Currently riding high at the Us box office, road trip comedy Identity Thief is far from a great night at the pictures, Simon writes...
The beauty of John Hughes' Planes Trains And Automobiles is that, in the depths of everything he puts Steve Martin's character through, you still care and feel sympathy for John Candy's shower ring salesman. That's really hard to do: by most measures, he should be the kind of character who, given how unreasonable he is at his worst, you simply want to see the back of. But you don't, and when Martin invites him into his home at the end of the film, you can, at the very least, understand why.
Identity Thief, at the time of writing the biggest grossing comedy of 2013 in the Us, never gets anywhere close. Not once. It puts at its heart »
