Absolutely hilarious movie. My wife and I have been looking forward to seeing this movie since the first time we saw the previews. It absolutely lived up to our expectations and then some!! We also liked the (mostly) realistic ending that made the movie more believable.

Ok, I have to admit that I was actually looking forward to seeing this because both leads are hilarious and I've thoroughly enjoyed them in other movies. However, I don't know I wasn't really feeling their dynamic in this. While they both remained funny, together, for me atleast it didn't work. I did laugh however at bits during the movie and afterwards was even a little sympathetic towards McCarthy's character. I would recommend that you ask your friends who've already seen it for their opinions before you go, just because I'd assume you would all have similar senses of humor. I didn't think it was a universally funny movie like these two are known for making.

Not for kids. It was very funny. Molly is laughing all the way to the bank. Critics are very degrading about her weight. Shame on them. Ha Ha to them!!!! Go see it. Three stars.

Great date movie!! me & my fiance' went to see for Valentines Day & he was a bit hesitant because he thought Jason Bateman may be dry & the movie might me corny..butttttttt.... HE LOVED IT & its a comedy / min drama/ message kind of a movie. Had some sorta sad, downer moments, but right when you wanna grab that tissue, Mrs. McCarthy in true form brings you to tears of LAUGHTER !! this is the FUNNIEST i have ever seen Jason Bateman, & it was quiet refreshing! I know the "society of CRITICS" do not like it, but HELLO, when they usually "RAVE" about a movie most folks usually HATE IT ! lol, i think secretly they get paid to hype a movie up ! lol, guess the creators of Identity Theft did not get that memo & said screw em & their uptight, have no sense of humor behinds ! :) I say go see it & you will definitely get many laughs & enjoyment ! & WHO DOESNT WANNA FEEL JOYFUL ??? :)

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!
