If you could change places with your friend, would you? That's exactly what happens in the 2011 comedy movie 'The Change-Up,' starring Ryan Reynolds, Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde and Leslie Mann. The best quotes from 'The Change-Up' include some truly hilarious quips from self-proclaimed playboy Mitch Planko (Reynolds) and his buddy, Dave Lockwood (Bateman). Little do they know that making a wish while urinating in a fountain will change their lives... literally. If you see a favorite quote on this list, be sure to vote it up! 

'The Change-Up' is just one of several R-rated comedy movies released over the summer of 2011. Unlike some of the bigger hits, like 'Bridesmaids' and 'The Hangover Part II,' 'The Change-Up' didn't fare very well at the box office, and only grossed about $39 million in U.S. theaters, as of mid-September 2011. Dismal reviews for 'The Change-Up' probably didn't help, but that doesn't mean it's not an enjoyable movie!

After you're done voting up your favorite funny lines from 'The Change Up,' be sure to check out the best quotes from other summer comedies, like 'Our Idiot Brother,' 'Horrible Bosses,' 'Friends With Benefits,' 'Bridesmaids,' 'Hangover Part 2,' and 'Bad Teacher'.

Cara: "You wanna come to my dance recital?"
Mitch: "The only style of dancing that Uncle Mitch likes involves a big shiny pole."

Yes, young Cara, Uncle Mitch is a bit of a player. He makes it quite clear he doesn't want to see Dave's daughter's recital, unless it involves strippers (which it doesn't).
