Melissa McCarthy in 'Identity Thief' Blu-ray: Step aside, boys -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

It’s difficult to imagine Identity Thief, this year’s biggest comedy, without Melissa McCarthy. But when Jason Bateman and director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) were originally planning their buddy-road movie with its nods to Planes, Trains, and Automobiles and Midnight Run, the Oscar-nominated actress wasn’t part of the picture. In fact, her felonious character who steals people’s identities and maxes out their credit limits wasn’t even a she — it was a he. Then came Bridesmaids, which opened Hollywood’s eyes to a new brand of bawdy female comedy that was the perfect match for Gordon’s R-rated comedy. With McCarthy playing the outrageous, unpredictable crook and Bateman playing the perfect trusted, beleaguered neighbor who could live in your cul-de-sac, Identity Thief scored $133 million at the box office, making it the biggest February opening since Hitch.

Makes you wonder… what were the boys thinking in the first place? I think I speak for everyone, Melissa, when I say, “I visually enjoy you.”

Identity Thief can be downloaded digitally beginning tomorrow, and an Unrated Blu-ray is set for release on June 4. Check out an exclusive video clip that discusses how McCarthy changed everything. READ FULL STORY

But perhaps the most unexpected pleasure is seeing Jennifer Aniston play a predatory, filthy-mouthed dentist who delights in sexually harassing her assistant (played by Charlie Day). "I had such a great time doing it. It was ridiculous fun," Aniston tells EW. "I never get that kind of fun stuff. It was great! You do tend to get locked into parts that you play, you know what I mean?  People forget that there are other parts in there. That's what I love about Seth Gordon -- someone with imagination. You just have to have the balls to let people try [other kinds of roles]
