A movie review by moviereviewsetc.com

Funny lady Melissa McCarthy did it again, this time saving the world as a CIA spy ala James Bond. Susan Cooper is an unexpected spy and unsung hero sitting in a desk (a desk-jockey) as a CIA analyst helping CIA agents in the field in their very dangerous missions. In order to prevent a global nuclear disaster, she volunteered to go undercover and infiltrate an arms dealer when her partner on the field she was helping and another top agent are compromised.
Spy is a typical spy movie with typical spy plot with a comedic twist and itis very fast and with a touching message. It is a hilarious spoof of James Bond movies with thrilling action scenes, clever, sharp and hilarious dialogues. They are ridiculous but quotable dialogues.
Melissa McCarthy had a meteoric rise as a comedian but several of her past movies have been missteps; she is stuck playing aggressive characters with a foul mouth which have become tiresome to watch. Spy is a welcome respite from this where she is outlandish and really funny. There is still some vulgarity in Spy but they are handles properly and cleverly done.
Spy is a solid comedy with marvelous performance by McCarthy with strong supporting cast where they all contributed to make a movie a solid piece. This is perfect Melissa McCarthy movie where her brand of comedy is showcased.
It stars Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, Jude Law as Bradley Fine, Jason Statham as Rick Ford, Miranda Hart (another funny lady where she almost stole some of the scenes) as Nancy, written and directed by Paul Feig.
