Go See #TheChangeUp

Last night, the hubs and I went to see a sneak preview of The Change-up.

Hubs found free passes on a table at our gym so he snatched one up.

If you don’t already know, the movie is about two best friends, one is uber-successful and married (Jason Bateman) and one is a pot smoking out-of-work actor who never finishes anything (Ryan Reynolds). They both wish they had each others lives while out drinking one night and when they wake up the next morning…they do.

Oh, and Olivia Wilde is in it. She looks so hot in this movie I forgot I was heterosexual.

Too late.

I’ve gone to a bunch of sneak previews in the past and this is the first one that wasn’t sold out. I was surprised but it was also nice not to share an arm wrest with a dude 4x my size.

The interesting part about this sneak preview is we didn’t see the version that will be released to theatres. It was a preview to see what audiences thought so the movie could be changed before it’s released. So music could be changed, or a scene could be added or deleted.

Hubs and I both thought the movie was hilarious and touching. We were worried at first because there was an opening sequence with a baby and computer animation that was so stupid we thought we going to hate it. Luckily, the rest of it was great. That scene was just so out of place with the rest of the comedy. I liked it as much as Horrible Bosses. Hubs liked Horrible Bosses better but still thought it was great.

Oh, and Jason Bateman has a scene where he is 95% naked, so all you JB lovers out there have that to look forward to.

So, go check it out and let me know if they keep that first scene in the movie. Smile It comes out August 5th.

Are you seeing any movies this weekend?
