Mini Review - Identity Thief

Identity Thief (Out Apr 4) was savaged by critics in the U.S. but I didn't think it was that bad. It's the story of a man who has his identity stolen by a woman and must apprehend her so he can clear his name. Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy are a good fit in these roles and while the ending doesn't work, there are a few funny, surprising plot developments along the way. Grade: B-.
