Ryan Reynolds can hardly believe it…he’s in a movie with Jason Bateman. OK, we’re being a bit silly, but you’ll understand the look on his face once you dig on the premise for “The Change-Up.”
It’s sort of a “Freaky Friday” deal that follows a married man (Bateman) who switches bodies with his slacker best friend (Reynolds), but the supporting talent in front and behind the camera is pretty ace. “The Hangover” scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore wrote the screenplay with David Dobkin (“Wedding Crashers“) directing. Olivia Wilde, Leslie Mann and Alan Arkin are among the supporting cast. Not bad.
“The Change-Up” will try and finish off your summer with some laffs when it opens on August 5th.
