Storyline Heading
Audrey and Morgan, two thirty-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, are thrust unexpectedly into an international conspiracy when Audrey's ex-boyfriend shows up at their apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. Surprising even themselves, the duo jump into action, on the run throughout Europe from assassins and a suspicious-but-charming British agent, as they hatch a plan to save the world.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - This violent and often raunchy action comedy is a big vehicle for stars Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon, but the female leads don't necessarily mean only female appeal, for men should also enjoy. Other familar faces such as Justin Theroux, Gillian Anderson, Jane Curtin, and Paul Reiser only have smaller supporting roles. Constant language and some alcohol in addition to the violent action make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The comedy isn't (entirely) the problem...It's the extreme violence, which serves as a jarring contrast to the goofy antics. The killings are actually more over the top than the ones you might see in a straight-up spy movie...

NY Post Full Review
Good ...the rare secret-agent spoof that doesn't double-O-suck. You can thank the awesome fights for that. During the first five minutes of the film, the action was so serious I thought I'd wandered into the wrong theater.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Below Average Sadly, this comedy gets tied up in the knots of an espionage plot that's loaded with D.O.A. jokes galore. ...spends way too much time on car chases, shootouts, knife fights and R-rated violence that doesn't square with the film's comic agenda.

Rex Reed Full Review
Good ...becomes somewhat essential late summer viewing for one reason and one reason alone: Kate McKinnon. ...the Emmy-Award winning actress is so ceaselessly inventive, so honest and outrageous, that literally every moment she is on screen is a cause for surprise and enchantment.

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 54 moviegoers:
TEENS: One male loved it and one didn't care for it. The ladies enjoyed it very much with five of the six rating it "excellent."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Half the males either loved it or enjoyed it very much. The remaining half (3) felt it was just an "average" movie. Again, the ladies enjoyed it more than the guys. Two loved it, two enjoyed it very much and only one rated it as low as "average," (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
ADULTS: These reviews are decent but not great. About 30% of both the males and females loved "The Spy Who Dumped Me." Another 30% enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, the remaining 40% rated it "average," or lower.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon), two best friends embark on an action-packed international adventure after they discover that Drew (Justin Theroux), who recently dumped Audrey via text, is actually a spy.

Armed only with their wits, Audrey and Morgan race through several European capitals, hunted by a host of top-secret operatives who want to help them or kill them -- or both. These include taciturn British agent Sebastian Henshaw (Sam Heughan), pretentious jerk Topher Duffer (Hasan Minhaj), calculating spy boss Wendy (Gillian Anderson), and coldblooded teenage assassin Nadedja (Ivanna Sakhno).

As they learn to navigate the high-octane world of gun battles, car chases and daring escapes, the two best buds quickly learn that they can trust no one, except each other.
