Quick Review: The Change-Up
So, it's not such a great summer for Ryan Reynolds, is it? "Green Lantern" was a disappointment and so was "The Change-Up," in which he and Jason Bateman undergo a body switch. Reynolds, as the single slacker actor, and Bateman, as the married-with-kids workaholic lawyer, aren't bad actors but they need better material than this. There are some gross-out moments and a few fun bits, but mostly it's a predictable tale in which they're forced to live each other's lives and learn the obvious lesson that the grass isn't actually greener on the other side of the fence. My grade: C-plus.
