Movie audiences apparently ignored mostly scathing reviews from critics and made “Identity Thief”, starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman, this weekend’s top-grossing movie.

The comedy took in a bigger-than-expected $36.5 million in its debut week, despite a blizzard on the East Coast and some less-than-stellar reviews.

Last week’s No. 1, the zombie romantic comedy (zom-rom-com) “Warm Bodies”, was a distant second place with $11.5 million, and ‘Side Effects”, directed by Steven Soderbergh,   debuted in third place with $10 million.

The top ten:

“Identity Thief,” $36.5 million
“Warm Bodies,” $11.5 million
“Side Effects,” $10 million
“Silver Linings Playbook,” $6.9 million
“Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters,” $57 million
“Mama,” $4.3 million
“Zero Dark Thirty,” $4 million
“Argo,” $2.5 million
“Django Unchained,” $2.2 million
“Top Gun,” $1.9 million
