The Change-Up Reviews
November 30, 2020
Jumps right into bizarre, foul humor to lure audiences in with pure shock.

The sad thing here is that there's a terrific film trying to find its way to the surface.
August 5, 2020
A gross-out comedy that masquerades as a tale about finding one's true place in life.

No longer will bros have to wonder what it would be like if two dudes, two dudes with polar opposite personalities and lives, switched places with each other for a short time!

For audiences in need of a boost, "God Bless the Broken Road" might offer just enough of a payoff to justify a few rough patches.

Reynolds tries and if you find him or this sort of teen-bop movie appealing, you may find something to enjoy. If you're repulsed by both, I suggest avoiding Dobkin's latest effort like the plague.

Although the lack of originality of the concept really brings down its appeal, audiences will enjoy watching this recycled story unfold with the two newest performances.

If you still enjoy the sort of bathroom humor that had you in hysterics back in grade school, this movie delivers those juvenile gags (in every sense of the word) in droves.

R-rated comedies these days, like 'The Hangover' and 'Bad Santa,' employ a relentless bombardment of cheap, gross toilet humor and nonstop cursing -- because it usually works.
June 22, 2013
Cynical, tone-deaf junk that has nothing to contribute to the world but smirks and a general dismissive attitude toward human connection and interaction.

The Change-Up is a comedy that can't find it's proper place in the demographic of anyone by freakishly pushing the boundaries of taste.

It's easy to recommend The Change-Up for its over-the-top laughs and a pair of solid leads that succeed in offering a raunchy twist on a familiar formula.
January 29, 2012
A foul misfire that favors sex and gross-out gags over its somewhat affecting plot about married life and single life, and the sacrifices we all make for one or the other.
January 27, 2012
The finale is shockingly flat, everything petering out in such a forgettable and joyless manner the effect is frustrating.

The key to the film is the chemistry between Reynolds and Bateman, who work off each other but can also be very funny in their own scenes.
January 3, 2012
Luckily (Bateman and Reynolds') comic timing is convincing, otherwise this would be a total waste of time.

The posters promise a film from the director of Wedding Crashers (David Dobkin) and the writers of The Hangover (Jon Lucas/Scott Moore). Pure rubbish ( ... ) would have been more accurate.
