Dave (Jason Bateman) and Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) switch bodies in the 2011 comedy, The Change Up.

Next up in Talk of the Nation's Summer Movie Series is the identity switch.

From Freaky Friday to Heaven Can Wait, Hollywood has been body-switching for decades: men to women, women to men, parents to kids, young to old — it's all been done, and often redone. Murray Horwitz is back with some of the most memorable body switch movies.

Tell us: What's your favorite body switch movie? The basic ground rules: the film must depict the experience of living in a different body. Trading lives or professions (a la Trading Places) doesn't count.
