Identity Thief Reviews
Yes you would be rightly mistaken in thinking this was some sort of heart wrenching drama, it?s not, it?s supposed to be a comedy. I didn?t laugh once if I?m honest. The storyline is terrible and the antagonist, even though she?s supposed to be likeable, really isn?t at all. Ok, somewhere through the last act she?s made slightly more human so she?s not a complete monster, nether the less she?s not someone you?d want to associate with.
This film tried to do a sort of Planes, Trains and Automobiles with the whole ?we don?t like each other but we?re forced into a situation where we end up becoming friends? thing. It didn?t work at all, the characters and story were not funny.
The film completely relies on Melissa McCarthy for the humour and I?m sorry but she?s not good enough to carry a whole film. She was great in Bridesmaids as a token character but that?s it.
