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.
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 like the actors in the movie. But none of the jokes landed for us.
I would look elsewhere, maybe rotten tomatoes or metacritic, for an actual review of the film. I'm just trying to give a quick product style review of the movie so you can decide whether it's worth spending money on.
In my opinion, since it's a comedy (ostensibly) and it didn't provide myself or my wife with very many good laughs, I think I'm justified in saying that it might not fully meet your expectations; it didn't meet mine and they were already fairly low. Also, it's worth noting that there are some strangely mixed messages about body image in this movie that are distracting. But again, that's somewhat subjective.
Bottom line, based on my experience, I cannot give this movie more than two stars and I regret purchasing it. BUT I would hope that anyone who is on the fence would visit the aforementioned sites or at least read some other reviews, since it's so hard to give an objective rating to a film. If you do decide to rent or buy it, I hope you enjoy it.

Why this didn't work is beyond me. The cast is pretty good even the small parts have such comedic talents as Elie Kemper, Jon Favreau, Ben Falcone, Eric Stonestreet and John Cho. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Brian Maitland
