"Go Get 'Em Lantern!" This Profanity-Fueled Change-Up Promo is Almost Guaranteed to Be Better than the Film

That headline is not a slight against The Change-Up, which I haven't seen yet, as much as it's a compliment on how terrific this promo is. If the same people who wrote this promo wrote The Change-Up, then it's very possible we could be looking at the funniest movie since Bridesmaids.

More likely, however, is that this is Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman riffing, mocking the premise of their film, ("Body switching is a pretty stupid idea"), and hurling an insane amount of obscenities ("It's wall-to-wall dick jokes.") Honestly, screw the movie: Just put these two guys in a room for 90 minutes with white suits and a couple of stools. I'd sooner pay to see that movie (which is not to say I won't be paying to see The Change-Up. Stupid premise or not, it's Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds, plus like 72 percent of the known world, I have a guilty fondness for body-switching movies that I'd never confess to anyone in public. Or on a website. And that's absolutely not what I'm doing here. And no, I've never seen Vice Versa. Four times. )
