Change Up is a story of two men who had been best friends since their early childhood but as time goes by, they have drifted apart. Dave (Jason Bateman) becomes an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three children while Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) has remained single and never had a real responsibility in life.
One day, after a drinking spree, their life changed when they pee on a fountain who later turned out to be magical, their soul mixed up. Mitch become Dave and Dave became Mitch and that is the start of the trouble for the two.
The story is very light and humorous and only tackles the story of the two best friends. Although I had fun watching the movie, I felt that there is still something missing on it and needs more improvement. Maybe, that’s the same reason why the movie had poor reviews. Too sad for Reynolds because I do really like him as an actor.
Produced and Directed by David Dobkin.
