Customer Reviews

This movie is just really, really bad.
Faeorain
The plot was bad, the intended humor was predictable, and the film lacked a likable character.
Drew
This was a good movie, very funny we had a good laugh from it.

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+.

Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy (Jenny's cousin, in case you didn't know) team up in this road trip comedy focusing around the identity theft.

Sandy (Bateman) is a financial accountant with an extremely important jump for little pay or recognition. In fact, his boss gets his name wrong even though he's worked there for many years and degrades him to no end. Sandy decides to join a start up company to start making the money he deserves. Bad timing intervenes, as his credit cards and ids have been stolen by a professional con artist/identity thief (McCarthy). She goes on major shopping sprees (a Fiat, jet ski, several rounds of drinks for an entire bar, etc.) and quickly ruins Sandy's credit. Because the Denver police cannot work with the Florida police (which seemed extremely absurd by the way), he flies down to Florida to confront her and bring her to Denver to answer for her crimes.

Because they both have the same identity, they realize flying is out of the question. Instead, they drive the entire way and meet up with a strange cast of characters during their journey.

This movie did have its laugh out loud funny moments, but it was definitely pushing the envelope timewise. It ended just short of 2 hours total. They should have looked for places that could have been cut, like when they were being chased by 2 separate groups of people. Seriously, 1 wasn't enough? It was OK for a few chuckles the first time around, but not something I'd want to watch again.
