    Hollywood Sexist of the Day: Rex Reed

    Rex Reed’s review of Identity Thief in The New York Observer is a scathing takedown of the film, which is fine. He's entitled to his opinion.  He's a critic.  What’s not fine, and what he's not entitled to, is his continual harping star's Melissa McCarthy and he...
