New ‘Identity Thief’ Movie Delivered Great Comedy,Drama,Plotline & More
New ‘Identity Thief’ movie delivered great comedy,drama,plot & more. Universal Pictures released their new comedy flick “Identity Thief” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and thought is was highly entertaining,serving up a ton of crazy laughs,drama,and a pretty good storyline. It stars: Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick, and Eric Stonestreet.
In the new flick ,character Sandy Patterson (Jason Bateman) gets his identity stolen from character Diana (Melissa McCarthy),causing him to get in major trouble,including possibly losing his new Vice President job. Eventually,he strikes up a deal with Detective Reilly to clear his name,immediately,if he can bring Diana in on his own.
From there, Sandy flies all the way to Florida from Denver to seek out Diana and bring her in. Once there, he runs into her,and quickly finds out that it’s not going to be as easy as he thinks ,when she totally kicks his butt and steals his car. In round 2,Sandy was able to track down Diana’s house and convince her to come with him to just explain herself to his boss,so he can keep his job. She also agrees,because it will help her get away from some very bad people who are trying to kill her.
After that agreement is made,it seems like things will be smooth sailing all the way back to Denver. Unfortunately, that doesn’t turn out to be the case as they have a run-in with a few Diana bounty hunters,get arrested for more fraud,get hit by cars,and more.
But despite all of that madness,they eventually make it back to Denver and a funny thing happens along the way. Diana and Sandy actually have a few heart to heart moments and become friends. It all capped with a very heartfelt conclusion,where Sandy wasn’t going to turn Diana in after all,but Diana ends up turning her ownself in after appearing to have run off again. Then Sandy and his family visit her in prison,because they really do care about her. So, yeah,it was pretty wild.
Again, the film was highly entertaining. It probably won’t win any Oscars,but it’s definitely a great comedy. I’ve always liked Jason Bateman as an actor and he didn’t disappoint in this one. And that Melissa McCarthy was ,no doubt, as funny as ever in this. I gave the movie a solid B+ grade. Stay tuned. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here.
