Storyline

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. 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.

Trivia

Melissa McCarthy' s character does not wear a seatbelt in any of the car scenes with Jason Bateman. See more »

Goofs

When Julian and Marisol are put into the trunk of their car at gun point, they were clearly driving a Dodge Charger, however the shot of them in the trunk was taken from a Ford Crown Victoria. This happens again when they are removed from the trunk by the police after the car chase. There is also a number '9' decal visible under the vinyl wrap on the trunk lid. This would indicate that they used one of the cop cars to film the shots. See more »

Disappointed
4 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.

5.5 out of 10
