Funny Actors Save Bad Script

There's no denying that the two leads have chemistry and talent. There's plenty of physical comedy and the actors perform with terrific timing. What's missing here is a good story and good lines for them to deliver. Don't expect any memorable lines or scenes. The movie is funny because Bateman and MaCarthy are funny and good together. Unfortunately, that's only enough for those in the mood to enjoy it, but not anyone with a discerning eye.

This movie was so awesomely funny. I enjoyed every second of watching it. It was funny and dramatic and the actors were hilarious! I would definitely watch it again, just for the giggles.

Don't Let 'Identity Theif' Steal Your Money

The previews/trailers for this movie show you the only & every good part. I expected a much better comedic script from a movie starting McCarthy. While the acting is pretty good, it doesn't matter if the movie is just plain stupid. This film seems to be filled with juvenile humor as well. If you're dying to watch it, rent it for as cheap ad possible. Its not worth the doe.

A comedy that steals your heart

With great comedic performances from both of the leads this laugh filled romp it was surprising to find that it also tugged on my heart strings as well. Melissa McCarthy is a brilliant actor who brings a wonderful depth to a character that could have easily been two dimensional. I highly enjoyed this film and recommend it to anyone who's looking for a movie that delivers the laughs with substance.

Good movie, but foul language over the top

Overall, the movie was funny at times, but the bad language was completely unnecessary at parts and it could have been even funnier without it. They did, however do a good job of mixing an emotional plot with comedy that could realistically be the lives of several people.
