Indulging an interview about their R-rated body-switching movie, “The Change-Up,” Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds sat down with’s Sienna Star to talk about the film, each other’s balls, and why they came on board the film.

Directed by David Dobkin (“Wedding Crashers”), and starring Olivia Wilde and Leslie Mann, the film was written by two of Hollywood’s hottest scribes, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the men responsible for “The Hangover.”

Reynolds, of course, had “Green Lantern” come out earlier in the summer to mixed reception, but it seems that romantic comedies are where his audiences love him most (“The Proposal”). Paired with the always funny Bateman, as well as Wilde and “Mrs. Apatow” Leslie Mann, it’s likely that audiences will be following Reynolds into the R-rated comedy, a genre all the rage at the minute.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the five R-rated comedies released this year have grossed over $1bn in North American box-office, unusually eclipsing the moneys earned by the year’s superhero flicks.

“The Change-Up” hits theaters this weekend!
