Maybe it's my sense of humor, but I thought this was hilarious. Thought Jason and Melissa were awesome together, and it reminded you how easy it is to lose your identity!

We went in a group of 4 and I was laughing so hard in parts that I was crying! Totally worth seeing at the theater- Melissa McCarthy is so outrageous compared to Jason Bateman's straight laced character! We had a lot of fun and were glad we went. Can't wait for The Heat to hit the theaters as we'll be there!

Thought this movie was absolutely hilarious. A must see --- for ADULTS.
We went on a Saturday afternoon to see the movie. It is "R" rated. I was extremely disappointed seeing about ten (10) children at the theater and felt very uncomfortable when some scenes were showing. I guess these parents are the ones who wonder why their children get into trouble. Shame on them. I think that the movie theaters should not allow anyone in an "R" rated movie under the age of 17, even if they are accompanied by an adult.

My girlfriend is a big Melissa McCarthy fan and I've loved Jason Bateman's comedic skills forever. This movie was NO disappointment!
First, I loved the way they used a woman to steal a man's identity based on his first name.
Second, there were some wonderful lines (thank-you, writers!). Jason's "I'm just a decent guy" naiveté played well, especially when he mentioned his sock money.
I suffer with Systemic Lupus and severe Fibromyalgia, and both times when Melissa used the Fibro as an excuse/distraction, I laughed so hard I nearly came out of my seat. "Ow! My Fibromyalgia! It's going right down my back!" LOL. This worked comedically, because the illness doesn't hit you that way.
Finally, this story and the characters had a fantastic arc. Near the end, they both realised something crucial about themselves and the other, so the ending was very sweet. But you don't see the final comedy coming at all. GO SEE IT! The theatre was roaring. You won't be sorry.

Not every movie is an Oscar contender... This movie delivered plenty of laughs and some heartfelt / tender moments. We are already big fans of the cast, most especially Melissa .... She is a great physical and visually expressive comic. Yes, these movies are a bit predictable, but there is enough fun here to make this a very enjoyable movie.
