Coming off as the female Zach Galifianakis, McCarthy is absolutely hysterical as a Florida con-woman who steals Bateman’s identity.  Despite Bateman’s attempts to confront her, it’s pretty obvious that she is nowhere near just a “hobbit”, and will be punching back every chance she gets! 

Take a look at the video and posters below, and let us know what you think!  (Although, I have to say, Bateman’s poster does make him look like a sucker…)

Directed by HORRIBLE BOSSES helm Seth Gordon, IDENTITY THIEF stars Bateman, McCarthy, Jon Favreau, John Cho, and Amanda Peet, and is set to hit theaters February 8, 2013.
