Melissa McCarthy is a bad girl, and she’s clearly the star of both upcoming comedies “The Heat” and “Identity Thief”, where she flexes her bad girl self for great effect. That’s despite the fact that “The Heat” co-stars Sandra Bullock. But let’s face it, when you have a giant ball of personality like Melissa McCarthy running around (or in the case of “The Heat”, cussing like a sailor), it’s her show, and everyone is just hanging on for dear life.
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.
