Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Identity Thief is full of (comic) mayhem, with cars crunching into each other (sometimes on purpose) and characters shooting at each other, stealing from each other, and generally creating as much chaos as possible. The premise centers around a thief (Melissa McCarthy) who steals someone else's identity; he (Jason Bateman) then proceeds to try to get her to clear his name. In the process, they get embroiled in tons of hijinks, some of which are sexual in nature (though not with each other); there's simulated sex, but no nudity. Expect lots of innuendoes and plenty of swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t"), plus some racist jokes, drinking (wine, hard liquor), and product placement.

Sexual Content

A woman flirts with a man at a bar, gets drunk with him, and then sleeps with him. Viewers don't see them in naked, but we do see their faces during the lengthy and over-the-top sequence. Lots of double entendres and some lewd/aggressive come-ons.

Violence

Cars crash into each other; characters shoot point blank at each other; a woman punches men in the throat time and again. Also wrestling, hair pulling, etc. And characters create as much mayhem as possible to get out of any pickle they're in. Most of this is done with a light underlying tone, however, as the movie is a comedy.

Language

Frequent use of a wide variety of swearing, including "f--k," "s--t," "d--k," "c--k," "bitch," "goddammit," "a--hole," "screw," "ass," "hell," "crap," "damn," "oh my God," and more.

Social Behavior

Forgiveness, empathy, and trust go a long way toward smoothing rough edges and bridging huge differences. And it's important to be confident and stand up for yourself. Also: Love and family mean more than stuff. That said, sometimes characters resort to violence to get out of a problematic situation.

Consumerism

Lots of name-dropping and label-flashing, including Adidas, Quicken, Fiat, Mini Cooper, Century 21, L'Occitane, Dodge, Lifelock, Hemlock, and more. One character drowns her sorrows with endless shopping.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

People get drunk on tequila shots at bars. Characters act out/are belligerent when they're drunk. A hook-up takes place between two drunk characters. Also wine-drinking at restaurants and other functions, mention of Xanax use, and the like.
