Identity Thief

Rated R 111 minutes 2013

Cashing in on her Oscar-nominated turn in Bridesmaids, Melissa McCarthy gets a headlining role alongside Jason Bateman in Identity Thief. While both performers are talented and make the best of the crap heap of a script they are handed, it’s not enough to make this anything more than a desperate misfire. From the director of Horrible Bosses, this is just another riff on Planes, Trains and Automobiles minus much of the fun. Bateman plays a sorry sap who has his identity stolen by a weirdo (McCarthy). He gets into some legal troubles, and vows to capture the thief and bring her back to his hometown. So it’s another odd couple road movie, and pretty exploitative when it comes to McCarthy. She’s a talented woman, and she deserves much better than this.
