The combination of Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds is a great one that really works. The concept of switching bodies/lives has been done many times before but the two main characters - and the actors who play them make it refreshing. Jason's dry wit and Ryan's goofy antics make for amusing moments. A movie that will provide many laughs - in an adult humour sort of way.
Gee, this movie must have been written by teenage boys because the script was terrible. How does a quality cast like that get involved with trashy stuff like this. NOT funny at all !!!!!!!!
Dismal disappointment. Crude humour based on titty jokes, constant swearing, poo and pee but with no wit whatsoever. The script writer should be shot. I really like these two actors - wtf were they thinking being part of this!
funny stupid kinda movie... good to watch... LOL moments. Alright for a comedy date night for a couple who have kids and that one 'special' friend in their life LMAO
More a man's film, lot's of four letter words and men's jokes. Crude.
What a poor poor movie... Do 30 something men swear like that, they aren't exactly in the ghetto ? The story was stupid, but we already knew it would be, it's just that is was written so badly and performed even worse. Going to watch Freaky Friday to remind what a film of this genre can be like.
Stopped watching after 25 mins.
Some funny moments when it's not trying too hard to gross out or go for the shock laugh. Good to see Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman both switching up their schticks. I'm so sick of Leslie Mann playing the same role - the unfulfilled housewife who cries a lot.
My favorite so far..super funny from start to finish.
Don't miss out on this movie. :)
Often funny. A lot of toilet humor. Well performed. Predictable and unrealistic, but suspend disbelief and go with it. Comes up with quite a touching story in the end.
Best film I've seen for a looong time. Get past the 'swapping lives' genre and this is an unexpected gem. So much so that when I spoke to friends about this film they all said that it was by far one of their faves - and I had never even heard of it! The humour is witty and fresh. So many scenes are laugh out loud - not in the slightest bit corny or predictable. I absolutely loved it. In fact I want to buy it and have it in my film collection it's that good. Honest. Go on I dare you...
Bad language - is it necessary? Didn't live up to my expectations.
Absolute rubbish! There are a few funny moments but they are clouded by all the swearing and filthy sex scenes. A real waste of a really good cast.
A fun, entertaining film when you're up for a bit of visual 'junk food'. Bateman is hilarious being a jerk and Reynolds is lovable as always. A good film for a lazy Saturday night.
Absolutely loved it, would see it over and over. But I love the actors and it's my kind of movie.
Enjoyed this flick but too much swearing.
Absolutely rubbish. After 10 minutes we gave up!
There are less than a handful of movies I have walked out on in the cinema or not watched all the way through when renting the DVD - THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE DISGUSTING, "TURN IT OFF NOW", and CRINGE-WORTHY MOVIE I'VE EVER SEEN. I didn't get past the scene where the body change has occurred and Ryan Reynolds' character goes into the all-important client meeting as Jason Bateman's character and completely trashes the meeting. Ryan's character swears in every sentence up to that point. In the "out-takes" in the extras section, Ryan Reynolds says he's uncomfortable in doing one of the scenes - so why did he sign on for the movie? For actors, "You're only as good as your last movie" and his last two movies - this SHOCKER and "The Green Lantern" - would pretty much have undone the good work he's done in his previous movies. He's going to have to work hard to get back into good movies.
This is not even worth a 0/5 rating.
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY BORROWING THIS.
Loved it! Very, very funny movie.
definitely a teenage movie, too much "off" material for our liking.
Terrible. Don't waste your time. I switched it off after 30 mins.
Really enjoyed watching this movie,had lots of laugh!one to watch!
This is one of those movies where the shorts make it look it might be good, but its NOT!!! Storyline been done to death in all different ways, outcome inevitable, swearing really bad. Don't bother with this one!
Well cast, fantastic acting and some funny bits. Unfortunately the frequent foul language spoilt it. Shame it wasn't made into an M rating movie to appeal to a wider audience because it had real potential.
To be perfectly honest, my wife and I didn't hold high hopes for this genre of movie. I'm so glad we watched it, this is the funniest movie I have seen this year. My ribs were aching at the end of it... Gut wrenchingly funny!!!
Some funny bits, overall a bit on the boring side of life...
some funny points in this movie. generally boring but the acting is fantastic. They have great chemistry together. well cast.
pathetic, yet somehow intriguing. watchable.
This movie was okay but a bit confusing at times.
Typical body swap comedy with life long morals earned from the experience. Still worth watching though - has some funny bits and there have been worse movies made based on the same idea. Plus Jason Bateman is always entertaining.
We did not stop laughing throughout this movie - it was hilarious! Freaky Friday for the Bro's! Don't expect cinematic excellence, just a great laugh!
Great Movie !!!!!! Laugh after laugh
A very funny movie but not one for young children. A lot of swearing and some nudity. My teenagers loved it.
I can't believe this movie has the star rating it does. One of the worst movies I've seen in I can't remember how long! Just didn't find it particularly funny and couldn't have cared less what happened to any of the characters in it.
The swearing and unnecessary nudity and crassness ruined what could have been a funny movie.
Havn't laughed so hard in years! Great movie, especially if you have kids!!
Turned it off half way through... Jason Bateman is so much better than this. Bromance smut at it's most clich?.
Pretty hilarious. Lots of swearing and it was pretty crude so if your not into that, probably don't add it to your queue, however I liked it. Good easy movie to watch and I always enjoy a fun body swap movie. Ryan Reynolds is awesome!
Had some funny moments but nothing original or side-splitting here (except maybe the fountain idea).
Surprisingly funny for the typical body switch storey line.
Very funny if you don't mind dirty humor, good entertaining flick.
Looks like a comedy for couples but is really targetted for married men with kids. A lot of swearing and crude moments but made me laugh.
It's an old concept but this movie still manages to be entertaining with some really funny parts.
crack up but slow in some parts
The 1st half of the movie was wrong in so many ways and the characters behaved like absolute morons! Thankfully, the 2nd half of the movie improved somewhat but still not enough for me to give it more than 2 stars.....
Dave is a married man with two kids and a loving wife , and Mitch is a single man who is at the prime of his sexual life. One fateful night while Mitch and Dave are peeing in a fountain when lightning strikes and they switch bodies. This is one hilarious movie. Excellent
Excellent! Very entertaining.
Absolutely WOEFUL, it must have been written by a 12 year old boy! Jason Bateman & Ryan Reynolds should hang their heads in shame. 0/10
A blokey change places film - surprisingly better than most I've endured before.
Entertaining and funny but a bit crass to fully enjoy, definitely more leaning towards boys humor.
So very funny, not just the usual cliche jokes some of the past body swap movies have had.
Wasn't sure what to expect however found this to be a very funny movie. Would watch it again.
quite enjoyable,very funny in places
Absolute gutter entertainment. This should have been a good movie but it is spoilt by coarse language, vulgar, rude, sex scenes and themes. Its the same old cosmic/supernatural body changing scenario only this time with long time school friends, one a busy married man with a hectic business and home life envies his bachelor, free living and loving irresponsible best firends life style and vise versa, so they 'pee' in a fountain and life takes a strange turn.
Cruder than I expected but funny as well.
Not very happy with the continual coarse language would have been a good movie.Jason Bateman can play any role and make it work but this film did not suit him.
Was a good storyline though and funny.
More pornographic then expected or needed to be. The best bits were shown on the adverts for the movie, the rest was low grade and smuty. Not one I would even say was worth bothering with. So disappointed.
We thought this movie was hilarious! Lots of laughs throughout the movie.
To crude,but parts were good.
Highlight of this movie was Craig Bierko as the foreign film director - story line has been done before - this is just the dirty version (choice of adult version of "in theatres" version on DVD - couple of funny scenes
Loved it I laughed straight from the beginning to the absolute end. Hilarious
Really loved this movie. Had some pretty funny moments. The baby changing scene first up in the movie had me in stitches.
Not as good as I expected. A few laughs, some crude scenes/jokes. Definitely a guy's movie.
Better than what I thought it would be, had quite a few funny moments.
Very Funny and good but was spoilt because it was so crude in parts. I wouldn't watch it again as it was just bad taste. A pity.
We all know how this type of movie goes, swap bodies, funny funny funny, learn some life lessons, all back to normal. Even though you know exactly what's coming there are some pretty funny moments/lines in this movie. The second half of the movie is a bit slow but overall an enjoyable movie. My hubby is a pain to watch movies with but he had a few laughs so I take that as a thumbs up on his behalf.
Not done very well, I was expecting alot better
Awesome movie. Now a favourite, very funny!
Great cast but they tried too hard with the gross gags and not hard enough to get the really fun belly laughs happening. Even though this idea has been done to death it still could have been much better.
Not as good as I thought it would be, but had some funny parts.
Actors are great and a few funny bits but a pretty lame movie in all
This movie was really funny! A lot better than I expected it to be. Highly recommended, just don't watch it with the kiddies! :o)
I love Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman, but I was so disappointed with this movie! What possessed them to both sign on to this flick? A few funny parts, but it's just your typical body-swap flick. One star just for my eternal fan-love of Ryan and Jason.
i actually had a few laughs from this movie. really liked it, ryan reynolds is a comic genius
