Aggressively forgettable

"Friends don't steal friends' identities, do they?"

Identity Thief is neither as gut-bustingly funny as it should have been, nor as bad as it's been made out to be. Directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) and written by Craig Mazin (The Hangover: Part II), the movie is fundamentally a comedic showcase for its two leads: sublime straight man Jason Bateman and up-and-coming comedy d... read more

A slight yet amiable comedy about, what else, redemption. Fairly predictable but I enjoyed Melissa McCarthy. I wouldn't want you to spend your money here, certainly not at an overpriced theater. A simple little time-killer for Netflix streaming or the like. Similar to the conclusion of an Ebert review I read recently, if you go in with low expectations, you should be fairly satisfied.

Waste of Time!!!!

What a waste of my money really just and terrible movie maybe a couple funny parts but for the most part this movie just annoyed me. Jason Batman and Melissa McCarthy are mostly gold in other movies but this time it was just awful. I guess that's whats what happens on valentines day and you let the girl pick the movie. =D

When a mild-mannered businessman learns his identity has been stolen, he hits the road in an attempt to foil the thief -- a trip that puts him in the path of a deceptively harmless-looking woman.

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: May (30 movies items)

"May 16 "You know what, you're crazy!" "Yep. Diagnosed and everything." It does have a funny joke every now and then, but for the most part it's just a really unfunny movie and I really hate how they try to make you sympathize with Melissa McCarthy's character by adding in an emotionally manipulative life story.

Good man, bad woman and one hell adventure

“Little fun adventurous popcorn movie. It was an average movie, Melissa

MacCarthy was really good and without her it would have been unworthy

to see or mention. Jason Bateman was only a good man of the story but

Melissa controlled the movie who is actually a thief. Her impressive

acting from the movie 'The Heat' is still fresh in my eyes which made

this movie a bit curious.

Sandy is a married and hard working man but he's struggling to pay to

lead a normal life from his earnings. He did not realize someone is

behind it who stole his identity and spending his money till he was

arrested. When the law gives thumbs down and so his company, he takes

all the risk of his own and go a trip to find th” read more

Aggressively forgettable

“"Friends don't steal friends' identities, do they?"

Identity Thief is neither as gut-bustingly funny as it should have been, nor as bad as it's been made out to be. Directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) and written by Craig Mazin (The Hangover: Part II), the movie is fundamentally a comedic showcase for its two leads: sublime straight man Jason Bateman and up-and-coming comedy dynamo Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids). Although the movie has a few good laughs here and there, it's an aggressively forgettable affair, with its simple premise becoming overcomplicated and overextended. It's not that the movie is bad per se, it's just lazy, and the fun is often spoiled by flawed scripting.

Deserving

“I'm going to try to write a review here that stays on target.

This is a good movie, so I'm going to try to.... give it a little, respect or whatever. Not every movie made about the past is really worthy, and not every movie about the simple present is not deserving.

This movie had great character relations. It was a character movie.

But, that's where I have to hold myself, if I'm going to keep this brief.

"Jason Bateman's in it and it has the director of Horrible Bosses which was a funny movie, but I wish it had a better writer because the guy who is writing it was involved with Superhero Movie which was one of the worst movies I've seen. The trailer is mildly amusing, so it probably won't be horrible, but I'm not sure if it's going to be good."
