  • Excerpt: The Film The body-switching genre is certainly nothing new. In fact, there have been so many of these "I wish I had your life" movies, that yes, it's actually a genre. There are some good ones ( Freaky Friday ) and some bad ( Like Father, Like Son ).

AV Club
4 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Before establishing Jason Bateman ’s character as an overachiever of Obama-like dimensions, the ridiculous new body-switch comedy The Change-Up feels the need to drop a giant clump of baby shit into his mouth. Before it can build Bateman up, it must first tear him down.

Review: ‘The Change-Up’

Variety
2 August 2011
  • Summary: If "Freaky Friday" had an impudent, foul-mouthed little brother, it would be "The Change-Up," an often needlessly crass, bromance-oriented spin on the body-swap comedy.
