One of the worst comedies I have ever seen,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Identity Thief [DVD]  (DVD)
I bought this DVD, on the basis of some good reviews and I also like Jason Bateman. I had never heard of Melissa McCarthy, or seen her in anything else. What a mistake I made. This "comedy" was the most boring, unfunny pile of crap that I have seen in a long time. Honestly, I have laughed more at old Carry On films than this pathetic, juvenile effort. At least they were funny, unlike this rubbish. I think that I only laughed once during the whole film, it really was that bad. This film was mercilessly slated by some of the critics and I wish that I had forgone my usual distrust of critics and listened to them for once. I would have saved myself two hours of my life and some cash wasted too. I am tempted to take this into the exchange shop to sell it, but then I would feel guilty for palming it off on somebody else. If you love comedies, or you want something that is genuinely funny, then this is not for you. I have now completely changed my opinion of Seth Gordon and Jason Bateman. This is the worst excuse for a comedy that I have seen for a long time. One star from me,for this total crap, though even that is too high for this. Awful, awful film.
