DVD Review: Spy
You didn't see that coming?
Susan (Melissa McCarthy) works for the CIA, but she's the one behind the desk. Telling her field agent partner, Bradley (Jude Law) what to do. After something major happens, she finds herself in the field trying to get close to a crime bosses' daughter, Rayna (Rose Byrne) while also dealing with another disgruntled CIA agent, Rick. (Jason Statham)
I'm not a Melissa McCarthy fan. I didn't like Bridesmaids, I think her Oscar nomination is still bullshit, so when I saw previews for this, I had no interest. It was only after the blogging community gave it rave(ish) reviews that I decided to check it out on DVD. I'm glad I did.
This is the least annoying I've ever seen McCarthy. She does have great chemistry with Byrne, and whether she's yelling at her or fighting with some Kardashian wannabe, McCarthy works here. Jason Statham is the star though. Every word that comes out of this guy's mouth is hysterical.
It's very over the top and fun and flows at a very fluid pace. You can tell the cast had a good time with this.
