Identity thief - not for everyone
I saw the movie tonight with my 15 year old avid movie-goer twins (boy and girl). They both fell asleep half-way through which never happens. If you're into watching a) loud multi-scenes of car crashes where the car is totally trashed and bodies fly through the air but no-one ever dies and b) bad guys chasing the bad guys and shooting each other but recover within minutes, then this may be for you.
I love both main actors so for me it was a real let down. There weren't any laugh out loud moments. Maybe a few chuckles here & there. However I do admit that I prefer comedies with smart quips & dry or intelligent humor whereas "Identity thief" contained more "silly-humor" such as people getting punched in the throat, kicked, smacked, hit by cars, etc .The movie is far-fetched, rather repetitive,and just too long. The beginning was good & appeared promising. The end, although predictable did entail some emotion and tugged at the heart strings, the rest, however - just plain silliness.
