Box Office Breakdown: ‘Identity Thief’ Steals Number One Spot

Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman in 'Identity Thief'

Rom-com zombie films are apparently no match for Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman.

The pair's Identity Thief generated enough laughs to help the film debut at number one at the box office this past weekend with $34.5 million, bumping Warm Bodies down to number two with $11.3 million. Steven Soderbergh's latest film Side Effects debuted with $9.3 million while Silver Linings Playbook followed with $6.4 million. Lastly, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters fell three spots to number five with $5.7 million.
