This is a comedy/road trip movie . It's also Melissa's first big role since she was in 'Bridesmaids' [she was in 'This is 40' but she was not the main star] . Jason plays a regular working guy ; trying to better his life , both at home and work . He gets his identity stolen by Melissa and things get worse [he could loose his job and go to jail] . Jason lives in Denver , Colorado and Melissa is living it up [on Jason's credit cards] in Miami , Florida , so the police are no help [something about jurisdictions] . Jason decides to go and bring Melissa back on his own ["How hard could it be ?" he says] . That is where the road trip comes into play . Eric plays a man Melissa meets along the way and Patrick is a bounty hunter that is looking for Melissa [she is a popular girl] . I enjoyed it .

Melissa McCarthy is so funny and Jason Bateman has that nerdy loser type guy down. Definitely for older teens and adults. Not for under 15. They made a great team and although this was made in Hollywood it made you laugh and feel good at the same time. If you like a goofy funny movie that has a soft side to it, this is well worth your time. You will laugh plenty.

Melissa McCarthy is the female Chris Farley, so if you enjoy the physical humor that he did, you'll love this Jason Bateman is the perfect straight man foil for her. The audience in our showing was hysterical almost the whole movie, we were as well.

Bateman plays a moron who gives his SS # to a thief ignorant enough to broadcast her location. I found this movie boring, with only a few chuckles; hardly worth the ticket cost. This movie is not suitable for children. For that matter, it's not fit for adults.
