Identity Thief

This isn't your "fabulous work of cinema" experience, but we did laugh a lot. Sometimes after a series of heavy films, something mindless is just what you need.

Just one other thing to add. Why is Melissa McCarthy so very funny in the movies (this, Bridesmaids…) and yet falls a little flat in her current signature television show? Is it really all about the writers, or maybe there's something constricting about having to sustain a character over the long term. She's fun in this one, but I stopped watching the TV show shortly after I started.
