The Spy Who Dumped me centres around Audrey (Mila Kunis) and her madcap friend Morgan (Kate Mckinnon). Audrey’s recently been dumped by her boyfriend Drew (Justin Theroux) who, unbeknown to her, is a spy and has left an important item in her flat for safe-keeping.
Drew makes a surprise return to Audrey’s flat which kicks off an amusing set of events that sees her and Morgan travelling to Europe to fulfill Drew’s mission.
I wasn’t expecting a lot from this film – I had a feeling that all of the best bits had been shown in the trailer and the rest of the film would just be filler around these scenes – how wrong I was!
Kunis shows great comic timing as the downtrodden Audrey who slowly realises that she doesn’t need a man and can cope on her own and Mckinnon is hilarious as the weirdly wacky Morgan.
For a comedy, the film is quite violent so should be avoided by those with a sensitive disposition but the action sequences are well handled and provide laughs in all the right places.
I highly recommend this film – it’s worth the price of admission just to see the trapeze fight scene!
