4.0 out of 5 stars I like it!, 17 May 2014
By 
This review is from: Identity Thief [Blu-ray + UV Copy] [2012] (Blu-ray)
And I know a lot of people complained there is too much violence, too much swearing, and an array of cheap laughs, I still found myself enjoying it! Majorly thanks to Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy who make the magic of blue screen work no matter how average the script is and how bad the jokes are.

While watching it I did not once get the "I've seen this before" feeling. The leading characters are comic gold, with great on-screen chemistry. There is a number of quite great comedy sequences and one-liners (my particular favourite being "I love my turquoise like I love my women: American and top grade", wait till you see that in the film). The only disappointment is the supporting cast (Jason Bateman's on-screen wife is particularly wooden).

In short: your average accountant Sandy Patterson (Jason Bateman) gets a call confirming his name and asking for all the important identity information for "insurance purposes". Within a couple of days, a hair salon in Florida is confirming his appointment, and his credit cards are cut in halves. With his identity stolen and his career on the brick of collapse (and just out of handcuffs), Sandy leaves his family and job to literally bring the criminal (Melissa McCarthy) to justice, from Florida to Colorado. Little does he know. The weird but wonderful road trip begins.
