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.

Great Laughs with a Dash of Feel Good...

So let's not over analyze this movie... just go! Great cast, too many unecessary villans, but stand out comedy performances by McCarthy and Stonestreet! Bateman always does a great job as the responsible, vanilla family man. A wild ride with many shenanigans along the way. One very funny adult scene, so don't take your young-uns!

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.
