Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) directs and writes this spy-comedy about Susan Cooper (the brilliant Melissa McCarthy) and her misadventures as a secret agent. The supporting cast features Rose Byrne, Jude Law and Jason Statham.

Cooper is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

This marks Feig's third teaming with McCarthy, after Bridesmaids and The Heat.

While the rest of the Freaks & Geeks wasted no time taking over Hollywood when the critically-adored TV show was cancelled after one season in 2001, it wasn't until the 2011 megahit Bridesmaids that F&G creator Paul Feig's directorial career really took off.

I Spy Laughter

Laugh out loud all the way McCarthy's funniest film yet with superb turns from Law and Byrne. Entertaining stuff!

Thoroughly enjoyed this.

There were moments in this film which had me laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. It certainly had my mother in stitches too. Overall this movie was a predictable, a little silly but was lots of fun. I enjoyed the cast which was full of A listers and as always Melissa McCarthy did a great job. Jude Law's American accent has you listening carefully...

Pushes all the buttons

Some nearly choke laughing moments. Action stuff if stupid but good. I'll easily watch this again.

Jason 'why-so-serious' Statham

Plenty of laugh out loud moments amongst the ridiculous stunt scenes. Worth it to see Jason Statham on form & Melissa McCarthys versatility.

Fun

For me, Melissa McCarthy's best comedy to date. Great cast, Statham is perfect, Rose Byrne's deadpan is terrific. Much, much better than I expected.

Fantastic!

I really enjoyed this film! A great line up of actors and actresses and a different take on a comedy that isn't "predictable". Would happily see it again!

The principal scene-stealer turns out to be Australia's Rose Byrne. She delivers a performance composed of a series of small comic gems produced with a minimum of fuss.

Laugh-stuffed and making excellent use of its marquee-grade supporting cast...

There's a sense of witnessing a woman empowered and it's a hoot to see McCarthy given the space she deserves to spread her comic wings.
