'The Change-Up' promo, with Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman

Posted on

By god, Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds will make you excited about seeing The Change-Up. In a new NSFW promo video, the stars of this Friday’s body-switching comedy don matching white suits and sit in an abstract art-gallery space to pitch their movie. Reynolds wearily notes that Change-Up is “no dumber than a movie about a bunch of talking apes.” Bateman tries reaching out to the all-important Asian demographic. At one point, Reynolds freaks out on a crewman. “Don’t hurt him, Lantern!” pleads his co-star. I’m attempting to remain un-charmed, but the goggles do nothing! Watch the video:
