‘Family Switch’ Trailer: Jennifer Garner And Ed Helms Star In Family Body Swapping Comedy From Director McG

Somehow, Jennifer Garner and Ed Helms have seen their careers transform to the point where we are more accustomed to seeing them as parents in family comedies than anything else. How did the killer actress from Alias and Elektra, and the raunchy actor from The Hangover movies become so…domesticated? They practically have “family friendly” stamped on their foreheads. Well, it ain’t over. Because the duo will play parents in the upcoming Netflix body-swapping comedy, Family Switch.

This one’s pretty easy to follow. A dysfunctional family finds their home more chaotic than usual when the parents suddenly swap bodies with their kids, the kids become the adults, the baby becomes the dog, and all of this happens on an extremely important day! Of course it does!

Also in the cast are Wednesday actress Emma Myers, TMNT: Mutant Mayhem‘s Brady Noon, Bashir Salahuddin, Army of the Dead‘s Matthias Schweighöfer, Xosha Roquemore, Ilia Isorelýs Paulino, Paul Scheer, Fortune Feimster, and Rita Moreno. Lots of talent that have worked with Netflix many times before, and that includes the guy behind the camera.

Surprisingly, the film is directed by McG, who you probably remember from his Terminator and Charlie’s Angels action flicks. Most recently he directed both The Babysitter films for Netflix.

Seriously, this looks pretty cozy and easy to watch. Family Switch hits Netflix on November 30th.

Here’s the synopsis followed by the new trailer:

Jess and Bill Walker are doing their best to keep their family connected as their children grow older, more independent, and more distant. When a chance encounter with an astrological reader causes the family to wake up to a full body switch, on the morning of the most important day of each of their lives, can the Walkers unite to land a promotion, college interview, record deal and soccer tryout?
