The film Identity Thief, released February 8 and directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), is quite a disappointment. This came as quite a surprise to me because the film’s stars, Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, are two equally hilarious veterans of comedy television and film. Bateman is a very gifted actor, widely known for his role in Arrested Development. McCarthy, best known for her role in Bridesmaids, for which she was nominated for an Oscar, is a notably funny woman whose characters commonly get themselves into trouble.
