Very funny movie!

This was a great movie! Very funny. Both Melissa and Jason did a great job. It does make me wonder how easy it is for identity thieves to steal someone's identity. Pretty scary how much it can potentially destroy someone's life. I sure hope the police are more helpful than what they were portrayed in this movie. Yikes! Throughout the movie, I could hear a 3 year old little boy ask his mommy why certain things were happening. THIS IS NOT A KIDS MOVIE. COME ON PEOPLE...SERIOUSLY!!! DON'T TAKE YOUR SMALL CHILDREN TO A MOVIE THAT SHOWS NUDITY AND CLEARLY IS FOR ADULT AUDIENCES ONLY. ITS NOT FAIR TO THOSE AROUND YOU WHO HAVE TO HEAR YOU TRY TO EXPLAIN IT AND ITS MOST DEFINITELY NOT FAIR TO YOUR INNOCENT CHILD TO BE EXPOSED TO INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT!!! HIRE A SITTER!!

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.

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 Theft Of My Time

The movie was mildly entertaining, but I would not recommend anyone rush to see it. It was basically a rehash of previous films of the same type. Jason Bateman's talents were wasted....this was basically a movie showcasing Mellisa McCarthy; who was way funnier in "Bridesmaids". It also tries to paint very bad people as victims of society. Not a good lesson for children!

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.
