It was funny and cetainly gave me some laughs but I would not recomment bringing children as some of the scenes are very graphic and not for youngsters. I saw people there with kids and thought to myself that was not a very good idea. I have a friend that went to see it with her 12 year old daughter and she said she never should have taken her.

Not funny

Melissa McCarthy was great in Bridesmaids and she brings the same character to this movie. Unfortunately the gags that worked in a brief scene don't make for an hour and a half film. She's simply vulgar, un attractive in personality, and its hard to find the pushed upon sympathy the film tried for at the end. Supporting cast is great and Jason Bateman makes any film worth seeing. I tried to like this movie but it simply wasn't funny: it was vulgar. A decent Redbox rent but I'm disappointed we spent money to see this at the theater.

Funny, but....

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.

The film tries to mix comedy with crime and deviant sex and that, a good combination does not make... Hollywood tries too hard to appeal to too many audiences with this film. Either make a good comedy or a good hard core, gritty film. This movie just doesn't do either well. Lou in Reno, NV

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.
