Who's On Top 2/22 - 2/24/13: Movies

It's time to checkout how well Hollywood did at the Box Office this week. In this weeks spotlight is a comedy about a crazy woman who steal Jason Batemen's identity and he must travel across country to bring her to justice.





Spotlight
Identity Thief

“Identity Thief,” a lazy comedy about a naughty woman and the uptight man she has her way with, has no business being funny. The story turns on a thief who sometimes goes by Diana (Melissa McCarthy), who wreaks havoc on a milquetoast, Sandy Patterson (Jason Bateman), by stealing his credit cards and more. The two become one of those belligerent odd couples who are forced on the road together chockablock with stereotypes, gun violence, visual clich├ęs and cruel comedy. Diana, a kewpie doll with a crazy smile and five-alarm blaze of hair, is the target of most of the jokes, but until the filmmakers put out her fire with a bucket of tears and sentimental slop, she’s also the movie’s bliss. — Manohla Dargis
