The Change-Up

(R) ★★☆☆☆

From the director of Wedding Crashers and The Hangover writers comes this weak and uninteresting farce. Jason Bateman, playing a workaholic lawyer, and Ryan Reynolds, playing his bongaholic buddy, magically change places while peeing in a fountain one drunken evening when each utters, “I wish I had your life!” Some comedies have the knack for shock value, but this film merely has the will to offend. The cast does what it can, but there’s just not much to like here.

Cirque Gets Visual

Strip entertainment giant Cirque du Soleil is taking over the art scene this month with two big events. The first is Safewalls (Trifecta Gallery in the Arts Factory, 107 E. Charleston Blvd., Suite 135, through Aug. 26), a touring collection of vintage-style circus posters reimagined by contemporary artists. Frank Kozik, Chet Zar and local Casey Weldon created three creepily beautiful Zumanity posters, while Vegas native Amy Sol’s ethereal Kà poster (pictured) makes us wish we could crawl into her visual world.
