Excerpt: Not flawless, but it’s a very pleasant surprise. Not only are Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon a lot of fun together, but director/co-writer, Susanna Fogel, brings an intensity and extra thought to the action sequences here that are not often found in most action-comedies.
Excerpt: Director and co-writer Susanna Fogel aims to resurrect the familiar plot frame of laughs through near-death experiences and fish out of water naiveté and succeeds in doing exactly that for the film’s first half before the tidal wave regrettably loses momentum and direction resulting in a disappointing muddle.
Excerpt: ‘The Spy who Dumped Me’ blends elements of both R-rated female-led comedies and R-rated action comedies. Smart idea but, unfortunately, the jokes run early and the movie quickly turns into a generic spy comedy. Both Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon are a comedic duo worth hanging on to though.
