I loved the movie. At first I didn't know what to think but the minute the movie starting I couldn't stop laughing for an hour and a half. It was the best movie I have seen in theaters and the best comedy I have ever seen. I recommend to anyone who wants to see a good comedy or just a great movie.

Very Funny ... Melissa makes the movie!

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.

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.

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!
