"Identity Thief" opens at Number 1, and 35 mil., bigger than "Bridesmaids."

Embrace your new hag, 'mos.

I think she's a hoot!

by Anonymousreply 202/08/2013

I get a real "nasty bitch in private" vibe from her.

by Anonymousreply 302/08/2013

According to Rotten Tomatoes, her movie only got a 26%

That Rex Reed review was damn vicious.

It's not possible. It would be like trying to hug a sequoia tree.

She plays the same exact loudmouthed fat girl character in every movie she plays and I wouldn't want it any other way.

I love her in everything she is in, except for that awful CBS sitcom.

by Anonymousreply 702/08/2013

Yes r3, definitely

by Anonymousreply 802/08/2013

By all accounts, she's extremely sweet and humble.

Rex Reed must be rolling in his grave.

by Anonymousreply 902/09/2013

Rex Reed isn't dead.

by Anonymousreply 1002/09/2013

Actually R3, I worked with her years ago when we were both lowly PAs on a kids' show.

She was very sweet, funny and genuinely a good person.

by Anonymousreply 1102/09/2013

I'm more excited for Jason Bateman. He needed the hit.

I don't pay much attention to Jenny's cousin. Although, she was hilarious in Bridesmaids.

by Anonymousreply 1202/09/2013

The gays love her and all of us that haven't seen Identity Thief will be going this weekend. And those of us that have will be seeing it a 2nd and 3rd time!!!

by Anonymousreply 1302/09/2013

Her movie with Sandra Bullock being released this summer is going to be HUGE!

by Anonymousreply 1402/09/2013

So, I decided I'd watch the trailer. I admit, it looks funny. I'd watch it.

by Anonymousreply 1502/09/2013

R3 - that's a really nasty thing to say. She's worked really hard for over 15 years to get where she is.

Does anyone remember her in the credits of Charlie's Angels? Hilarious and succint.

I would love to see her and her cousin Jenny in a comedy - they're both so good.

by Anonymousreply 1602/09/2013

Wasn't there a Blind Item recently about her husband cheating on her with Cousin Jenny? Granted it was CDAN, so there's a 97.6% cahance it was entirely fabricated.

by Anonymousreply 1702/09/2013

Wow, everyone is talking about that Rex Reed piece.

His career is over. He'll be fired within the week.

by Anonymousreply 1802/09/2013

When Rex Reed reviewed Lee Radziwill in the TV production of Laura, he said she killed the character of Laura so completely that he would forever think of her as "Lee Harvey Radziwill."

It's what he does. He will survive.

I thought the trailer of "Identity Thief" was obnoxious.

by Anonymousreply 2002/09/2013

Don't Melissa give Jason Bateman a black eye?

by Anonymousreply 2102/09/2013

She's actually quite attractive.

by Anonymousreply 2202/09/2013

She's pretty for a fat girl.

How does Lauren Graham feel her former second banana is an Emmy winner, Oscar nominee, star of her own sitcom and now has the number one movie in the country?

by Anonymousreply 2402/09/2013

I like her. She's a genuinely gifted comedic actress. How many other "stars" can you say that about?

by Anonymousreply 2502/09/2013

I'll watch Identity Thief eventually. I find her funny.

by Anonymousreply 2602/09/2013

[R24], I was thinking the same thing. Something tells me MM and LG aren't exactly pals. I sure did enjoy them together on Gilmore Girls.

by Anonymousreply 2702/09/2013

I love her and she works hard in Identity Thief to wring some laughs but god it's a terrible lazy stupid movie.

by Anonymousreply 2802/09/2013

She's awful. The huge mounds of fat don't help either.

by Anonymousreply 2902/09/2013

I'm all for fat actors, especially the comedic kind. But I feel she's one-note. And in her latest movie they let her ad lib so much she sounds deranged.

She's just this year's Fat Poster Girl, for 200 lb. fraus who "have found their natural weight".

by Anonymousreply 3002/09/2013

Identity Thief looks ok, but I'll wait for Netflix.

by Anonymousreply 3102/09/2013

It's kind of ridiculous that we are even talking about her weight. We should be talking about her as an actress. I certainly wouldn't like it if people kept bringing up my sexual identity who I was sleeping with.

by Anonymousreply 3202/09/2013

She's funny and different.

I believe she deserved the Supporting Actress Oscar that year. I sure do. She created a real character who got some of the biggest laughs in that movie.

She is very, very talented and if I ever do see this movie (and I just might) it will be 100% because of her.

The one downside of the success of this movie is that it's going to convince some studio head somewhere that the one-note no talent Jason Bateman is a star. God does he play the same bland Everyman in EVERY SINGLE MOVIE he does.

by Anonymousreply 3302/09/2013

Identity Thief may very well beat Die Hard 5 in its second weekend which is unbelievable. It's already made close to 80 mil. in only two weeks.

Not only is Melissa McCarthy a star, she's a bigger star than Bruce Willis as his most famous character. Prepare to see her everywhere.

Who the hell cares what that bag of bones may think? The McCarthy bitch has the career I was supposed to have, GODDAMIT!

by Anonymousreply 3602/18/2013

Add me to those who are happy for Jason Bateman, probably the best and hottest comedic straight man on films these days. Thank God Ben Stiller is over.

Are they really cousins? I know Melissa was in one episode of Jenny's failed sitcom called, what else, JENNY.

by Anonymousreply 3802/18/2013

r36/Roseanne still bitter that minor character Goerge Clooney went on to be on a hit show, a lucrative film career, an Oscar and several nominations. And he may get another for producing ARGO, which coincidentally also stars John Goodman. See, Rosie, you treat people like shit and they refuse to cast you in prominent projects.

SATURDAY 12:45 PM UPDATE: Seriously, why do studios open movies on Oscar weekend? With attention otherwise diverted, it’s hard for me or Hollywood to care about these two newcomers Friday. Audiences didn’t either. That’s why the Melissa McCarthy/Jason Bateman starrer Identity Thief will be #1 with $4.0M entering its third weekend and at least $13M through Sunday. One rival studio thinks the frenemies comedy did more Friday and can exceed $20M this weekend. Let’s see. After that there’s a lot of confusion over numbers and placements. Full analysis later today.

by Anonymousreply 4002/23/2013

Identity Thief is #1 in its third weekend.

Yep, she's a star.

by Anonymousreply 4102/23/2013

R35, Thanks for the link to Hollywood Deadline. I will start reading this site regularly.

When is it determined that McCarthy is a star, rather than the fact that the flick was very heavily promoted, like as a trailer before movies for months and months, and that people are desperate to laugh at anything? Most said it wasn't very good but that they wanted to see a comedy rather than an action flick.

by Anonymousreply 4202/23/2013

Love her.

Wasn't Ms Swan supposed to do McCarthy's part in Gilmore Girls but Fox refused?

by Anonymousreply 4506/24/2013

Why would anyone put her in peg-legged pants??

Otherwise, she looks pretty good and so does the rest of the outfit.

by Anonymousreply 4606/24/2013

If it fit, I should add.

by Anonymousreply 4706/24/2013

R45, I don't know but that actress is in the Gilmore Girls first episode and several others.

by Anonymousreply 4806/24/2013

Fox wouldn't let her be a regular but did agree to recurring...

by Anonymousreply 4906/24/2013

Just watched Identity Thief on HBO. Terrible movie but Jason Bateman is quite fuckable. That's the only thing that kept me watching.

by Anonymousreply 5001/05/2014

Can't wait for Tammy. Heard Melissa was homophobic though...

by Anonymousreply 5102/26/2014

Can't wait for her upcoming feature film "Tammy".
