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.

First-ever review, because it's really that bad.
7 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

I saw through almost an hour of this movie before I couldn't justify wasting my time anymore. I don't think I've laughed once.

From the very beginning, the character Julia is constantly and unceasingly aggravating without redeeming or even laughable qualities. On the other hand, the character Sandy, though understandably a mild-mannered businessman unused to situations like the one he finds himself in, reacts to these situations in a way that makes me believe his core function is to drag the story on for as long as humanly possible. His interactions are frustratingly illogical, do not contribute to building either his or Julia's characters, and above all, ARE NOT FUNNY.

If you're looking for a fun movie, you'd be better off watching Le Mis. I haven't watched a movie this teeth-grindingly bad since No Strings Attached.
