We have 30 pairs of tickets to give away to attend an advance screening of Identity Thief that will be held at the Ritz East at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, February 5. Just e-mail us to enter, only one entry per household.
Horrible Bosses‘ Jason Bateman and Bridesmaids‘ Melissa McCarthy lead the cast of Identity Thief, an all-star comedy in which a regular guy is forced to extreme measures to clear his name. With everything to lose after his identity is stolen, he’ll find out how crazed you can get trying to settle a bad credit score.
Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson”… and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) 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 confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.
Directed by Horrible Bosses‘ Seth Gordon, Identity Thief is produced by Scott Stuber (Ted), Bateman and Pam Abdy (upcoming 47 Ronin). The comedy co-stars Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick and Eric Stonestreet.
Identity Thief opens in Philly-area theaters on Friday, February 8.
