Identity Thief

Directed by: Seth Gordon

Starring: Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Favreau

Rating: Not Yet Rated

Release Date: February 8, 2013

Trailer Score: 1/10

Thoughts by Tsr: Horrible. There’s not a single joke or moment in this trailer that lands for me. While I wouldn’t say this is disappointing necessarily, I was hoping for some semblance of quality considering the talent involved. I love Jason Bateman, and last time he was directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) ended up being one of my favorite comedies of 2011. “Arrested Development” has me on his side for the long haul, but after The Change-Up and this I’m starting to grow impatient. Melissa McCarthy on the other hand is someone I’ve liked before, though I’ve grown tired of her shtick. I found her Oscar nomination preposterous (I preferred virtually everyone else in the cast of Bridesmaids, particularly Rose Byrne), but that’s fine. »
