Identity Thief Trailer: Melissa McCarthy Steals Jason Bateman's Life

Melissa McCarthy: villain? It may sound unlikely, but the explosive trailer for Identity Thief has the comedienne stealing the identity of regular guy Sandy (Jason Bateman) and using his credit to finance her shopping sprees. When Sandy gets notice of court dates he's been missing across the country, he finally realizes why his credit cards are maxed out. He goes to Florida in search of the "hobbit" (Sandy's words, not mine) who's been using his name, but he doesn't quite anticipate getting throat-punched by Diana (McCarthy). His quest for justice soon turns into a dangerous game, complete with car chases and explosions.

I like Bateman, but he always seems to be embodying the same witty and slightly caustic guy. It's no surprise that his character is reminiscent of the one he played in last year's Horrible Bosses, seeing as Identity Thief is also from director Seth Gordon. On the other hand, this is definitely McCarthy like I've never seen her before. Even though she's the antagonist, she has just the right amount of off-the-wall charm to get me to root for her. It even looks like Sandy likes her by the end of the trailer. Identity Thief comes out on Feb. 8, but you can watch the trailer after the jump.
