Identity Theft

This film relies on situational comedy. The dialogue’s humor often occurs only when profanity emerges. It is well acted with Melissa McCarthy demonstrating great slapstick comedy talents. Jason Bateman proves again he is the master of being the straight man as the world collapses into comedic insanity around him. The plot requires much suspension of belief, The supporting characters are often ill defined and fail to connect with the audience, save for the wife and children. As the supporting characters are weakly created, they often are a sudden distraction with mostly far fetched reasons for popping into the story. A major plus for the film is one is often unsure how the movie will end and that upholds interest. The ending is indeed one that is overall satisfying.
