Critic Reviews for The Spy Who Dumped Me
This film doesn't quite come together like it should, it has all of the spy hijinks , and the action, and its a little over the top with the action in some scenes.
The Bourne Identity becomes somewhat essential late summer viewing for one reason and one reason alone: Kate McKinnon.
It gets so much right. A sequel, with Morgan in the driving seat, would be awesome.
The problem is that the script, by Fogel and David Iserson...offers zilch in the way of laughs.
McKinnon works well with her co-star Mila Kunis, although as so often in this kind of film, you suspect that they could get more laughs by doing some extended on-camera improvisation.
Audience Reviews for The Spy Who Dumped Me
Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon star in The Spy Who Dumped Me, a rather disappointing action-comedy. After discovering that her ex-boyfriend is a CIA agent Audrey and her best friend take it upon themselves to complete his mission to get a flash drive to a contact in Europe. Unfortunately, McKinnon is poison; going way over the top with her bawdy comedy. The tone is all over the place and the plot is incredibly formulaic and predictable. Still, some of the jokes work and there a few good action scenes. But The Spy Who Dumped Me just doesn't know what it wants to be and doesn't work as a comedy or an action film.
Not good, for sure, but way exceeded my expectations. Final rating:â~...â~...Â 1/2 - Not quite for me, but I definitely get the appeal.
This movie is a little (too) much, but the most irritating is that it was made by a woman - a woman who doesn't seem to realize how irritating it is to follow two stereotypically dumb American women who are very lucky not to get killed after five minutes (though we wish they did).
