Movie Preview: The Change-Up

Thanks to omy.sg and United International Pictures (UIP), the hubby and I got to catch the movie preview of the comedy The Change-Up held at GV Grand (Great World City)!

From the director of Wedding Crashers, the writers of The Hangover and the producer of Click, 'The Change-Up' features a star-studded cast which includes Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal, Green Lantern), Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses), Leslie Mann (Funny People), Olivia Wilde (Cowboys & Aliens) and Alan Arkin.

Here's the Official Trailer:

The story basically revolves around two best friends Mitch (Reynolds) and Dave (Bateman) who wished they had the other's life. Mitch was envious of Dave's beautiful wife Jamie (Mann), kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm while Dave envied Mitch's stress free life without obligation or consequence. Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Dave's worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each other's bodies!

The fact that this movie was about a married and a single man exchanging bodies made me excited to watch it. Plus there's also my favourite hot eye candy, if ya know what I'm saying (Reynolds, duh!).

The Change-Up

This movie is rated M-18, so you can expect a lot and I mean a lot of adult content such as nudity, swearing and sexual references. This is also perhaps the reason why, when asked if he preferred this movie or Johnny English Reborn, the hubby answered that he preferred this one.

This is definitely a movie for the guys. Especially the married ones =)

Aside from a few pretty disturbing scenes, I kind of really like the moral of the story behind this movie, which was to treasure what you have (I know, I know, it's kind of like the moral of every similar plot but still a great moral don't you think? *laughs*).

As usual, the storyline is predictable (duh, what do you really expect?) and the ending cheesy, but the movie was also really funny and entertaining!

And last but not least, the poop in Dave's face (as seen in the trailer) is not real lah please! Baby's poop, especially that of a breastfed baby, does not look like chocolate. Duh -_-"

Catch 'The Change-Up' when it opens in cinemas on 6th October 2011!

Disclosure: A pair of complimentary movie tickets were received from omy.sg and UIP for the purposes of this movie review. No monetary compensation was received; all opinions are my own.
