To enter the contest to win tickets, just leave a comment on this post and tell us about your favorite movie that involves switching bodies!

The screening will take place Tuesday, August 2 at 7 p.m. at Sierra Vista 16 in Clovis. You have until Sunday, July 31 at Midnight to leave a comment. Winners will be contacted by email so use a real one! Check out the trailer below and the synopsis after the break.


Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman star in The Change-Up, from director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers), writers Jon Lucas & Scott Moore (The Hangover) and producer Neal Moritz (Fast & Furious, Click). The R-rated comedy takes the traditional body-switching movie, ties it up tightly and throws it off a cliff.

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 and proceed to freak the &*#@ out.

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.

THE CHANGE-UP has been rated R (Restricted – Under 17 Requires Accompanying Parent or Adult Guardian) for pervasive strong crude sexual content and language, some graphic nudity and drug use.

  1. Duh?! Vice Versa – Fred Savage. You know you like it! Is there any other movie about switching worth watching??? The answer is ….no.

  2. Freaky Friday with Jaime lee Curtis & lindsay lohan. Funny to see Jaime lee Curtis act like a teen :)

  3. I really liked Freaky Friday, the two actresses Lohan and Curtis do an outstanding job.  That movie had me laughing from start to finish :D

  4. Dose Face Off count as a switched movie?  Cuz that is one of my favorit movies of all time, but if not I did like a little movie called Wish a Pond a Star with Katherine Heigl. It was the cuties little movie :)

  5. I love love love movies that involve swapping bodies!  My favorites include:  18 Again, Prelude to a Kiss, Switch, Skeleton Key, Like Father like Son, Vice Versa, Freaky Friday & The Hot Chick.

    Is it worth mentioning that I had advance screening tickets to see this movie last Thu 7/21, but after standing in line (in the hot sun) we were turned away (along with about 50 people behind us) because the theater was way overbooked and had reached capacity?  Talk about disappointed! :(  Thanks for another opportunity!

  6. Can’t wait to see it.  This sounds like mega- laugh- a- thon, which is just what I need:) Thanks!!

  7. The hot chick is a good one but I must addmit freaky friday is my fav. with the crazy grandpa & switching of the mother & daughter? But I’m really hopeing this one will beat the rest!!! come on Ryan Reynolds & Jason Bateman!?! :D

  8. The 1st Freaky Friday with Jodi Foster was the best. Although the remake with Jaime Lee Curtis wasn’t too bad

  9. Reynolds is always good, he brings a certain playfulness to his roles. Bateman was hilarious in Arrested Development, I always felt that he never received enough credit for his role on Arrested Development. 

  10. Proposal is a funny movie with Ryan Reynolds as well, and if you have seen that one, then you know Ryan Reynolds is one funny guy.

  11. I love that two of my favorite “eye candy” actors are in a movie together.  Even though it is a familiar story, I’m sure that they will put a new modern twist to it. I’m looking forward to Jason Bateman playing the single guy for a while, since we usually see him playing the dad. Another funny movie to check out is Horrible Bosses…very funny.
