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

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - This starring vehicle for Melissa McCarthy is just as much a hard action film as an outrageous comedy, do while there is a lot of verbal and physical gags, there is also a lot of brutal violence that isn't always played for laughs--so parents or other audiences sensitive to brutal violence and constant language should be warned. Fans of the supporting cast will also have a lot to enjoy here, especially fans of Jason Statham, who gives a change of pace comic performance.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average The point (as is true of most mass-market comedies) is to make us laugh. It succeeds at that goal but not enough and certainly not with sufficient frequency to justify taking up 120 minutes of the viewer's time.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ... a decent if convoluted espionage plot—complete with tense action sequences, a surprising twist and 007-inspired opening credits—while spiked with a high percentage of gags that actually succeed.

NY Post Full Review
Average "Spy” gets a few things right and one major thing wrong: Melissa McCarthy would have made a perfect supervillain. Imagine what she would do to any dumbasses who get in her way: The lucky ones would get fed to the sharks.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 73 moviegoers:
TEENS: Two males loved it and one enjoyed "Spy" very much. Three of the four females loved it and the fourth one enjoyed it very much, rating it "above average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One male loved "Spy" and the other one rated it just "average," which is a bit low but not bad. Two females loved it and three enjoyed it very much. The last one rated it just "average."
ADULTS: These are great reviews from both the males and females. Sixty-percent of the males and 50% of the females loved "Spy." Approximately 30% of both the males and females rated it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Less than 10% of the males and just over 20% of the females rated it "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Equally important, no one disliked "Spy," so your probability of enjoying it are high.
