More Info:
  • John DeFore

    Laugh-stuffed and making excellent use of its marquee-grade supporting cast, it promises to be a home run in its early summer release.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    An uproarious blast of globe-trotting action-comedy delirium that doesn’t spoof the espionage-thriller genre so much as drop a series of banana peels in its path.

    Variety Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    There is a giddy sense of glee that runs through most of this movie, making it feel like Feig can barely contain himself with all of the things he wants to do and show you in the movie.

  • Alonso Duralde

    Spy would be a standout if only for its ability to keep me laughing while also keeping me from figuring out who was really double-crossing whom. Add to that this extraordinary ensemble of actors (who knew Jason Statham could be this funny?), and you’ve got another memorable offering from McCarthy and Feig.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Alex Needham

    Spy confirms Feig’s and McCarthy’s instinct for both the zeitgeist and the funnybone, and is sure to ramp up anticipation for Ghostbusters even higher – as well as being a delight in its own right.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    This is a generous, consistently pleasurable comedy.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    Feig's commitment to the genre, and some truly wonderful set pieces, make Spy as lovable as its main character.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    It's a comedy of exasperation where, for once, the joke isn't on McCarthy, but on everyone who can't see her skills.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    As McCarthy and Byrne carry on a filthy volley of insults (with what is surely secret sisterly glee), Feig keeps his Spy machinery cranking so smoothly that nothing said or done feels as outrageous as, in fact, it is. The truth serum Spy drops into our fizzy drinks makes us feel so good that we don’t even realize we’ve been schooled.

    Time Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Spy lampoons sexism without abandoning sex — a tough tone for a comedy to strike but one that Feig and McCarthy manage to accomplish with both a sense of justice and a sense of humor.

    Slate Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    It is, in short, a generous, smart, sexy comedy, surrounding this generous, smart, sexy star. About time.

    NPR Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Feig, who wrote the Spy screenplay, encouraging his actors to improvise along the way, has his own stealth mission. For all the over-the-top comedy, zigzagging chases, and choreographed fight scenes, Spy is very much a tale of female empowerment.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    All the actors come up aces. And let's bottle the delicious byplay between McCarthy and Byrne, whose comic timing is bitchy perfection.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    McCarthy’s mind just seems to race in a faster gear than her costars, allowing her to blast off arias of profane put-downs with such speed and demented originality that her mouth practically shoots sparks. As a physical comedian, she possesses the greatest gift of all: She’s totally unafraid of looking stupid.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    Spy may not be a great movie, but it is great fun. And at times it will have you wondering if there's that much of a difference.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Spy is hilarious and heartfelt, a terrific movie.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Genevieve Koski

    Spy never lets its genre conceit get in the way of its comedy, which delivers more laugh-out-loud moments than any other mainstream comedy so far this year.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The busy, silly script allows Ms. McCarthy to be her own best sidekick, in effect an entire sketch-comedy troupe unto herself.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Emma Dibdin

    A whip-smart blend of savvy parody, elegant slapstick and zinger-packed dialogue makes for the year’s most rewarding character comedy so far, and McCarthy’s best showcase to date.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    The supporting cast is a kick. Law gets to send up the Bond role, something he could very well have played in his younger days; Allison Janney fills her boots as the angry head of the agency and Statham, frankly, should only ever play this role for the rest of his life.

    Empire Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Nobody is better than McCarthy at over-the-top comic hostility.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    As a distaff version of James Bond in Spy, Hollywood’s reigning empress of ha-ha Melissa McCarthy has a license to not just kill the audience with laughter but also to slay us with her acting skills. Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    Feig blends a keen sense of physical comedy and exquisite timing with all the requisite spy-flick tropes, from the trippy and stylish opening credits to surprisingly violent, bone-breaking action scenes that he refrains from playing for laughs.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Spy is a foul-mouthed, often hilariously disgusting, slightly padded comedy that soars on the strengths of writer-director Paul Feig’s wonderfully idiotic script and nimble camerawork, and the bountiful comedic talents of Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne and Jason Statham.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    The character is sweetly sympathetic — less “Tammy” than “Mike & Molly” — and the laughs and chaos are all the more infectious for it.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The fun of Spy comes in watching the right actors mess with their own images, blithely.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    Spy, similarly, doesn’t exactly send up James Bond or Jason Bourne espionage thrillers, but it places McCarthy in the middle of the action while subverting the traditionally male domination of that arena.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steve Macfarlane

    It's the sustained, full-bodied mania of Melissa McCarthy's performance that anchors the film's many winning blind-alley gags.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    McCarthy has much more to discover about herself as an actor and an avatar and a cultural signifier, and I hope she doesn’t get trapped by one role, one genre or one franchise. But her campaign of conquest is going well. Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Some of the combat scenes work, including a kitchen-set hand-to-hand battle that's one of the movie's highlights, but more often they feel superfluous at best.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The problem is that writer/director Paul Feig became too enamored with his storyline which, at best, could be described as a lame James Bond parody.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    As cinema, Spy is content to cater to its own conventions, hit the required marks and earn a few laughs along the way. As a cultural bellwether, it does something bigger and more important, without ever italicizing that fact.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The fights and deaths are somewhat comical, the one-liners hit or miss and the stunts faked with less sleight of hand than a director experienced in action might have managed. And Feig can’t bear to end this thing, which goes on far past the point of endurance. But he’s done better by McCarthy here, and she has delivered a performance that’s more deft than her usual daft.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Spy boasts tons of the type of low-humor that fuel so many Seth Rogen and Will Ferrell frat-boy movies. The difference here is that the laughs aren't at the expense of the fat kid. By the time the closing credits roll, McCarthy's character been built up, not torn down -- and we're rooting for her, not guffawing at her.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Feig keeps throwing so much stuff at you — gross-out gags, chases, brutal violence, not to mention actors working their heads off — that he finally wears down your resistance. In the end, I admired him for keeping this ramshackle construction together, casting performers I adore, and proving that Melissa McCarthy can, indeed, hold a gun. A mixed victory. A definitively mixed review.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The moments when Spy falls apart are when the film fancies itself the real thing. The times when it works are due to its leading lady.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Though it’s been two years since they collaborated on "The Heat," Spy makes the case that Feig and McCarthy are still just warming up.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    This is a different sort of comedy that more or less succeeds on its own terms, despite that fact that you find yourself rooting for the post-Snowden CIA.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Alas, “sad case” is not how we want to see McCarthy; it’s frustrating to see her spend more than half the movie being the pathetic target of jokes rather than the dominating figure she was in “Bridesmaids” and “The Heat,” both of which are far funnier than this one.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    With the overlong, limp and lazy Spy, Feig has lost his mojo.
