Identity Thief

Last year Jason Bateman had his identity switched in The Change-Up with Ryan Reynolds, but now he's finding it complete stolen by a woman (Melissa McCarthy) living the high life somewhere near Miami in the first trailer for Identity Thief. Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon is at the helm of this new comedy which also features Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Genesis Rodriguez, John Cho, Robert Patrick and Eric Stonestreet. Since the earlier part of the year is usually a dead time, this looks like it could be a refreshing comedy that will hold us over until spring rolls along in April. Watch the trailer below!

Here's the first trailer for Seth Gordon's Identity Theft, originally from Yahoo:

Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (Melissa McCarthy) to live it up near Miami, buying whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using belongs to “Sandy Bigelow Patterson” and that's 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 bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, he will discover just how tough it is to get your name back. Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) directs from a script by Craig Mazin and the film arrives in theaters February 8th early next year.

Ugh. I missed one. Universal is having some issues correcting a bunch of outlets. Since the title wasn't very prominent in the posters yesterday, the change wasn't made very well known until today and we're still getting used to it. Thanks for pointing that out.

Grr i love Melissa i think she is truly funny like a lady John Candy... and why Jason Bateman always drive the ugliest cars?

This movie looks pretty funny, especially because I think it's a great mix between Jason Bateman who plays the straight-faced guy in comedies so well, and Melissa McCarthy and her bombastic on-screen persona. I think it should easily be funnier than Due Date Also, loved that they used N*E*R*D's "Lapdance" in the trailer, hope it's in the movie, too.
