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 basically the level of the humor displayed in this movie. To  make things worse, not only the jokes were often cringe-inducing but it was also fairly unconvincing. I mean, of course, they went on a road-trip which must be the most overused gimmick ever but how could they bond like this?  Seriously, because of her, the guy had no money left, he will probably loose his job as well but, still, he actually sympathized with her but for what reason exactly? Anyway, eventually, thanks to Bateman and  McCarthy who did what they could with this material, it was still watchable but, even so, I don't think it is really worth a look.
