Silly, silly movie but soooo much fun. If you need a laugh, it is a must watch.

The plot was absurd, but - honestly - I was expecting it to be (that's why I picked it up). What I found hard to cope with was the incessant dropping of the F-bomb. It was so pervasive that the only way to judge whether a character was truly upset was by counting the F's per second. It would have been funnier if the writer's has been more creative.

What a waste time.

If you've seen the Trailer then I'm afraid that you've been misinformed.
Melissa McCarthy is not the bumbling desk-jockey you expect walking in.
And, this movie isn't half as bad as you might expect.
Granted: It's your standard Hollywood action-comedy, BUT, there are enough twists, turns, action, and laughs to keep it interesting.
Was this a clever movie?
No. Not by any means.
But, it's fun. And, I enjoyed it.

Quite possibly the worst movie ever made. Vulgar, boring. It's not clever, it's not amusing, it's not remotely funny. Nor is the script intelligent. Melissa McCarthy can't act. Miranda Hart is a marvelous actress, but is completely wasted in this script. It's hard to believe she'd lower herself to be in this complete waste of film and time.

Pretty obvious Bond movie spoof. Some parts mildly humorous but not as well written as it might have been. About 2/3 of the way through the movie the writer seems to have thought that putting the "f"-word in every single sentence the actors said, preferably multiple times, would make up for something. It just got repetitious and seemed a desperate attempt to mask not being able to write truly witty dialog for those scenes. It was okay watching it once but I am not going to be buying my own copy.

I expected this movie to be another B rate comedy with an endless barrage of only somewhat funny jokes. It took over a year of my friends recommending it to me before I finally watched it. When I finally did, I regretted waiting so long. This movie is full of laughs that will have you pressing pause to catch a breath from laughing. Melissa McCarthy is hilarious in her role. As are the supporting characters Jude Law and Jason Statham (The 'poison factory' banter scene had everyone in the room I was watching it with laughing in tears). It's also the only American movie I've seen with UK comedienne Miranda Hart of the British comedy series 'Miranda' in (if you enjoy sitcoms and can find it, it's worth checking out). Spy is definitely worth watching if you love comedies and haven't seen it yet.

Hilarious! A must watch if you're into spoofs and idiotic moments, made me laugh the whole time. Thank god Amy Schumer didn't get into this film, and for the people that are saying the scenes in some are pretty disgusting- It's a RATED R movie for a reason. 17+ UP not 5+, There's some brief nudity of the genitals and of course there's a bit of blood but nothing else really. If you're this soft about blood then look at Hostel before getting sensitive about this film. Anyways, this is a MUST-WATCH if you like Comedy and James Bond because when it mixes up together you get this awesome movie!

Mostly terrible and lame. It had a few funny moments/lines but they were rare and almost exclusively limited to when McCarthy was flipping out a la her Sean Spicer rages. THOSE were funny.

You would too swear if everywoman goes into a stressful real world spy mission.
Great spoof on spy film that's not dumbed down.
Sure Jason was a loose cannon typecast role, but it was different enough to be funny.
Disguises heroine wore? Classic schadenfreude.
Why not on a female superior playing the straight man?
Film ending? Oh, boy.

Aldo: How you like my English accent, huh? I learn it from the Downton Abbey. No, I'm only joking. Or am I?

Ford: Look, you did a good job. Probably just beginner's luck, though.

Ford: Here's what we do...I go into the Face/Off machine, get a whole new face. I turn up, they never know it's me. ... And I know there's a freaking Face/Off machine. You're just keeping it secret from me.

Cooper: Does Crocker even know you're here?
Ford: I don't need anyone's permission to save the country...and avenge my dear friend Bradley Fine's death.
Cooper: You didn't even like him. You used to call him "Beverly Whine"! You had him as Secret Santa and you gave him tampons!
Ford: It's called the rivalry of men. You wouldn't understand. Unless you've got a dong up underneath that skirt.

Cooper: Uh, did you forget? I am undercover because you are not supposed to be here!
Ford: Well I make a habit out of doing things that people say I can't do: Walk through fire, waterski blindfolded, take up piano at a late age.

Rayna: People are trying to kill me and all that's left of my security guard is you two and you look like someone's demented aunts on vacation! You! Don't you have someone in your team other than this asthmatic big bird?
Nancy (Tall nurse from Call The Midwife:) I'm very non-physically resourceful. I read a lot of intelligence, I read a lot of poems, and I've read all of the 'Hunger Games'.

Welcome to Lake Balaton. I found this staircase and made them build a house around it.

Nutty dialogue from nutty agent Ford:
Ford: You really think you're ready for the field? I once used defibrillators on myself. I put shards of glass in my freakin' eye. I've jumped from a high-rise building using only a raincoat as a parachute and broke both legs upon landing; I still had to pretend I was in a freaking Cirque du Soleil show! I've swallowed enough microchips and shit them back out again to make a computer. This arm has been ripped off completely and re-attached with this freakin' arm.
Cooper: I don't know that that's possible... I mean medically...
Ford: During the threat of an assassination attempt, I appeared convincingly in front of congress as Barack Obama.
Cooper: In black-face? That's not appropriate.
Ford: I watched the woman I love get tossed from a plane and hit by another plane mid-air. I drove a car off a freeway on top of a train while it was on fire. Not the car, *I* was on fire.

Coarse Language: For some reason all McCarthy's movies are low on dialogue and long on cursing.
