Identity Thief 2013: Movie Review

No comments :

Title: Identity Thief
Language: English
Genre: Comedy/ Crime
Running Time: 111 Minute

When his bills don't add up and charged with violation of the rules that was not done by him, mild-mannered businessman Sandy Patterson travels from Denver to Miami to confront the deceptively harmless-looking woman who has been living it up after stealing Sandy's identity. He needs her to confess in order for him to be clear of the charges. - Adopted from IMDB

What do I think about it:-

When you push too hard, you really push too hard. Identity Thief drops the ball so hard that the asphalt in which main actress Melissa McCartney falls on in the movie is cracked and no longer repairable.

With two comic relief leading a comedy what could possible go wrong? The answer would lie on the inability of both main roles to lead. The whole story and flow seemed to be jumbled up together and dragged out for the longest time.

Constantly being reminded of a similar dysfunctional duo in Due Date, the movie delivered nothing but staleness with maybe 1 or 2 completely forgettable lines that delivered just a handful of laughter. Everything else was shoved so hard in my face that i felt annoyed at it. 

The whole flow of the plot was so naive and skippy that nothing that happens around them actually means something important to the story. I found myself dragged by the ankle trying to sit through the never ending "in your face" humor that couldn't have a worse timing when it comes to punch line.

I am usually one that sucks in loads of senseless humor and laugh about it but Identity Thief delivered not that was worth mentioning, even the sexual context was far from funny.

I couldn't find a character to relate, I couldn't find a reason to like them and I couldn't even find a reason to symphatize, everything was just way too pushy. 

Rating: 0/5

"Unbefitting as a comedy, Identity Thief barely passes as a heatwarming story as well. I wouldn't recommend this at all. "
