  • Watch the trailer, if you must, but spare yourself the full experience: Identity Thief steals time. show more

  • In some ways, Identity Thief is a raunchier variation on another recent odd-couple road pic: Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen as overbearing mom and nebbish son in "The Guilt Trip." show more

  • With Melissa McCarthy playing a one-woman demolition team who, for 95 percent of the running time, is a genuine affront to nature, there are unavoidably some laughs here, although the gifted comic actor got more of them in less screen time in her previous films than she does in this starring role. show more

    I couldn\'t finish watching it. After an hour I didn\'t care what happened, I just wanted it to stop.

    This movie is about average for a comedy. Some parts of the plot are exaggerated. It seems to attract more of the chick-flick audience due to Melissa McCarthy. Your girlfriend might enjoy this movie more than you.
