  • Identity Thief is not only not funny. It's negative funny. It's short on laughs, but it will disturb and annoy. show more

  • Preposterous, goofy and a clear ripoff of “Planes, Trains and Automobiles,” Identity still manages to make off with just enough laughs to work, thanks to the wondrous McCarthy, one of the few actresses in Hollywood allowed to showcase her wit and charisma as much as her physique. show more

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