“Identity Thief”, the new comedy starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, is a clumsy comedy that gets trapped up in far-fetched plot, and forgets to be funny for long stretches at a time.
Ok, boys and girls. The Holiday Season is over… and the Spring Season, full of mini Blockbusters, is still months away.
Between now and then lies Hollywood’s dumping ground. The Hollywood fields lie fallow in the winter, bearing little quality product. It’s the two months of the year we need to “Get through”. While January typically offers some limited releases from the prior year going wide, there’s typically little else to get excited over.
Will this year be different? Are there any movies to get excited about these next two months? Let’s take a look at the release slate and see what we’ve got!

Making its Home Box Office debut this weekend was last year’s smash comedy, “Bridesmaids”.
Starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Melissa McCarthy, “Bridesmaids” was a runaway box office success, grossing $288 million worldwide. It is currently the top grossing film produced by Judd Apatow, and that’s some impressive company. The movie was also critically well received. It got nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress – Melissa McCarthy), and made a number of year end top ten lists, including the American Film Institute’s, Entertainment Weekly’s, and The (title pending) Movie Podcast’s (Tanski’s #2).
The question then becomes – is it all of that?

Let the acting awards commence! Up first, the supporting actresses! Those ladies who did a great job, even though they didn’t have the spotlight all of the time. They have a scene here, a scene there. But when it’s said and done, you can’t deny they’re a big reason why you liked the movie so much.
