One day after HuffPost Entertainment debuted a first look at the new Melissa McCarthy comedy "Identity Thief," Universal has premiered the first trailer for the film, which also stars Jason Bateman.

Directed by Seth Gordon ("Horrible Bosses"), "Identity Thief" is about ... well, identity theft. (In fact, the film's original title was "Identity Theft.") Here's the official plot summary, via Universal

Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson” ... and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S.

With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.

Watch the hilarious first trailer above. "Identity Thief" arrives in theaters on Feb. 8, 2013.
