The comedy has released a red-band trailer that leans heavily on profanity and shows a fully-naked Bateman observing his genitalia with a hand-held mirror.
This summer, there will be a new classic switched-up movie starring Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds hitting the theaters. "The Change-Up" is a comedy in which a married guy accidentally and by supernatural power switches bodies with his womanizer best friend.
Growing up together, Mitch (Reynolds) and Dave (Bateman) were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed they've slowly drifted apart. While Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three, Mitch has remained a single, quasi-employed man-child who has never met a responsibility he liked.
To Mitch, Dave has it all: beautiful wife Jamie (Leslie Mann), kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm. To Dave, living Mitch's stress free life without obligation or consequence would be a dream come true. Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Dave's worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each other's bodies.
Despite the freedom from their normal routines and habits, the guys soon discover that each other's lives are nowhere near as rosy as they once seemed. Further complicating matters are Dave's sexy legal associate, Sabrina (Olivia Wilde), and Mitch's estranged father (Alan Arkin). With time not on their side, Mitch and Dave comically struggle to avoid completely destroying each other's lives before they can find a way to get their old ones back.
From the director of "Wedding Crashers", "The Change-Up" would be released in the U.S. August 5 under Universal Pictures.
