As someone who once had his wallet stolen at an airport Bennigans, I know a little thing about identity theft. Though the joke was on the tool who stole my identity, because little did he know that I had outstanding warrants in several states, owed bookies a lot of money and hadn't paid my alimony in months. My wallet was never returned, but that guy is currently drinking his meals out of a straw. So having lived through that experience is why I'm actually looking forward to Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy facing off in the trailer for Seth Gordon's (Horrible Bosses) new comedy Identity Theft.

When a mild-mannered businessman learns his identity has been stolen, he hits the road in an attempt to foil the thief -- a trip that puts him in the path of a deceptively harmless-looking woman.

Co-starring Jon Favreau and Amanda Peet, Identity Thief comes to theaters February 8, 2013.
