The Change-Up, starring Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman, coming to Blu-ray in November
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Aside from BRIDESMAIDS, one of the better R-rated comedies this summer was the Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds body-swap comedy THE CHANGE-UP. Sure, it’s a little juvenile to revisit the body-swap genre that was so famous in the 80’s, but Bateman and Reynolds are hilarious and they’re uber-popular at the moment, so it made sense to put them together. The film was only moderately successful, maybe because this was the second movie of the summer for both stars. But if you missed it in theaters, then you’ll be able to catch it when it hits Blu-ray on November 8th. Of course, it’s an R-rated comedy, so it will have an un-rated version on the release.
As for special features, the disc will have a commentary by David Dobkin, deleted scenes, two featurettes and a gag reel. The film stars Ryan Reynolds, Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde, Leslie Mann and Alan Arkin.
