Rosalind Russell doesn't quite manage to save Mrs. Pollifax-Spy.

Mrs. Pollifax -- Spyis a spy spoof that never works, a comedy-adventure with little comedy and less adventure.

Audience Reviews for Mrs. Pollifax-Spy

Has a lot of potential but just a mess of a movie. A perfect movie to be remade with a better script.

Starts well but loses focus and sort of peters out.
