If you’re a fan of throat-punching, warm, fuzzy moments, and laughing at some serious misfortune, go see “Identity Thief.”

The 2013 film is centered on Jason Bateman’s character, Sandy Bigelow Paterson, and his journey to catch a credit-card stealing, carrot topped, woman (Melissa McCarthy) that he refers to as Diana the hobbit.

As the pair travels from Florida to Denver, Colorado, they encounter many feats including some kidnapping, snake bites, and a spicy almost threesome scene.

The movie will remind you of the importance of top personal security, split your sides, and make your eyes a little misty.

Despite the premise, “Identity Thief” may actually teach a lesson in moral character.

Between gun-shots, sing-alongs, and a drug bust, the film leaves a little something to think about at its end—human compassion.

Identity Thief” is now playing in theaters, so grab a friend or two and indulge in a multi-faced film that will leave your abs tighter and your heart lighter
