s there a heart-wrenching back story to explain why Diana is the way she is? Yes. Did I laugh? Yes.

Director Seth Gordon's best film since his brilliant debut, "The King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters."

Sure, the two leads deserve better material, but there are enough laughs here to make up for a lot of creative mistakes-casting isn't one of them.

Without the irrepressible force of comic mayhem that is Melissa McCarthy, road-movie comedy Identity Thief would end up in the ditch. Luckily, the Bridesmaids co-star barrels her way through the plot's stickiest patches.

Identity Thief isn't a great comedy in the class of McCarthy's Bridesmaids, but it's still a decent one ...

Identity Theft is perfectly performed, often wildly funny, and a great movie night option for the not-easily-embarrassed.

[A] funny, though formulaic, mismatched-duo comedy ...

It's not perfect, but it is a wild 'n' crazy road trip on the lighter side of a topic that, as a lot of folks have discovered, is no laughing matter.

Bateman and McCarthy elevate the material to a higher level than it should have.

Even with all its shortcomings and sentimental fudges, there is something about McCarthy's refusal to lie down and play the victim that gives it a comic edge. A blunt edge, to be sure, but an edge all the same.

What keeps "Identity Thief" from being totally derailed is (Melissa) McCarthy's performance. She is a wonderful physical comedian who can elicit laughs just by running on a highway.

[Identity Thief] exhausts most of the comic potential from identity theft in the first 20 minutes and then turns into a solid but unexceptional road picture.

Chemistry is the reason things click. Actors with the ability to connect their characters to you always overcome a multitude of movie sins.
February 8, 2013
Laugh out loud funny with bravura performances by Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman and a terrific supporting cast.
February 8, 2013
Really, this a two-hander that unfolds at two distinctly separate speeds.
February 8, 2013
Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy make a terrific comedy team in this road trip romp.

McCarthy is a worthy successor to John Candy, who also had a gift for warming up caricatures with loveable humanity.

For a movie that's essentially a gender-scrambled version of Midnight Run, Identity Thief is an amiable rip-off.
February 7, 2013
For all of its extraneous subplots and contrived scripting [the film's] got one decidedly potent weapon in the form of the fearless dynamo Melissa McCarthy.
February 7, 2013
Its stars, Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, steal so many laughs from such improbable places that the bumps in this revenge/road trip farce can be mostly forgiven, though not forgotten.
