'Comedy' is a bit of a fraud
Identity theft, which puts an estimated 1.8 million people in the UK a year through untold hassle, is no laughing matter.
Nor is Seth Gordon's brash comedy.
It pits a kind-hearted family man (Jason Bateman) against the feisty con woman (Melissa McCarthy) who has pilfered his personal details.
Sandy Bigelow Patterson (Bateman) is a mild-mannered accounts clerk, working for the world's worst boss, Harold Cornish (Jon Favreau), who lives in Denver with his wife Trish (Amanda Peet) and their young daughters.

Their domestic bliss is shattered when Sandy learns a Florida shopaholic called Diana (McCarthy) has stolen his identity and run up huge bills.
Moreover, she has been arrested in his name and police are obliged to harass Sandy.
Standing on the brink of financial ruin, Sandy resolves to hunt down Diana and drag her back to Denver to own up.
He flies to Florida and eventually holds Diana hostage and compels her to join him on a 3,000-mile road trip back to Denver, with a tenacious bail bondsman in hot pursuit.
