The movie Identity Thief, starting Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, hits theaters today. Identity Thief tells the story of a man whose identity is stolen by a non-threatening looking woman. Bateman’s character then sets out to bring her to justice and the wacky and funny situations ensue.

I’m still on the fence about going to watch the movie in the theaters. Ticket prices are SO ridiculous! Maybe I’ll wait till it hits Redbox, or try one of these twelve ways to save money on movie tickets.
