Identity Thief (2013)


[an average comedy]

Identity Thief (2013)
IMDB- 5.8
Rottentomatoes- 23%
RJG Rating- 65

Sandy gets his identity stolen by Diana , a master at identity theft.

Starring- Jason Bateman,Melissa McCarthy
Director- Seth Gordon

The movie's main attraction is the star cast.Jason Bateman & Mellissa rock the show from start to finish.Both are at ease and carry the movie at full speed.Both have a certain charm and are equally matched.They have good comic timing and both have enough star power to maintain the show on their own.

The story for IT is a sort of new concept dealing with identity theft.Although it isnt too bright either.The story is simple but isnt too predictable.

Direction by Seth Gordon is good.The pacing of the moving was good too.The comedy could have been much better especially when you have talented stars such as Jason & Melissa at hand.The reaction to IT is mixed.Its a pleasant watch and doesnt dull at any point of time ,but its also not satisfactory and turns into a one time affair.

Overall ,Identity Theft is not too bad nor any good, its a one time watch especially due to the bright performances of the lead.

Acting- 4/5
Story- 3/5
Direction- 3/5
Comedy- 2.5/5
