THE CHANGE-UP is a US comedy in which two men with drastically different lives accidentally swap bodies after they both make a wish whilst urinating into a magic fountain.

Language

There is frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker').

Sex

There is a comic scene in which a man inadvertently finds himself performing in a soft core porn film; no sex is seen, although there are strong crude references to sexual activity when the director instructs the male performer to "pump that ass" and to digitally penetrate the female performer's anus. There are also references to sex acts, including to fellatio and masturbation. A man masturbates to porn and a woman is seen riding on a man; her breasts are exposed but there is no strong detail.

Drugs

There are scenes in which characters smoke marijuana.

There is a crude scene in which excrement sprays from a baby's bottom into a man's face while he is changing its nappy.
