Avast! Trailer For Identity Thief.

I’m not usually a big fan of cooky comedies but for some reason the pairing of Jason Bateman, (Arrested Development, The Change Up) and Melissa McCarthy, (Bridesmaids, Gilmore Girls) has hooked me in and judging from the trailer it feels like a far more violent and action packed version of Planes Trains & Automobiles…you know, with Bateman as Steve Martin and McCarthy as a female John Candy? Have I told you about my theory about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey being a modern re-working of The Dirty Dozen?

I digress, directed by Seth Gordon, (Horrible Bosses, The King O f Kong), Identity Thief also John Cho, Amanda Peet, Robert Patrick and Morris Chestnut, the plot of which rattles along like so:

Unlimited funds have allowed Diana to live it up near Miami, buying whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using belongs to “Sandy Bigelow Patterson” and that’s 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 Bigelow Patterson heads south to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, he will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.

Begad! Trailer For Horrible Bosses.

This looks like it could be the sleeper hit movie of the year. Why? Well who hasn’t at one time hated the very ground their boss has walked upon?

Starring Jason Bateman, (Juno, Arrested Development), Charlie Day, (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia) and Jason Sudeikis, (Hall Pass) as three tortured souls who hate their individual bosses, (Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell), with a passion so great it drives them to conspire their deaths and the inevitable hilarity ensues.

If you’re still unsure that Horrible Bosses could be as big a sleeper hit as The Hangover then consider this, Bunk from The Wire has a cameo role as a detective and Jamie Foxx, (Miami Vice, Ray)  who plays a character called Motherf@cka Jones…sold!
