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.

Crazy Credits

After the end credits, we hear two lines of dialog from earlier in the movie. The Skiptracer Robert Patrick saying "No, Sandy's a girl's name!" And Sandy Jason Bateman replying "It's not, it's unisex!" See more »

Alternate Versions

The studio thought that it was necessary to enrich the DVD/BD releases with a longer Unrated Cut that adds almost 9 minutes of material. The clear conclusion here is that the majority of those scenes feel like they were cut out of the theatrical version because they simply weren't needed or slowing down the events. Typical "unrated" material that could've been too risky for the "R"-rated theatrical version is nowhere in sight. See more »

don't listen to the bad reviews--first laugh two min's in/if you have a sense of humor , its a funny movie
10 March 2013 | by thepotatoHasEyesSee all my reviews

This movie is a good comedy, I cant believe i have to say this in every(almost)comedy review. comedy is not going to deliver any deep messages or "take" you anywhere. it is just the friend that comes over to cheer you up. ---check out "DRAMA" if you need meaning -- stop knocking pro made comedy , not everyone has the same sense of humor but most humor is universal so if you wanna laugh , you will,

the opening set-up for this movie jumps right in , explains the concept well and sets the tone for funny, i was laughing right away,

Top name actors , highly polished feel, easy storyline, and "it's true life experiences that we can all--well , most of us --laugh about(or cry).

Jon Favreau is in this- he does'nt do bad movies,if he is listed as producer(he is brilliant)or actor , it's worth watching.

lastly-nothing worse than a long review-hint to reviewers-- so i am oudahere --NOW HIT PLAY ON THE MOVIE
