Careful what you wish for; THE CHANGE-UP (15, 112 mins) 5/10.
Dedication to his job has dulled his marriage to wife Jamie (Leslie Mann) and taken him away from his three children. Dave's best friend Mitch Planko (Ryan Reynolds) is a fast-talking, jobbing actor, who ricochets from one meaningless sexual encounter to the next.
One drunken night, the two bemoan their lots and proclaim, "I wish I had your life," as they urinate in a fountain. The next morning, Dave and Mitch are trapped in each other's bodies and have no obvious way to change back.
Mitch as Dave must complete a multi-million dollar contract negotiation, while Dave as Mitch must star in an adult film directed by Valtan (Craig Bierko) and woo legal colleague Sabrina (Olivia Wilde).
