Seth Gordon’s Identity Thief is now playing at Coronado Village Theatre. It is a comedy about a lone criminal who makes a living stealing identities off of chumps who are all too trusting. However, her line of work is put to a halt when her most recent victim comes searching for her to fix his crumbling life. Initially, I was worried that the previews had exposed all the comedic moments of the film; however, I was wonderfully surprised to see that the movie as a whole was hilarious and engaging. Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman are a dynamic duo in the film, creating humor in all the bizarre obstacles they face.
“The movie was so funny. I love Melissa McCarthy and it was great to see other actors from Bridesmaids make appearances in the film,” said Sarah, a fellow movie-goer. While some moments of the film are predictable, the ending is something that few expected. The movie is appropriately rated R with lots of sexual content, and humorous as it may be, it certainly isn’t recommended for younger audiences. Identity Thief is a light-hearted comedy full of odd, hilarious moments. Be sure to check it out!
