Identity Thief Review: Melissa McCarthy Steals the Show

The reviews are out on Identity Thief, and the critics aren't in love with it.  The problem is that it is following the formula of other classic road trip comedies like Midnight Run and Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.  But the big difference in this film is that the buddies are mixed gender, Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy.  This also happens to be the first starring role of the hilarious McCarthy.  Can her first opportunity to take centre stage be enough to make this a worthwhile film to see?  Find out in my film review for Collective Publishing.
