Storyline Heading
With everything to lose after his identity is stolen, a regular guy will find out how crazed you can get trying to settle a bad credit score. Unlimited funds have allowed Diana to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There's only one glitch: The ID she's using to finance these sprees reads "Sandy Bigelow Patterson"... and it belongs to an accounts rep who lives halfway across the U.S.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This crude, silly comedy is basically a two-character mismatched buddy road comedy showcase for stars Jason Bateman and especially Melissa McCarthy. The latter star gives this film more female appeal than most of the films of its genre. Other recognizable stars such as John Cho, Jon Favreau, T.I., and Morris Chestnut have much smaller roles. Constant raunchy and crude humor and language make this film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Poor A lot of movies released into theaters deserve the label of 'bad.' Only a few cross the line into 'reprehensible.' Say hello to Identity Thief.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average 'Identity Thief' is a cheap copy of much better comedies.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average But this is McCarthy's film, beginning to end. And like Candy, she's showing range far beyond slapstick and physical humor. There's no mistaking the genius of this actress.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Poor 'Identity Thief' turns out to be not so much a major drag as a minor irritant, the kind of instantly forgettable nothing-burger for which the early months have become notorious.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 129 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! Males and females, of all ages, LOVED "IDENTITY THEIF." It's truly rare to see reviews this high for a simple comedy. This is one of the few movies that actually delivers what the preview trailer advertises, lots of humor and fun.
As normal, the critics are WAY OFF! Two of them rated it Poor and the other two didn't care much for it.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
HORRIBLE BOSSES' Jason Bateman and BRIDESMAIDS' Melissa McCarthy pair up to lead the cast of IDENTITY THIEF, an all-star comedy in which a regular guy is forced to extreme measures to clear his name.  With everything to lose after his identity is stolen, he'll find out how crazed you can get trying to settle a bad credit score.

Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Orlando, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy.  There's only one glitch: The ID she's using to finance these sprees reads "Sandy Bigelow Patterson"… and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S. in Denver  
Accused of a litany of crimes, the innocent man attempts to defend himself to police that are just as hamstrung and overworked as they are disinterested in his protestations.  Left with just one option, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson must head south to track her down himself.

With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, Sandy hits the road to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life.  And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Colorado, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.
