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

No.

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.

sucked- I laughed twice- does that qualify it as a comedy?

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.

A cute movie with some humor. Definitely worth watching but if you are looking for a block buster movie that will get a lot of awards this is not one.

A CIA agent who has only ever known desk work agrees to take on an undercover field position after a fellow agent is killed. At times laugh-out-loud funny, beware of crude language and some gross moments. This was described to me as a hilarious "spoof" spy movie, but I found it to be very different than "Get Smart" or "Naked Gun," with a more serious story, and less goofy humor than I had imagined.

Pretty funny but at time pretty dumb too! But all around a pretty good movie and entertaining!

Funny. Funny funny funny.
Saw it first a couple months ago, got it out again, and liked it even more the second time.
Action comedy. Silly, slick, well made, great acting, but most of all, funny.

Full chortle worthy. Tongue-in-cheek raunchiness.
Jason Statham steals the show with his over-the-top craziness.

This movie is awful! Although there were a lot of funny scenes, there were too many disgusting scenes and they used a loooooot of bad words. Jason Statham used the most bad words and Susan starts swearing more after meeting the British lady (I don't remember her name). I don't know what is so funny about a movie that's half nasty pictures and exchanging bad words. I give this movie 4.5/10 and it is inappropriate for kids. - @rahmamawlood of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

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.
