Movie Review: Identity Thief (Watch Trailer)

Director: Seth Gordon
Cast: Amanda Peet, T. I, Jason Bateman, John Cho, Jon Favreau, Melissa McCarthy, Morris Chestnut, Robert Patrick...

Writing Credits: 
Screenplay - Craig Mazin 
Story - Jerry Eeten, Craig Mazin  

Release Date: February 2013

A Colorado mild-mannered businessman, Sandy Patterson, (Jason Bateman), is tricked into giving his credit card details over the phone to Diana (Melissa McCarthy from Bridesmaids), a Florida confidence trickster, whose extravagance threatens his job, his family and his future. Only by going to Miami, discovering that Diana is an obese, alcoholic, sluttish sociopath, and forcefully taking her back to Denver, can he clear his name.

The film goes downhill when the makers become sentimental and attempt to make Diana sympathetic and have Sandy regard her intervention in his life as some kind of Job-like test that helps him grow as a man. Identity Thief is fictitious and intended to be funny, but in its own way it is extremely frightening and could have happened to anyone.
