Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds want each others lives in the red band trailer for The Change-Up

Apr. 20, 2011by: Niki Stephens

So is it funny when Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds switch bodies? Of course!

In the new red band trailer for THE CHANGE-UP, Dave (Jason Bateman) wishes he had a life more like his best friend, Mitch (Ryan Reynolds). The married life as begun to get stale, with no surprises to offer him. Mitch wishes his life was more stable. Being alone all the time gets old after awhile. So one night when the two friends go out for drinks, something crazy happens. Apparently when you piss with your buddy in a fountain, you switch lives. Thank God they didn't do that in VICE VERSA. Awkward.

The trailer is great, especially the bit at the end with Leslie Mann. That's real life, ladies and gentlemen. Check it out below along with the debut poster.

"Growing up together, Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) and Dave (Jason Bateman) were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed theyve slowly drifted apart. While Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three, Mitch has remained a single, quasi-employed man-child who has never met a responsibility he liked. To Mitch, Dave has it all: beautiful wife Jamie (Leslie Mann), kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm. To Dave, living Mitchs stress free life without obligation or consequence would be a dream come true. Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Daves worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each others bodies and proceed to freak the &*#@ out. Despite the freedom from their normal routines and habits, the guys soon discover that each others lives are nowhere near as rosy as they once seemed. Further complicating matters are Daves sexy legal associate, Sabrina (Olivia Wilde), and Mitchs estranged father (Alan Arkin). With time not on their side, Mitch and Dave comically struggle to avoid completely destroying each others lives before they can find a way to get their old ones back."

Looks hilarious

I love Jason Bateman. I just watched all three seasons of Arrested Development in one week. And this is the kind of roll Reynolds was meant to play. Must see.

Pretty damn funny. Good to see Bateman playing a different character.

Hahaha, I'm so going to watch this. That last shot of Bateman by the end of the trailer was just "WTF". Plus, Olivia Wilde is in. Extra tidbit: Daniel Craig - he's James Bond, filmed Cowboys & Aliens with Wilde. Or maybe Ryan Reynolds.

This is fucking awesome. It's like if Tom Hanks' BIG and Cage/Travola's Face/OFF fucked each other and made a comedy.

After being ruined for your highness and tons of other movies before it, I've decided to stop watching comedy trailers. I'll check this out probably based on the write up, actors, etc.

I was worried when I first heard about this but the trailer has put all my worries to rest. This movie will be awesome.

Also, Olivia Wilde as hot secretary? Mother may I.

Sold

"Olivia Wilde as a sexy secretary" and I was sold.

Perfect actors for the two main roles, seems like. But really, Olivia Wilde. I could watch this on mute.

"No man is that hungry".

"I've never even heard of any of these things."

"That's cause you're married."

Looks hilarious!

The trailer was great. Reynolds looks hilarious in this and he will probably be the best character.

Reynolds and Bateman look like they will have great comedic chemistry with one another and Olivia Wilde looks sexy as hell in this.

This movie is one of my most anticipated films of the summer and it looks like a great time.
