Skipping all the nonsense of Face/Off, Melissa McCarthy becomes Jason Bateman in Identity Thief with a far simpler method: she steals his credit card information. Why didn’t John Woo think of that?
From Seth Gordon (King of Kong, Horrible Bosses), the movie focuses on a man named Sandy who confronts the Florida woman who steals his identity and lives large on his dime. The trailer looks absolutely hilarious, giving just a hint at the raw craziness that the movie embraces.

I love how effortlessly McCarthy has made the transition to leading lady. She’s got unbelievable comic instincts and magnetizes attention. Maybe it’s because of the eye shadow.
At any rate, this looks excellent. Identity Thief hits theaters February 8, 2013.
