"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.

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... read more

An average movie

“To be honest, I wasn't  expecting much from this flick but since I always had a weak spot for Jason Bateman, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out to be rather lame, I'm afraid. I mean, identity theft is a rather fascinating subject and I'm rather surprised that they don't try to make more movies about this subject. For some reasons, one of the first major production about this topic turned out to be a comedy and it seemed to be really tricky to try to deliver something funny about something so serious involving some victims whose life can be really shattered about such crimes. And, indeed, the whole thing never worked. I mean, they even ended up with such scenes involving Jason Bateman completely smashing a guitar on Melissa McCarthy. Seriously, that was” read more

Identity Issues



A funny but messy road trip comedy. Bateman and McCarthy have great chemistry but there are other unnecessary and unfunny characters involved that take too much focus off of what really makes this movie work.  In fact, there were multiple issues with the film's identity, it didn't seem to know what it wanted to be.

In the end, I was glad I saw it because it was good harmless fun and it made me laugh.

Extra points for shooting a road trip across the United States in the one state of Georgia.” read more
