A comedy about an identity thief?

A new movie is coming out where a guy chases down and befriends a woman who stole his identity.

I came across a film preview this morning that takes the subject of identity theft to bizarre new levels. The movie is called "Identity Thief" and stars Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy and John Cho. The IMDb blurb describes it this way:

When a mild-mannered businessman learns his identity has been stolen, he hits the road in an attempt to foil the thief -- a trip that puts him in the path of a deceptively harmless-looking woman.

The preview is posted below. Judge for yourselves.
