Storyline

Sandy Patterson (Jason Bateman) gets a nice call confirming his name and other identifying information. The next thing he knows, a spa in Florida is reminding him of his appointment and his credit cards are maxed out. With his identity stolen, Sandy leaves his wife, kids and job to literally bring the thief to justice in Colorado. Keeping tabs on the other Sandy (Melissa McCarthy) and run-ins with bounty hunters is harder than he was expecting, and ultimately the cross-country trip is going to find both Sandys learning life tips from one another.

When Sandy is following Diana down the highway, there is a quick glimpse of the speedometer of her car as she accelerates. The car says it is "Tue 23 Feb." However, based on the photo IDs, Sandy's birth date is 18 May 1974. The movie takes place in May just after his birthday, based on his family celebrating his birthday near the beginning of the movie.

McCarthy's Character Sucks
7 June 2013 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Halfway through the movie I walked out of the theater. I loved horrible bosses but I hated this crap. Its terrible. McCarthy's character is so unlikeable that I wish she was mutilated in a Texas Chainsaw movie or something. Her character made me p!ssed off and I wish someone in the movie would just beat the SH !T out of her but it never happened.

I'm a 20 year old male and I could not connect with anyone in this movie. One of the most frustrating movies to watch. Just made me squirm in my seat. It was like torture. I was bleeding from my eyes and ears from the pain.

This movie is bad

I wouldn't watch this if you paid me $5 to sit through the whole thing

I wish I could rate this a zero
