Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is a CIA agent, but she works in a basement following super spy Bradley Fine (Jude Law) following him and advising him on his situation in the field. But when Bradley is killed and all the agents are made, and the sale of a portable nuclear bomb is about to go down Susan offers to go out into the field as an undercover spy on a search and report mission. But she gets so involved she gets pulled into the whole secret agent thing in this side splitting comedy.

This was a wonderful experience. We stopped by at one of our favorite Regal theaters on this day when the theater is packed wall to wall with Jurassic World and Inside Out, and we went to see Spy. The theater has been completely remodeled with huge soft leather reclining seats that have foot rests. Kicked off my shoes and enjoyed the air conditioning and a really funny movie. I know Melissa McCarthy isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but in my opinion she’s getting better and better each and every film. She was wonderfully cast in this film and she carried the movie as well as anyone I could think of. Rarely do I laugh out loud in a theater. I try to chuckle to myself, but I was caught off guard by some very, very funny lines, and I must admit that I don’t know if the writers of this film or if they thought these throw away lines up while they were filming, but the way they were delivered made snort Diet Coke a couple times. This was a damn funny movie. They lampooned James Bond and every other Secret Agent film of the last 50 years, but with the unbelievably incompetent large lady trying to be a bad ass, it was quite different. Not since Mr. Bean have I seen such a bumbler, but she pulls it off and has the stuff to take care of herself and everyone else at the same time. Even Mr. Cent was really funny. We got to travel all over the world, ala Bond, and the scenery was really good, but when you go to see a comedy, you want to really laugh, and this film did the trick for me. This was the best comedic performance I’ve seen in a long time. This is R rated for some violence and some bad language, but it was truly funny and I highly recommend this one as a change of pace from all the Action and Adventure stories out there. There’s plenty of action, but the comedy is the best. See it.
