If you ever wanted to know what inspired Melissa McCarthy's look in Identity Thief, our exclusive featurette will give you those answers before its Blu-ray and DVD debut on June 4. Director Seth Gordon discusses how long it took to come up with the actress' look as the colorful con artist, and costume designer Carol Ramsey explains where they found some of these unique clothing items in this behind-the-scenes video you can't watch anywhere else.
Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses) and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) lead an all-star cast in this hilarious blockbuster hit. Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Orlando. There's only one glitch: she's financing her shopping sprees with an ID stolen from Sandy Patterson (Bateman), 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 Patterson is forced to extreme measures to clear his name. From the director of Horrible Bosses and the producer of Ted, critics are calling Identity Thief "smart, funny and surprisingly touching" - Rafer Guzman, Newsday
