So, who’s seen the movie The Change Up?
While I was in snot-induced coma last week I took a day off from work. Both kids went to daycare and I sat on the couch and tried to decide what movie I wanted to watch through PPV. Since I was on all kinds of drugs, I decided I should probably pick something that didn’t involve me using too many brain cells. Ryan Reynolds as eye candy, Jason Bateman as great comic relief … a match made in Heaven for me and my 3 remaining little brain cells.
For those of you who haven’t seen the movie, you might want to stop reading now … because there will be SPOILERS. Or maybe not, maybe you SHOULD read what I’m about to type so that you’ll think twice about dropping $5.99 on two hours of your life. You decide. I’ll wait.
Okay, done waiting.
First off, the movie is funny. I would totally be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t cracking up through 60% of it. In fact, the scene where Leslie Mann kicks Jason Bateman (who is really Ryan Reynolds character) out of bed to deal with the babies while screaming, ‘I WILL CUT YOU!’ … after he says she should deal with it because ‘she’s the woman’ nearly had me rolling off the couch … haven’t we all been there with our husbands at 245am?
But here are a few issues I have with this flick:
1) They keep talking about they’re sleep training the twins (who look like they’re supposed to be 8 – 10 months old). But IDK how they’re ‘sleep training’ when someone is getting up every time the babies start crying. This totally confused me.
2) The weird computer graphics they used to make the babies look like they were in precarious situations (like about to sick little hands in a blender, playing with a butcher’s knife, pooping into dad’s mouth) were totally overdone and dumb.
3) There were boobs flying out all over the place … which I can handle, whatever. But I had to laugh when I saw Leslie Mann strip down to show off these beautiful, perky, small-nippled, perfect specimen-like breasts. She’s supposed to be breast-feeding TWINS. At 9 months? Oh, and she has an older daughter, so she’s breast fed THREE kids? Dude. Those puppies should be hanging down to her KNEES, and instead she looks like the only thing to ever touch her boobs has been had the label ‘Victoria’s Secret’ sewn into it, or possibly her first boyfriend when he finally got to 2nd base.
Clearly … I watch movies from an entirely different perspective now than I did four years ago. In fact, I was so weirded out by these fantastic boobs that I Googled them. Yep. I sure did. I Googled ‘Leslie Mann’s boobs’. And you know what I found out? They’re not even hers. Prosthetic boobs for the movie … which makes me feel a smidgen better about myself, lol.
