Identity Theft

Scene from Identity theftA case of mistaken identity and a wild trip characterizes Identity Thief. Sandy Patterson, a name that Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy both share, must face court charges in Denver, Colorado. The authorities believe that Jason Bateman is guilty, but the truth is that Melissa McCarthy is at fault. On top of that, she has stolen his identity and credit cards. Bateman goes cross-county to find and bring back McCarthy to face justice in Denver. McCarthy is hip and delightful as an identity thief. Bateman and McCarthy have terrific chemistry as they fight, embarrass, argue and help each other. Their zany adventure back to Denver is funny and the supporting cast is quirky and authentic. The language and sexual content take away from the focus of the movie. However, there is still much to be enjoyed from Identity Thief.

Sheen plays a graphic designer successful in business and with women. Surprisingly, his attractive girlfriend dumps him. Confused by the breakup, Sheen spends most of the movie dealing with that loss and what to do next. Sheen does amazing job as Swan struggles through various emotions on how he should view his ex-girlfriend and deals anger, love, hate among other emotions. Swann gets help for his confusion, various fantasies and dreams from supporting casting members Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray and Patricia Arquette. Sheen and Schwartzman, who is Kirby Star, have terrific chemistry together, as does the rest of the cast. Swan and his companions go through a number of unique experiences, which are entertaining, but the story itself seems to get mucked up.
