Leslie Mann, Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds
Dave and Mitch are best friends. Dave is a career man, married with young children. Mitch is a would-be actor and lothario. On one fateful night they wish for each other’s lives while peeing in a fountain together. They wake up in each other’s bodies and have to lead each other’s lives. They are freaked out at first, but then settle into it, and get to know more intimate things about each other.
This is a common rom com theme – trading places. We’ve seen it before, but this film does quite a fresh job with it. There are a few cringe-worthy remarks about women, but generally there is quite a bit of light humour and laugh-out-loud moments. Worth a watch on Saturday night.
