2013: Bonus: Identity Thief

Identity Thief

Genre: Comedy

Main Players: Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy

General Gist:  A Colorado guy's identity is stolen by a woman in Florida.  When he realizes the police aren't going to do anything about it he goes to find her himself. 

Tiff's Take: 
I had high hopes for this movie.  The previews looked hilarious and I knew it was a movie I could get Russ to go with me.  We both love Jason Bateman so that was a plus.  And I love almost any of Melissa McCarthy's roles.  So date night it was! 

I have to say we were both a little disappointed.  It was a little slow at times and a little longer then I think was necessary.  There were some scenes that seemed like they could have just been taken out.  Both actors were good and funny but definitely not either of their best movies.  That aside, there were some really funny parts.  Being Modern Family fans, we did enjoy the few scenes with Eric Stonestreet (Cam) though.  But overall, just not quite enough funny.
So, although I had a great date, it was another excuse for Russ to say, "I don't really like going to movies".  Oh well.  You win some, you lose some.  And I'll keep bugging him to go with me every time I can.
