Directed by David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers), written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (The Hangover). Starring Ryan Reynolds, Jason Batemen, Olivia Wilde, and Leslie Mann.
Yes it’s a body switching movie. Yes, this isn’t anything new. But can you resist the uptight Batemen swapping with the loose and charming Reynolds? You have to admit it’s good casting. And it’s R rated which is always a plus (though I could have done without the red band gags in the trailer (towards the end)). Not to mention from the director and writers’ past credits.
Verdict: may not be there opening weekend but am interested and think it could pleasantly surprise, if it doesn’t get trite in its concept. Which it most likely will.
