Iden­tity Thief

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

Ja­son Bate­man plays an every­man whose on­line iden­tity is stolen by a re­tail-ad­dicted con artist (Melissa McCarthy, the scene-stealer from Brides­maids). Laughs and mix­ups etc en­sue. They say: Praise for the cast and not much else from overseas crit­ics, with the package writ­ten off as laugh-free and strained. We­say: Even though the pieces are all in place – good comic ac­tors, great premise and a ca­pa­ble di­rec­tor in Seth Gor­don ( King of Kong) – Iden­tity Thief adds up to very lit­tle. Maybe catch it free-to-air. Maybe. (Report, Page 11.) Run­ning time 107 min­utes. Screens at Robina, Coolan­gatta, Pa­cific Fair, Aus­tralia Fair, Nerang, Yatale Drive-in, Tweed City, Har­bour Town.
