So, what’d we think?
Mila Kunis (Audrey) and Kate McKinnon (Morgan) were the dream duo we didn’t know we needed in our life! Gather your girl gang and head to this movie ASAP because The Spy Who Dumped Me is a laugh-out loud comedy with two badass babes at the helm.
Highly entertaining thanks to some R-rated comedy gags and a number of brutal action sequences coordinated by the Bond team themselves, The Spy Who Dumped Me is one of our new fave female-led comedies. Relying heavily on the likability of Kunis and McKinnon and backed by a dynamic script, this film flips the action genre on its head to present a comedic take on a story about two ride-or-die BFFs kicking ass and taking names.
Starring as two hot mess besties, the ladies lives are thrown into chaos when they discover that Audrey’s ex (played by the sexy Justin Theroux) is a spy. Heading to Europe and diving head first into an explosive adventure, the girls encounter assassins, car chases, murder plots and Jamie Fraser (if you’re not watching Outlander, what are you even doing?).
We are 100% down for any ride involving McKinnon because this comedy Queen brings it every. single. time. The Spy Who Dumped Me perfectly showcases her quirky deadpan comedy and moments that fall flat are bought back to life by her quips. Kunis is, as always, loveable both on and off screen and holds her own next to McKinnon while bringing the film back down to earth with some sweet and relatable moments.
But, should you see it?
100% yes. The Spy Who Dumped Me is a fun action film that showcases all the weird and wonderful things that besties do for one another. Supported by a sharp script and featuring a talented cast of hilarious hotties, The Spy Who Dumped Me is an adrenaline pumping film that will have you laughing your ass off.
Grab your squad, have a few vinos and head to the movies to catch it while you can. In cinemas now.
