I love McCarthy so overlooked some ridiculousness of this movie in general. It had funny pieces and all the things that should have made it work. Had heart too, but somehow stil missed the mark for me.

Identity theft seems like it would be a good theme for a comedy film; in this case it wasn't. Rather than parlaying a variety of clever riffs on the main theme, the film makers resorted to well-worn clichéd gimmicks. Over the top sophomoric and unnecessarily salacious humor abounds. While Mr. Bateman turns in a professional acting performance, Ms. McCarty and the rest of the actors, not so much. This is a good one to miss. Not recommended.

This movie strikes a balance between outrageous humourous situations, and authentic drama with a sensitivity to human tragedy. Worth watching.

I like Melissa McCarthy and Justin Batemen but was the worst movie I've seen in a long time. Thank Goodness I didn't pay money for this.

Nothing works in this unfunny comedy.Plotline and many scenes are not believable and just plain dull. Amanda Peet and John Cho are wasted in this one, saddled with uninteresting roles.

Horrible. Only watched the first 25 minutes or so. A plot about a confusing situation that can easily be solved with a simple conversation being dragged out into 2 hour movie of non-clever interactions. Laaaaaaame!

I watched the first 40 minutes and saw no point in continuing this horrible film. What a shame. Melissa McCarthy is so much better on her TV show and on SNL.

It's hard to feel any empathy for Jason Bateman's character. How many of us would give personal credit info to a complete stranger on a telephone?

Very dull movie. McCarthy was nothing at all like the character in Bridesmaids. This movie was ever so painful to watch.
