Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Has the kind of cast that makes audiences ask, "How bad could it be?" before proceeding to answer that very question.

- Alonso Duralde, TheWrap, Thursday, February 7, 2013

Rotten: Considering that it starts out with two distinctive and likable stars and a reasonably promising premise, "Identity Thief" reaches impressive heights of laziness and idiocy.

- Andrew O'Hehir,, Friday, February 8, 2013

Rotten: What a bummer.

- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Thursday, February 7, 2013

McCarthy shows some solid range in her role, but this comedy ultimately fails in it's ability to deliver memorable jokes and a fully engaging plot once the credits roll.

A great concept that suffers from relying too much on running gags and having some unfortunate sub-plots that don't quite add up at the end.
