6/10 Fun movie. Light comedy, worth watching as long as you are not expecting a great movie or a roll on the floor laughing (ROFL) movie.

Identity Thief Movie ReviewJason Bateman (Sandy) gets his identity stolen by the very funny Melissa McCarthy (Dianna). IMDB synopsis: Mild-mannered businessman Sandy Patterson travels from Denver to Miami to confront the deceptively harmless-looking woman who has been living it up after stealing Sandy’s identity.

This is a cute movie that grows on you. A little slow in the beginning but starts to pick up once Bateman gets to Florida to confront McCarthy. A little “over-the-top” now and then, but all in all worth renting.

My wife gave it 6/10 – good, but a little silly at times. She enjoyed it and would recommend it to a friend.

IMDB rates it 5.2/10 . I must have been in a relaxed mood when we watched it and found it entertaining enough to give it a 6.

  1. The mainstream Hollywood companies can no longer dictate specifically what the movie-going public really want or will get as they have during the past. Whenever you add to that distribution on the internet, news reports websites online, from gossip to complete films. It’s a really whole new society. Some of it good, some not.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Dan! Checked your website… you take movie reviews to a much higher level. Well done. Check out Dan’s site here.

  3. It just ends up being another cheap knockoff of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, and a bad one at that. Good review Bon.
