Product Description

Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses) and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) lead an all-star cast in this hilarious blockbuster hit. Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Orlando. There’s only one glitch: she’s financing her shopping sprees with an ID stolen from Sandy Patterson (Bateman), an accounts rep who lives halfway across the U.S. With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Patterson is forced to extreme measures to clear his name. From the director of Horrible Bosses and the producer of Ted, critics are calling Identity Thief “smart, funny and surprisingly touching” – Rafer Guzman, Newsday.

Amazon.com

Identity Thief is a hilarious romp/caper featuring the comedic skills of Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) and Jason Bateman (Up in the Air, Arrested Development. Whoever had the casting idea to hire these two as the leads was on to something. While the script for Identity Thief may be a bit weak and predictable, the chemistry of the film's two stars gives it more than its share of belly laughs. McCarthy stars as Diana, a credit-card scammer, and Bateman is Sandy, a straight-laced executive who becomes a victim of her fraud. Sandy takes it upon himself to track Diana down and bring her to justice. Identity Thief echoes some of the best bits of Midnight Run (and Bateman himself seems to be paying homage to that film's costar, Charles Grodin). Identity Thief gets its personality and true moments of comedy from the interplay of the odd-couple stars. The supporting cast is strong, including Eric Stonestreet, Amanda Peet, T.I., and Jon Favreau, though they ultimately seem a little superfluous. Which is totally fine, because with the interaction of the two stars, and especially the fearless performance of Melissa McCarthy, Identity Thief will stealthily steal your heart. --A.T. Hurley

    If you enjoyed Jason Batemen as the put-upon, sane family member/lead in the short-lived TV series Arrested Development, you will probably enjoy him here. If you enjoyed Melissa McCarthy's in Bridesmaids, you will find many more moments of genius lunacy.

    My one fear was that the trailer had all the funny set pieces, but not by a long shot. The movie was funnier.

    This is a movie in the Hollywood tradition of road trips from hell on a deadline. (Think Rat Race or Trains, Planes and Automobiles.) I also found the revelations about her background made the outcome more satisfying. I'm happily in the 'it's a darn funny movie' camp.

    I suspect other reviewers who hated it will mark this 'unhelpful,' but that just goes to show you. Take those negatives with grain of salt. I believe you will enjoy it, if you enjoyed the movie trailer of it.

    Identity Thief is a movie about a mild-mannered businessman Sandy Patterson (Bateman) who travels from Denver to Miami to confront the deceptively harmless-looking woman (McCarthy) who has been living it up after stealing Sandy's identity.

    This movie is definitely not the funniest I have ever seen but it does have its moments that will make you laugh although sometimes straying into the area of bad taste. At times the jokes miss more than make you laugh and sometimes makes you cringe but Identity Thief does soften up at the end and comes across as being a somewhat sweet comedy in the end despite some of the cringe worthy jokes.

    I will give McCarthy credit as she does about anything to get a laugh even with physical comedy and she is not afraid to ham it up for the camera.

    This movie is definitely not in the league of some of the funnier movies I have seen (like Hangover or 40 year old virgin) but isn't bad and will keep you entertained. I did expect more laughs though but this movie ends up being more cute than a laugh out loud comedy.

    I think the biggest problem with movie goers these days is they all expect this amazing life changing movie whenever they go to see a movie. But this is not what I look for when I go see a movie I just go to have fun and get away from real life for a little bit and that's what this movie did for me. This movie is honestly the funniest movie I have ever seen I was laughing throughout the whole movie and it wasn't like I was waiting bored for the next laugh because it kept me interested and satisfied in between the laughs. The movie even had a little heart in it with Melissa McCarthy's character and she developed throughout the movie and became someone that was respectable even though she is stealing people's identities left and right. I honestly loved this movie so much and people can say all they want about it I thought it was perfectly scripted, super funny, and a little touching. I would recommend this to honestly every person I know.

    "Friends don't steal friends identities, do they?" Sandy Patterson (Bateman) seems to have everything going for him. Wife and kids that love him and he is starting a new job that pays him $200,000 more then his old one. Everything is going great until the cops come which causes his job to be in jeopardy. Trying to convince everyone that he was never arrested in Florida and his back to the wall Sandy has one choice. He must go find the person who stole his identity and bring her back to Denver. This is a movie that is really funny but only for one reason, the cast. This movie could have been very flat and generic but with Melissa McCarthy as the thief she really upped the funny and she is the reason this is worth seeing. I'm not 100% sure but it felt like she was improving most of her part and Bateman doing what he does best (playing the straight man) makes this movie much funnier then it could have been. The cast alone makes the movie worth seeing. Overall, a movie with a weak plot made hilarious by the perfect casting. I give it a B+.

    I loved, loved, loved this movie in the theater! Fair warning - if you are offended by the F-word, this isn't the movie for you. Can't wait to see it again and again! Probably one of the funniest movies I've seen, maybe ever!

    I like both actors but the movie just didn't make me laugh the way I was expecting it too. It's a free Netflix movie.

    As other reviewers have reported, this was such a mindless attempt at comedy. I can be entertained by good guys, by really evil bad guys, and even by inept and bumbling detectives. But I cannot stand irritating and obnoxious characters like the one played by McCarthy in this stupid comedy. Example: just how funny can it be to hit someone on the throat and then run away? Or how about slamming a guitar against someone's head? It's slapstick a la Three Stooges without the talent. This movie does not have the right ingredients for a decent movie. Maybe selected scenes might work out for a 5-minute skit on Saturday Night Live. Awful, awful, awful. The movie never got better so we stopped it at about the half-way mark. Ten-year-olds might enjoy the mindless sitcom flavor of this disaster of a movie.

    Identity Thief is a truly polarizing movie. From reading the reviews you can gather that you either will love this movie or hate it. I watched this with three others of mixed ages and all four of us thought it was one of the worst movies we've seen in quite a while - if I could rate it a zero I would have and no one gave it more than a two.
    I think it depends on what you view as a funny movie. If you like witty dialogue and unexpected plot turns built on common human frailties, or just slapstick fun, you'll be disappointed, I promise you.
    If you enjoy watching a dysfunctional witch who represents a too-common class of uncaring criminals in real life (identity thieves) and see her portrayed as an unfortunate victim of childhood abandonment who only learns true values in life when dragged across country by a too-caring, too normal middle-class guy as they `bond' while haplessly enduring situations that keep jumping from harrowing, violent, humiliating, hectic, and yes, occasionally near-humorous - you'll love this movie. Attempts at humor during car-chases ending in violent collisions they walk away from, lots of initial hitting and punching each other, name-calling, a bizarre scene with a pick-up in a bar that winds up in suggested, very-abnormal sex with a goofy `conservative' cowboy in a hotel-room (instead of funny we all found it disturbing), and the constant on-the-run avoidance of thugs who are out to kill her (them) seem to be written in at random places to fill the car journey with `crazy, hilarious mayhem'.
