Two pals get to switch lives in the most literal sense in this sometimes more-crass-than-amusing comedy from director David Dobkin - who put his first big imprint on the genre with "Wedding Crashers" - and "The Hangover" writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.
Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman play, respectively, a carefree fellow and a family-man lawyer whose shared wish comes true when they wake up from a binge occupying each other's body. Each proceeds to get a true feel for what the other's experience is. Leslie Mann, Olivia Wilde and Alan Arkin also star. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Dobkin; deleted scenes; outtakes. ** (R and unrated versions: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
