I would have loved to have been in the room when they came up with the idea of The Spy Who Dumped Me. Did they throw up a few spy ideas on a bulletin board and then throw darts at them to create this story. Overall, this film lacked the entertainment and smarts to be a real spy movie. The action wasn’t there, the comedy was a disaster, and the story itself lacked all the enthusiasm of other spy comedies.
Once upon a time, I created a list of actresses I didn’t like and Melissa McCarthy came in at number one. Kate McKinnon was never on that list, but after watching her in this film, she is like my 1B now. Her antics may work on brief skits on Saturday Night Live, but yelling and screaming nonsense for two hours can get under your nerves. People may love her and think she’s the bomb, I just can’t stand that type of acting or personality because it is too much. I couldn’t tell if Mila Kunis’ reactions to her crazy antics were acting or real life. These two may be best friends in real life or bitter enemies. Personally, if I had to suffer through her scenes much like I do her movies, I would probably quit the business.
My review seems harsh, although I am just speaking my mind about how bad this movie and the performances were. I was warned beforehand what to expect here, yet we still went. I always love to debate movies between friends or other people in the world. I didn’t think The Spy Who Dumped Me to be that bad, but it’s along the same lines as Slender Man, The Bye Bye Man as worse of the year. To be completely honest, I can’t wait to see if they do an Honest Trailer and Everything Wrong With video on YouTube so the massacre of reviews can continue. My final advice would be to skip this movie at all costs. 1/10
