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

When Sandy first arrives to Miami, Florida to catch Diana at the salon, the scene starts with an aerial zoom in of a coastline then a short cut to Sandy waiting in the car outside of the salon. The scene tries to depict Winter Park as just a short drive from Miami when in truth Winter Park is a suburban city of Orlando, FL, about a 5 hour drive outside South Beach. See more »

Goofs

When the skiptracer throws Diane in the back of his van, he closes a sing lock on the back of the van. When Sandy is chasing the van, there is no swing lock present. See more »

Quotes

Diana: I just want to be upfront and say I visually enjoy you.

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 »

People need to take this for what it is!
19 February 2013 | by ariasn1See all my reviews

Actually a 6.5 out of 10.

The movie wasn't smart, it wasn't even very good.

But it didn't need to be. It was stupid and funny and predictable. The actors were all more than competent and the script and direction were funny.

There was literally NO substance to this movie. And I think the audience hated me when I started laughing during one of the scenes that were meant to be melancholy.

Go for the fun not for the substance. And you'll be in for a fun night!

6.5/10.
