When someone tells you that Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy are starring in a comedy together, you take note and wait for the inevitable funnies to come. And so brings the trailer for said film, Identity Thief. The rambunctious comedy tells the tale of the real and fake Sandy Bigelow Patterson. The former (played by Bateman) needs to clear his name of the latter’s (McCarthy) theft of his identity in order to rectify the financial devastation her misdeed has caused. Hilarity ensues as Bateman has to somehow get McCarthy the 2,000+ miles from her home in Miami to his in Colorado to clear his name and get it back once and for all.
Identity Thief hits theaters on February 8th, 2013. Are you looking forward to it? Let us know in the comments!
