John & Becky’s Movie Review Of Identity Thief

identitythiefBecky and I went to see the new movie Identity Thief at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO on opening week.  The Fandango website at Identity Thief describes the movie as follows…

“Florida resident Diana (Melissa McCarthy) has a luxurious lifestyle as the queen of retail, buying whatever strikes her fancy — and it’s all free, thanks to Sandy Bigelow Patterson (Jason Bateman), a guy from Denver whose identity she stole. With just one week to track down Diana before his world implodes, the real Sandy heads south to confront the unapologetic con artist and bring her back to Denver so that he can clear his name and restore his shattered credit rating...”

The Review: Identity Thief  is a comedy with two funny characters and comedic actors, about a guy (Bateman) who gets his identity stolen by a crazy woman (McCarthy) down in Florida, that is over the top wild.  He decides to go down and try to bring her back to Denver, so that he can clear his name and get his life back, which makes for a very funny set of situations.

This movie is pretty predictable and ridiculous at times, but it will make you laugh.  It’s not one of the best comedies I’ve seen and there are a couple of situations that are disturbing or at least over-the-top, but it’s funny enough that we all laughed.   It got a little too serious at times, toward the end of the film, that created some problems with the movie.

Becky and I both liked it and our older son Conroy really liked it .  This is not a great movie, but if you like a good laugh then it’s worth the trip otherwise it’s a rental.

John – ** Rental
Becky – *** Worth The Trip

Conroy – **** Don’t Miss It
