Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman’s box office hit IDENTITY THIEF is coming to DVD and Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack starting June 4, 2013.
A mild-mannered businessman and the spend-happy con woman who stole his identity embark on an uproarious, cross-country road trip in the blockbuster comedy IDENTITY THIEF, available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand June 4, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. IDENTITY THIEF’s stars – Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses) and Emmy® winner Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) – charmed critics and audiences alike with their off-the-wall outrageous banter. Directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), IDENTITY THIEF also features an all-star ensemble cast including Jon Favreau (Iron Man series), Amanda Peet (2012), Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris (American Gangster), Genesis Rodriguez (What to Expect When You’re Expecting), John Cho (Star Trek, Harold & Kumar series), Robert Patrick (Safe House) and Eric Stonestreet (“Modern Family”).
In IDENTITY THIEF, unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Orlando. There’s only one glitch: she’s financing her shopping sprees with an ID stolen from Sandy Patterson (Bateman), an accounts rep who lives halfway across the U.S. With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Patterson is forced to extreme measures to clear his name.
