About Identity Thief
Sandy Patterson (Jason Bateman) is duped into telling career criminal Diana (Melissa McCarthy) his personal details and she steals his identity. While he scrimps and saves with his wife as they're expecting their third child, Diana is getting drunk and disorderly on Sandy's money in Florida. Their lives collide when Sandy decides to investigate why his credit cards are being declined and he's summoned to court. He goes to Florida to find Diana in the hopes that she will clear his name. In return, he considers not pressing charges. But Diana has a tendency to punch people in the throat when they do something disagreeable and Sandy will need all his wits about him if he is to drag her back to the police.
