Written By

Written By

The Change Up premiered starring Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds as, respectively, a married-with-children and a single ladies man who swap bodies while pissing in a fountain.  The idea of walking around in someone else’s shoes is certainly a mantra that has been around a long time and (especially in the late 1980’s) a plot […]
