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.

Trailer is way funnier than a movie

So like the title of this review "Trailer of this Movie" was funnier than this movie. The other thing is this movie is way too long. Too many "Corny" moments. So its just ok.

This movie was much more crude and much less funny than I thought it would be from watching the trailer. I can't recommend it to anyone.

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.

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!
