REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

“..with "Identity Thief," Melissa McCarthy proves she's got what it takes to carry a feature, however meager the underlying material..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..uninspired trudge of a road movie is the biggest waste of all..”
by Bob Mondello [NPR]
“..stereotypes, gun violence, visual cliches and cruel comedy..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
2.5 of 4

“..preposterous, goofy and a clear ripoff of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Identity still manages to make off with just enough laughs to work, thanks to the wondrous McCarthy..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
2 of 5

“..painfully flat..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..it's just a movie, with a dramatic arc that's supposed to make all that mean stuff drift away into the ether as friendship is born, but it's that look that hangs around like a bad smell..”
by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine]
“..is so bad it's hard to believe it wasn't directed by Judd Apatow or the Farrelly Brothers..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..another rough comic movie road trip helps give car travel a bad name..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
