The Change Up Bluray

A family man and a womanizer realize the grass isn’t always greener, when these lifelong friends suddenly find themselves thrown into the good, the bad and the outrageous of each other’s lives in The Change-Up available on Blu-ray™ and DVD, both featuring the theatrical and never-before-seen unrated version, on November 8, 2011 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Despite having grown up together, these two couldn’t lead more different lives today; Dave (Jason Bateman, Horrible Bosses, Hancock) is a workaholic lawyer, husband and father of three, while ladies’ man Mitch (Ryan Reynolds, Green Lantern, The Proposal) lives a single and virtually responsibility free existence.

Over a few too many drinks one night Mitch conveys his envy of Dave’s situation complete with beautiful wife Jamie (Leslie Mann, Seventeen Again, Knocked Up), adoring kids and prestigious career, while Dave admits his own jealousy over Mitch’s stress free, laidback lifestyle. Hilarity ensues in the hungover morning that follows, as Mitch and Dave wake up and freak out having swapped bodies, taking the body switch comedy to where it’s never gone before.  ”Reynolds and Bateman are the perfect comedy duo!” says Mark S. Allen, CBS/CW TV Sacramento, as the two men comically struggle to avoid completely destroying each other’s lives before they can find a way to get their old ones back.  The Change-Up also stars Olivia Wilde (Cowboys and Aliens, Tron Legacy), Alan Arkin (Get Smart, Little Miss Sunshine), Craig Bierko (Cinderella Man, The Thirteenth Floor) and Gregory Itzin (“24,” Adaptation).

The  Blu-ray™ Combo Pack brings all of the hilarious antics of The Change-Up to the screen with perfect hi-def picture and sound on Blu-ray™, as well as an extended unrated edition of the film packing in even more laughs and exclusive bonus features, a DVD to enjoy on the go, and a Digital Copy of the film that can be downloaded for a limited time and viewed on an array of electronic and portable devices anytime, anywhere including laptops, tablets, and smartphones as well as Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray™ set top boxes.
