DVD Review: The Change Up
You spent your CGI money on what?
Olivia Wilde and Leslie Mann have CGI nipples in this movie. That's right, they can fake nudity. I'm sure there's a logical reason for it, like how Jessica Alba won't be completely nude due to her religion, yet makes directors go through painstaking camera angles to show "just enough." I just think the idea is so stupid. If you don't want to be nude, don't do it, re-write it, re-cast it. Why waste your CGI money on something like that when you could've used it towards those God-awful babies that made Baby Geniuses' look like a masterpiece.
Working dad Dave (Jason Bateman) and playboy slacker Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) are old buddies that piss in a magical fountain and suddenly switch bodies. Now they must find this fountain (it's been moved) and pee in it again to get themselves back to normal. Pretty standard.
I figured this movie might have a few laughs, but it didn't. Not even Ryan Reynold's flawless physique could save this disaster. It wasn't funny, the effects were crap, and the plot is beyond recycled. I don't look forward to the day when they do CGI dongs.
