Story


Horrible Bosses' Jason Bateman and Bridesmaids' Melissa McCarthy lead the cast of Identity Thief, an all-star comedy in which a regular guy is forced to extreme measures to clear his name. With everything to lose after his identity is stolen, he'll find out how crazed you can get trying to settle a bad credit score.

Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There's only one glitch: The ID she's using to finance these sprees reads "Sandy Bigelow Patterson"... and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S.

With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..stereotypes, gun violence, visual cliches and cruel comedy..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“..another rough comic movie road trip helps give car travel a bad name..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..preposterous, goofy and a clear ripoff of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Identity still manages to make off with just enough laughs to work, thanks to the wondrous McCarthy..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
