Movie Reviews

One Guy's Opinion - 9/10 by Frank SwietekA particularly gruesome example of the sort of raunchy R-rated comedy that's proliferated in Hollywood...it's as though [the] scripters were determined to amp up the coarseness and vulgarity with each change of scene.
HitFix - 9/10 by Drew McWeenyIt's possible this sub-"Three's Company" level farce will hit you harder in the funny bone than it did me, but I think as a film, it's just sort of a grand mess, regardless of if it's funny or not.
EricDSnider.com - 9/10 by Eric D. SniderThe perverse humor and outrageous scenarios made me laugh often enough to recommend the movie, but I'm disappointed that it didn't explore the potential in an R-rated body-swap comedy more carefully.
Screen It! - 9/10 by Teddy DurginThe gross-out gags, potty humor, and raunchy dialogue piled up almost as if all who had a hand in making the movie had no faith in the characters or the actors playing them (Full Content Parental Review also available)
Deadspin - 9/10 by Will LeitchCynical, tone-deaf junk that has nothing to contribute to the world but smirks and a general dismissive attitude toward human connection and interaction.
TheMovieReport.com - 8/10 by Michael DequinaJason Bateman's famously quirky comic energy cuts loose in an unusually and hilariously fresh way.
CinemaBlend.com - 8/10 by Joshua TylerOne of the funniest movies of the summer.
ComingSoon.net - 8/10 by Edward DouglasA talented cast and a strong last act is ultimately what saves The Change-Up from being a dud, though you'll have to endure a lot of lazy gross-out humor before you get to that point.
Associated Press - 8/10 by Christy Lemire[It's] all over the place in tone, veering awkwardly from some daring comic moments to feel-good sappiness and back again in hopes of redeeming some semblance of edginess.
Variety - 8/10 by Justin ChangWhile the reliable Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman wring some laughs from a creaky but durable setup... the script takes R-rated gross-out humor to such forced extremes that its later bid for sentimental sweetness feels disingenuous and unearned.
