This film surprised the shit out of me in terms of how well directed the action was. The script is a bit convoluted, and a few performances fall completely flat. Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Jay Baruchel, Michael K. Williams, and the hilarious Samuel L. Jackson rise above the mediocre script and Joel Kinnaman, while given so little dialogue gives a solid performance. Overall, it is a great rental.
You have no idea how surprised I am. "Date and Switch" is a charming and completely refreshing teen film. It's honestly written, naturally performed(I expect big things from Nicholas Braun and Dakota Johnson), and really funny at times. But it's not especially memorable or constantly funny like "Superbad" was, but it's much more entertaining, heartwarming, and honest than "American Pie" was. A delightful surprise.
