Spy is hilarious!
“I’ve swallowed enough microchips and shit them back out again to make a computer!”
You know what you are in for when you have hilarious lines like that. Spy simply breathes on McCarthy’s excellent comic timing, Peter Serafinowicz’s horniness (boy that doesn’t stop at all), Statham’s goofiness (he can do anything!), Byrne’s snobby demenaour and Jude Law’s pizzazz. Oooh oooh and there is obnoxious gore too!
Spy is a fun ride if you wish to have some good laughs into a clichéd backdrop. You have often played serious things goofy in your heads. When your spoof mode is on and you make fun of everything dramatic. Spy does that! Period.
The plot is well put, but is hard to concentrate on when you put Melissa in the vanguard. She is a fluffy bag of awesomeness that just doesn’t stop tickling you. Complements her superbly is Miranda Hart who is brilliant as her bestie and boy she’s funny!
Like every other comedy, there are unforeseen cuts, unserious frames that lose gravity as soon as things start to become serious. The climax dies out pretty soon too. There is nothing that really thrills you. But the movie’s a hoot! Who’s complaining?
