    No matter Bateman and Reynolds make The Change-Up seem a lot better than it is. Each earns a star in my review. The movie would be literally nothing without them. show more

    The film is often funny and even more frequently vulgar, exploiting every last chance for raunch in the full-chassis exchange of two grown men. The only thing missing: male nudity. show more

    This movie was an excuse for gratuitous female nudity that didn\'t serve to make the plot any more interesting. As a woman, T and A doesn\'t make me find a movie more enjoyable, and actually only alienates me since there was no male nudity throughout the entirety. The two main characters exhibited nothing but selfish behavior until the last five minutes of the movie, making them totally unlikeable. I\'m glad I didn\'t waste my money at the theater on this one!
