emotional scenes were really painful, mostly any of the scenes with Leslie Mann. Sorry lady, but you were painful to watch any time you were crying or complaining or anything. Yikes. No idea why but she just really sucked in this movie.
This movie is kind of stupid but I still laughed and found it entertaining. Some of the lines especially had me laughing really hard. If you're looking for a light and slightly ridiculous comedy then this is the movie for you.
