“Identity Thief” starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy opened Feb. 8. Have you seen it yet? Here's what our reviewer thought. Leave your comments below.
Maybe it was the pitchers of Blue Moon at the San Marco Theatre that left me pleased, but I enjoyed the flick and feel it was money and time well-spent. Sure it swung a missed a time or two, but I wasn't prepared for a masterpiece, either.
Pretty much agree with your reviewer - the first part was sad in many places. The best part of the movie was watching Melissa McCarthy's immediate transformation from a horrible person to pathetic to vulnerable. Some of the slapstick was kind of funny, and several scenes in the 2nd half were very funny - at least no one died in this entire movie. That entire hotel scene could have been omitted. I was wishing we'd gone to see "Quartet" - our original plan. Next time.
