People on this page are on crack. This movie was HILARIOUS and great. Unlike most movies in general, they get right to the point in the beginning, instead of taking 25 minutes to get there. I don't really feel like there was a down time the whole movie. The movie keeps surprising you, just when you think it's gonna go one place, it goes another. The ending surprises you. McCarthy and Bateman play off each other GREAT.

This was the best comedy I'd seen in a while, but, The Heat is even funnier.

No, identity theft is not too humorous. But then why do Americans rush to see the destruction of the US Capitol, the planet being attacked by ETs, in animation yet, vampires crawling all over the country, etc., etc., etc. That's healthy?

Justin Bateman is the worst! I must admit that Mc Carthy 's willingness to keep plugging away in hopelessly dry humor is something we can hope will rub-off on Bateman. He is a vapid SoCal alleged actor that brings nothing to the table. I find it just amazing that his lack of comedic timing or ability to lend some verve or pop into tiresome scripts has not earned him a lifetime position on Adam Sandler's team of talentless actors. I really believe an actor like McCarthy is freed-up by her heavy weight and absence of looksto really play it to the absolute hilt almost of the capacity animation does for physical comedy....We will see much more of her(pardon) and hopefully Bateman will join his sister in retirement...

One could infer that such a mistake is a sign of an overly-fervent naysayer whose argument doesn't hold water, considering Bateman's half-decent body of work as a comedic actor.

What a stupid opinion. Bateman is a nice guy and reliable comedic actor. You must be the only person on the face of the planet dumb enough to call him unfunny. What's wrong, not enough frying pans getting banged on heads? Makes sense you would be into a chunker like McCarthy who's only appeal is being exploited on screen as one big fat joke for easy laughs.

There is NOTHING funny about identity theft. It is horrible, agonizing, and take forever to fix. Not to mention the $$$$!

Don't care who's in it. Wouldn't go to see it if it was free.

Chase is a troll, guys. All he does is show up on a movie's board before the film comes out and says it looks stupid. Don't feed him. Let him live under his lonely bridge in isolation.

Do you even know what a troll is? I did that with 3 movies. This one, Movie, 43, and The Haunting in CT 2. So far, I'm 2 for 2. I create threads like these because I'm generally right, and because I get bored when I'm not working on my own portfolio. Not that it's any of your business. Get used to me, because I'm not going anywhere, dude.

A "thread" that doesn't seem to serve a purpose or make much of a statement.

It's in reference to the OP calling the movie a "comedy", which, best I can tell, he is using the parenthesis in an ironic context, since he doesn't seem to think the movie has much potential as a comedy since the plot of the movie is based around identity theft.

Here, I'm using the word "thread" ironically. To me, an internet thread typically consists of the OP either making a statement and then backing up their viewpoint with evidence to support their statement, or posing a question to open up a debate or conversation. I use the word "thread" here ironically, because the original poster has not really done either of these things.

I've been on the internet long enough to know that there are a large number of cases where threads exist solely to incite anger or vent some sort of rage caused by some other aspect of the internet users life, but the less cynical side of me likes to think the internet can still be used for objective discussion. Then again, maybe that's just a sign I'm growing old. 10 years from now, the internet may have no value, except as a verbal battleground for socially awkward teenage virgins to launch homophobic remarks at each other.

Of course then again, maybe I'm putting way too much thought into having an adult discussion about a movie that could end up being complete garbage.

I don't see how qualifies as a "fight", hollis. I'm just wondering why Chase felt the need to make this.

well i just thought this would escalate but it hasnt, so sorry. and by fight i meant like a internet fight, you know, like what you would do to a serious troll. but it seems no one is a troll here.

A comedy about drug dealing? A comedy about poverty? A comedy about identity crisis? A comedy about substance abuse? A comedy about burglary? A comedy about murder? A comedy about rogue scientists? A comedy about obesity?

Sorry that all comedies aren't cute like Pixar films.... Oh wait, they have films about mass extinction and genocide, child torture, murder....pollution to the point of non existing...

From the premise of your title, and following statement it appeared as though you were saying through a sarcastic tone, "There is nothing funny about identity theft." To which I made my subsequent rebuttal.

Sorry that you felt the need to create a thread with such a small amount of context and not expect someone to make this inference.
