Glad to see that one nasty, completely out-of-line review didn't detract audiences from the GLORY that is Melissa McCarthy!

Hell, even the Snowpocalypse couldn't keep movie-goers away from her!

In fact, despite all of the odds, the actress' new comedy with Jason Bateman, Identity Thief, topped the weekend box by pulling in an estimated $36.6 million…the FIFTH biggest opening ever for a non-sequel R-rated comedy!

Sadly, however, it seems that Blizzard Storm Nemo DID take a bit of a toll on the flick's business, as Universal Studios projected that had it not been for all the snow, it could have surpassed the $40 million mark!

Hey! Whatever!

It still beat out last weekend's #1 film, Warm Bodies AND Channing Tatum's latest collaboration with Steven Soderbergh, Side Effects, which respectively pulled in $11.5 million AND $10 million!

Check out the rest of this weekend's box office top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Identity Thief, $36.6 million
Warm Bodies, $11.5 million
Side Effects, $10 million
Silver Linings Playbook, $6.9 million
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, $5.8 million
Mama, $4.3 million
Zero Dark Thirty, $4 million
Argo, $2.5 million
Django Unchained, $2.3 million
Bullet to the Head, $2 million

    Glad I saw Side Effects. Every person I know that saw Identity Thief said it was awful!
