      It's been so long since I've successfully enjoyed a comedy. There's been a few I liked, but most of them just aren't funny. This film isn't what most would call "sophisticated", but it was well made. The story that holds it all together is sturdy enough to hold the film together and not get in the way of the silliness. Perhaps if this is were the first spy movie ever made, some people would have had the same reaction to it that the Guardians of Peace had to THE INTERVIEW (2014). But since this is basically a by-the-books spy movie, it's nothing new to most people, except it's thoroughly funny. It's AUSTIN POWERS for the post 9/11 crowd. The excerpt on the cover that states "Funniest movie of 2015" may be spot on. The only bad thing about that is when you reach the top, there's nowhere to go but down...hopefully 2016 will rise to the challenge...Also: this film does have its "vulgar" moments, but they're not included b/c "vulgar = funny". Obviously if you're a prude, much of the film can be summed up by reading the explanation of the R rating, since any prude will prolly be too shocked by the various R rated sights&sounds to enjoy the rest of the film. However, if inclusions of violence and nudity in a motion picture don't get your nerves rattled, this can probably be thoroughly enjoyed.

      Spy is a movie featuring Melissa McCarthy as CIA analyst Susan Cooper. She has a strong working relationship with Bradley Fine (Jude Law) and a close friendship with fellow CIA colleague Nancy B Artingstall (Miranda Hart). Susan Cooper ends up volunteering herself to be directly in the field due to her feeling to go after Raya Boyanov (Rose Byrne) after what she sees involving her coworker Bradley Fine. Elaine Crocker (Allison Janney) decides to give Susan Cooper a chance to be in the field with greater CIA responsibilities despite protests from fellow CIA agent Rick Ford (Jason Statham). Cooper’s new assignments have her directly dealing with both Raya Boyanov and charismatic but dangerous Sergio De Luca (Bobby Canavale). Meanwhile Susan Cooper is assigned various aliases to protect her identity and safeguard her cover and along the way meets an admirer who calls himself Aldo (Peter Serafinowicz). Celebrity 50 Cent makes an appearance in Spy and the movie lists some of the following locations/settings: Varna Bulgaria, Langley Virginia, Rome Italy, and Budapest Hungary. It Is also listed toward the end of the Spy movie credits that the making and authorized distribution of this film supported over 13,000 jobs and involved hundreds of thousands of work hours.

      Hilarious Action-Comedy

      Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy once again team-up for a hilarious spy/thriller comedy whose main focus is lampooning James Bond. McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who priority it is to keep her CIA operative, Bradly Fine (Jude Law), alive while he’s out in the field. When an arms dealer, Rayna Boyanov (Rose Byrne), gets the upper-hand on Fine, it’s clear she has intel on the CIA. The only option is to send Cooper into the field, something she’s always wanted and feared at the same time. McCarthy gives her usual bumbling, but charming performance that’s become her signature. Her character doesn’t quite grasp the nature of things, yet she’s never stupid, causing you to hate her. She’s very likable especially given the situation she’s in. We do get some other great performances from Byrne as the central villain and Jason Statham in the role of an over-confident CIA agent that nearly steals the show from McCarthy. The blu-ray comes packed with special features, namely of which is the unrated, extended cut that runs nearly 10-minutes longer than the R-rated theatrical cut. From there we get several deleted and alternate scenes, gag reels, making-of’s and a commentary. Overall, not a bad little package for a very funny film.

      Funny comedy action spy movie

      Posted

      Am amazed on how Melissa M can deliver the way the over the top lines without laughing. A funny scene is when they go back and forth after she make a comment that goes over the line. The main plot is that she is support staff to a super agent, who gets killed on a mission. The identities of all the other spies get compromised, resulting in her first field assignment. Jason Statham’s character is really goofy, and his character’s bantering with Melissa is funny. A clever blend of action and comedy. The movie also makes fun of European techno music too. However, due to the language involved, children should not watch it.

      Most of the Melissa McCarthy movies after Bridesmaids have been rather disappointing. I did not even crack a smile watching Tammy so I had given up hope. I cannot tell you how happy I was when I first roared with laughter watching Spy. Even better, the laughs just kept coming. I think the reason this movie worked so well was the casting. My favorite pairing was McCarthy with Miranda Hart. They were hysterical together. I did not even look to see who the director was until the credits rolled. Once I saw it was Paul Feig, it all made sense. With the exception of one his comedies, I have enjoyed everything he has done.

      Spy is a great comedy which spoofs so many other things but still seems original in some way. Without too many spoilers Melissa McCarthy stars as Susan Cooper, a desk bound CIA analyst and handler and after the other agents are compromised including her crush played by Jude Law, she volunteers to go out into the field and stop the villain played by Rose Bryne from selling a Nuclear Weapon. On the way she is confronted by Rick Ford (JASON STATHAM) who says he's a "Real Spy" and that he wants to stop the sale himself. I'm a huge Statham fan and it was hilarious to see him drop so many F bombs and basically play a character that is a spoof of all his others and keeps screwing up, I just wish he had more screen time and all but he was my fav in this. Pretty funny comedy with some good action too and good performances from the cast.

      Easily the FUNNIEST movie of 2015, comedy powerhouse Melissa McCarthy scores yet again with the action comedy Spy. After a list of the secret identities of undercover spies goes up fo sale, the government is worries their undercover operatives will be snuffed out. Enter Susan Cooper, an analysis who agrees to go into the field to track and report. Clearly more happens then just tracking and reporting and all viewees can do is sit back, relax and LOL at the high jinks that Cooper finds herself in. Holding their own and OH SO FUNNY opposite McCarthy are action superstar Jason Statham and Damages star Rose Bryne. Both step outside their comfort zone and give HILARIOUS comedic perfomances, Statham as the bubbling fool and Bryne as a vicious femme fatale. It's a MUST have for any McCarthy fan or fan of comedies.

      My wife wanted the movie; I didn't really care but purchased to please her. I've now played it twice in the first month, and then put it on again as background to get the kids' attention away from my spouse (really, me!). The story line is obviously too far-fetched, but the appearance of some really great actors/actresses totally fills in what would otherwise be just too dumb stupid instead of really, really dumb-funny hilarity. The one super action actor very obviously REALLY enjoyed making this movie -- if it wasn't for him, the movie would otherwise get old quick//the leopard pants stuck-up is a crack-up, too. SO, this movie generates some awesome laughs due to a great selection of actors/actresses not dependent upon a one-person TV showoff.
