    Jason Bateman & Melissa McCarthy To Commit 'ID Theft'

    It has been one helluva summer for R-rated comedies with some big successes ("The Hangover Part II," "Bridesmaids," "Horrible Bosses") and some notable misses ("The Change-Up," "30 Minutes Or Less") and Jason Bateman has been on the receiving end of both. He was part of the ensemble who off their employers in 'Bosses' but opposite Ryan Reynolds, the duo couldn't compel audiences to come out to their bawdy body switching comedy. But Bateman is a savvy, smart guy who has certainly been around the industry for a long time, and now ready to move into producing, he has smartly snagged one of the season's biggest breakout stars to co-star with him ...

    Has An 'Arrested Development' Cast Member Accidentally Leaked The 'Meta' Plot Of The Movie?

    There was a while back there when rumors of an "Arrested Development" movie were numerous, but mostly added up to much ado about nothing. Every detail that emerged from the mouths of cast members sounded like wishful thinking -- a lot of talk about the script being written by 'AD' creator Mitchell Hurtwitz, but no discussion about shooting, releasing, directing or any concrete plans for the production of the movie. Hurwitz continued to focus on television for the most part but both "Sit Down, Shut Up" and "Running Wilde" were canceled by Fox, freeing up his time. And while all cast members have gone on to success after the show's three season...

    Point Counter-Point Review: 'The Change-Up' Is Gross-Out Unfunny Or Messy But With Amusing Laughs

    “The Change-Up” is nothing if not honest. Before the title card has even popped up on screen, Jason Bateman, playing a stressed out husband, father, and (pivotally) lawyer, gets poop sprayed onto his face and, seconds later, into his mouth. It’s a very gross gag very early on and sets the stage for ...

    David Dobkin Says 'The Change-Up' Isn't Exactly 'Face/Off' Or 'Freaky Friday'

    CGI Babies, The Freedom Of The R-Rating & More We Learned From Jason Bateman & Ryan Reynolds About the Body-Switching ComedyThis weekend sees the release of another candidate for the R-rated comedy of the summer: bro-rific body-switcheroo film “The Change-Up.” Starring Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds, the story centers on two friends living polar opposite lives; Bateman as Dave, a family man and lawyer on the rise, and Reynolds as Mitch, his best friend, who makes a meager living as an actor, but mostly uses his charisma and physique to bang anything with two legs. After a night of drinking the two friends -- ahem -- relieve themselves, in w...

    Jason Bateman Joins Vince Vaughn In ‘Insane Laws’ Directed By 'The Break-Up' Writer

    Well, this pairing was rather inevitable, was it not? Take wild man Vince Vaughn and team him up with straight man Owen Wilson (oh wait, that's been done), uhh, Kevin James, errr, well you get the picture. This time, Vaughn's foil for his latest comedic vehicle "Insane Laws" will be none other than ...

    First Look At Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston & Colin Farrell As The 'Horrible Bosses'

    We're heading towards a veritable cluster-fuck of foul-mouthed comedies this summer, with "Bridesmaids" already picking up good buzz from SXSW, and "The Hangover 2" following swiftly behind, with "The Change-Up," "30 Minutes or Less," "Friends With Benefits" and "Bad Teacher" bringing up the rear. W...

    Review: 'Paul' Delivers A Funny, Touching, Rewarding Journey

    From The Playlist U.K.: The pubs of London are littered with the carcasses of British comedy stars who weren't able to convert their TV success to the big screen. Countless sitcom actors made awkward, unfunny film debuts, and even big names like Ricky Gervais and Steve Coogan have mostly tripped ove...

    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."
