Synopsis


Identity Thief
An accounts representative embarks on a frantic quest to reclaim his identity from the Orlando thief who stole it and destroyed his credit by embarking on a massive spending spree in this comedy starring Jason Bateman (Arrested Development, Horrible Bosses) and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids). Sandy Bigelow Patterson (Bateman) has a problem. A Denver family man who's always been responsible with his personal finances, he is shocked to learn that his credit score is in shambles. But it gets worse -- if he can't clear his name in a week, the mix-up could very well cost him his job. Fortunately Sandy is in luck; after the unrepentant Florida fraudster (McCarthy) who stole his identity causes a stir in a club and misses her court date, Sandy is arrested and promptly released when detectives request a mug shot, and realize their mistake. When the police refuse to offer any help, Sandy realizes that his only choice is to catch the imposter himself and bring her back to Denver to face justice. Unfortunately, this wily thief isn't going down without a fight, and with a grizzled skip tracer (Robert Patrick) and a pair of vicious gangsters (Génesis Rodríguez and T.I.) determined to get the fake Sandy first, every step along the way will be a struggle. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Decent comedy with a decent BluRay...

    Melissa McCarthy solidified her A-List status with this film, which is a pretty decent film with a few good dramatic beats, but nothing more than this. A good cast is the best this film has, which has some characters on here that are superfluous and could have been deleted entirely, a mediocre screenplay and decent but nothing more direction. The picture, shot digitally, has a filmic sheen in most scenes with some shots looking flat and glossy which is a byproduct of digital, but still looks good. The audio is lively with some nice surround use, nice LFE with car crashes and music, but doesn't stretch too far beyond typical comedy soundtrack. Decent extras like a few featurettes, deleted scenes, a gag reel and an unrated cut are nice to have, but could have used a more BTS look including documentaries or commentary, but still happy that I got this for under $10. Anything more is highway robbery or in this films case, identity theft.

    Unfortunately I bought this based on the reviews here on BestBuy.,com, wrongly thinking, the trailers were funny, and Melissa McCarthy was hilarious in Bridesmaids and on SNL. WRONG! This movie starts out with Jason Bateman's character ( a financial investor expert no less) giving out his complete personal information to a caller identifying herself as a credit fraud analyst from his credit card company. Hello? You never give out your personal information! My family and I all had had enough after about 20 minutes and ejected the movie. We all hoped that it would get better. Hold on another scene, maybe it will get better. Wrong again! Melissa's character is a foul mouthed, mean spirited, bee. With a capital B. If I could return it I would. Instead I sold it to FYE for $2. What a waste of money and what a waste of two actors that I previously had enjoyed watching.

    This movie was a funny movie which was more for people who like R rated comedies. I bought this for my mom over at best buy. I liked the fact that there was a bluray disc, and a regular because, if you wanted to watch it in your bedroom, and you don't have a bluray player in it, then, you won't have to worry about moving you or the bluray player somewhere else. I laughed alot in the movie, but, that's how they got by with the plot. The plot wasn't that great, or in other words, there's better. Jason and his partner were great in this movie. They both fit the characters, and I think they fit together. I'd buy this movie on bluray.

    Very Funny Movie

    The film was very funny. Advertised well. Although, not real world enough for me. I would love to see this less cinematized. The drug dealers trying to kill them was a bit much, they could have easily been written out and just had the two main charactors going at each other constantly, but instead they decided to make it a somewhat love story... I don't know maybe I hold grudges too much, but to me, no one that got their identity stolen and lost that much of their life could ever be that forgiving.

    A dumb, but thoroughly enjoyable movie

    Based on the previews, I knew would be a dumb comedy, and I was right. It was funny, sometimes making me laugh out loud (punch to the throat will always do that), with the mandatory social message included. The leads were excellent, and the rest of the movie was good enough for me to recommend this movie to anyone wanting something that will make them laugh without a mental challenge. The language is a little coarse for the kiddos, so I wouldn't recommend it for family movie night.

    This won't be worth the buy for most folks, and the reviews on this were aweful as well, but I honestly thought it was pretty decent and funny in parts. It could have been better, but the Jason and Melissa are really good and worth the view. The road trip and laughs made this pretty enjoyable. So again, unless a huge fan of one of these actors, its not worth paying full price on, but if went into the 9.99 or under bin, its worth it!

    When you looking for something funny and a very interesting movie this is the perfect one. I didn't know how much damage a stealing an identity can cause and the consequences. I agree with the theme of the story and the end, finally if you do something bad you pay the price. But after all that is the perfect way to explained us how that business work, great comedy, great actors...Lesson learn..

    I loved this movie because it brought out the best the two lead actors are known for. This movie continues the trend of me loving Melissa McCarthy in every single movie I have seen her in, yet I cannot stand the show she is actually on that has made her so famous. So if you are debating whether to watch this based on her, please do so as she is truly hilarious when given more freedom of range.
