The body-swap comedy gets a mighty shake-up here, with Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman cheerfully breaking all the boundaries of taste. As single, bed-hopping stoner Mitch, Reynolds makes pal Dave (Bateman) question his own life choices - changing nappies and doing "dialogue night" with the missus (a brilliantly dry Leslie Mann). The stars are cast in familiar roles, but the beauty of the genre is that they mostly play against type, and actually become more likeable when lost in each other's bodies. With a script from the writers of
, the gags often go below the belt, seeing each man fumble with a different routine and different women. Fortunately, director David Dobkin (
) has a knack for such silliness and, though he can't resist a final tug on the heartstrings, it's the laughs that'll make your eyes water.
Laidback ladies man Mitch secretly envies best friend Dave's life as a husband and father, while Dave in turn longs for Mitch's lack of responsibility. During a drunken night out, they confess their desire to switch places - but when the wish is magically granted, they each find the other's routine is not as simple as it looks. Comedy, starring Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds.
