Leslie Mann Joins Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman in "The Change Up" 


Remember those body-swapping films from the 80s? "Like Father Like Son," "Switch," "Big." Well, the body-swapping genre is apparently alive and well, and Universal is teaming Ryan Reynolds with Jason Bateman for the comedy "The Change" from director David Dobkin. Leslie Mann is joining the pair in the lead female role.

I can see many formulas littering our big-screen when this film opens. But the script is written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the guys who gave us one of the funniest films ever made, "The Hangover." So there may be hope.

The plot revolves around a family man who accidentally switches bodies with his best friend, a slacker actor. And then redemption follows, the end. Didn't Mann just star in the recent body-swap film "17 Again?" She must really, really love the genre!
