US release of Identity Thief movie

Universal Pictures releases the movie comedy Identity Thief, directed by Seth Gordon and starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy in the leading roles.

In the movie, a mild-mannered accounts representative (played by Bateman) discovers that his identity has been stolen. A trashy Orlando fraudster (McCarthy) is using up all his credit with a gigantic buying spree. After the police refuses to help, he faces the challenge of catching the thief within a week and bringing her to Denver, or risk a bad credit rating for the rest of his life.

The comedy is likely to attract considerable interest, as identity theft is rife in the United States. The Federal Trade Commission estimates that there are 9 million US cases of identity theft every year.
