4 Well-Known Body-Swap Movies, and 5 You Haven’t Heard Of

By  | 

It's that time again: Magical movie where two people switch bodies and learn that the grass is not always greener and that they should value their own existences, no matter how uncool/directionless they are! The latest offering is The Change-Up, where family man Jason Bateman and stoner playboy Ryan Reynolds wish for each other's lives. Drugs! Divorce! Naked Olivia Wilde! But before we get to all that, here are nine other movies (compiled by myself and our intern, Molly Horan) that use the same trope, with varying results. You may know more than a few of these, but we guarantee that you haven't heard of Sex, Drugs, & Natalie Portman!
