Love Melissa and Jason! The whole audience was laughing along with this movie. I do admit that it dragged just a bit in a couple of places but, all in all, well worth the trip and money. Be advised that there are a couple of areas unsuitable for the very staunch or young persons, also.

If you're looking for a romp with multiple "laugh out loud" scenes, good coherence
of plot and a bit of appropriately placed sentimentality, this is your film!
Melissa McCarthy is brilliantly funny using both her physical comedy and her well-honed
stand-up ad lib skills to supply the films biggest laughs; this only works playing off Jason Bateman's straight man act, whcih is the best in the business after Ben Stiller.
T.I,, Robert Patrick and Eric Stonetreet all deliver good performances in supporting roles
with some character depth, while John Cho and Amanda Peet, good actors in thier own right, cannot overcome the shallowness of their scripted roles.
All in all this is a fun movie I would highly reccomend.

My husband fell asleep 3 times during the movie. I was excited to see the movie as the previews looked hilarious. When the movie was getting started it seemed really slow, but i assumed after it got going it would grab my attention. I was wrong, the whole movie was just blah. A few funny moments, but all together the movie was a waste of a moive ticket. Disappointed, wait till it comes out to Redbox, and even then I think $1.00 is too much to pay for that movie.

It wasn't as much of a comedy and I had hoped. I questioned how "Identity Thief/Theft" could be a comedy. I walked away giving it a 5-6 and feeling that there may be a certain message coming from the movie. The message may be that this is a good person that has had so many struggles in life and that it is not our place to judge. We do not know the pain that someone may be going through that leads them in chosing the wrong roads. I liked how he saw her pain of her past and reached out to help her in ways that it changed both their lives. Thumbs up.
