Sandy Patterson (Jason Bateman) gets a nice call confirming his name and other identifying information. The next thing he knows, a spa in Florida is reminding him of his appointment, and his credit cards are maxed out. With his identity stolen, Sandy leaves his wife, kids and job to literally bring the thief to justice in Colorado. But keeping tabs on the other Sandy (Melissa McCarthy) and run-ins with bounty hunters, is harder than he was expecting, and ultimately the cross-country trip is going to find both Sandys learning life tips from one another.

Disappointed would be the first word that comes to mind. With such a colorful cast, you would expect a "laugh out loud" comedy but I found that aside from a few scenes, that was not the case. Melissa McCarthy was a riot in the movie Bridesmaids and her weekly TV show Mike an Molly so naturally you would assume a movie where she plays the leading role would be hilarious but the film definitely left something to be desired. I would say to save your money and to wait until the DVD release.
