We travel to Atlanta, Georgia to visit the set of this body-switching comedy and talked to executive producer Ori Marmur and writer Jon LucasTo be perfectly honest with you, when I first heard about the upcoming Universal Pictures comedy {0}, I was rather skeptical, even with some A-list talent attached in front of and behind the camera. It's a body-switching movie, which evoked 1980s memories of movies such as {1}, {2}, and even {3}, to a certain extent. It's a genre we haven't seen explored in years, with the last prominent example being the Disney remake {4}, which launched {5} into the stratosphere of stardom. The folks at Universal Pictures invited me to the set of {6} back in January of this year, and, despite my initial trepidations about the movie, which opens in theaters nationwide on August 5, I was sold on the comedy after leaving the set.

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 H. 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.
