Universal Pictures has released a second fun trailer for the Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy comedy Identity Thief. It features new footage from the film, shows us more of the supporting cast, and gives us a little more insight on the story. Having your identity stolen has got to be one of the most frustrating things ever, but director Seth Gordon managed to make a fun looking comedy out of it.
The movie also stars Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Tip "T.I." Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick and Eric Stonestreet.
In the film, unlimited funds have allowed Diana (Melissa McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson”… and it belongs to an accounts rep (Jason 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 confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.
Identity Thief arrives on February 8th, 2013. The movie looks like it will have some funny moments, and I like to laugh so I'll be checking it out.
