5/10: A by-the-book "super-spy meets little girl w/hot mom" movie
Friday, April 17, 2020

It's pretty formulaic. It's pretty predictable. Thus, not very interesting.But, it has its moments. Most jokes are formulaic and predictable, but, quite a few are not and work well. I best like spoofing "Mission Impossible", it's a wonder people don't do it more, it's so ripe for spoofing. There's not enough of these good jokes to make this a good comedy, but, enough to make it acceptable.While the girl isn't as cute as she thinks she is, she actually plays the "smart & cocky" girl pretty well and her interaction w/Bautista works well. Her mom fits the "hot mom" part very well; she doesn't act it very well, though, but, just good enough.The boss is pretty lame, the quirky nerd-partner doesn't really work... It's best to stop exploring the weaknesses, they quickly pile up.Focusing on the good parts, if you like such action comedies, this...

4/10: A mediocre film that (poorly) combines actors with a limited range with poor writing

Bautista is a great comedy straight man and Schaal (can be) hilarious. And indeed, the funniest scenes are between those two. Unfortunately poor writing leaves this film wanting. Instead of JJ coming across as the (intended) emotionally distant, he just comes across as stupid. Instead of funny, a lot of the comedic scenes are just (in the words of my 10 year old) "cringy" . This awkwardness may in part be because the movie seems to be distorting the plot and dialogue to show off how woke they are. They cram in jokes designed for social commentary, but they aren't funny and just suck any humour out of the mostoment. News flash, there's a difference between coming across as progressive and coming across as lecturing. Guess which side of the line this film is on

8/10: Non-stop laughs and entertainment
Monday, December 14, 2020

Watched this with the fam and we were all shocked how loud we were laughing throughout. The trailer (surprisingly) doesn't do this film justice. After seeing it we all went "meh" but since we had no other choices, we watched it and glad we did. That little Chloe Coleman is an amazing actress, and combining her with the amazing Dave Bautista was probably the smartest casting choice this year. For that matter, the entire casting was on point. The directing was great, as was the cinematography and sound. The 99 min runtime and pacing were perfect. The writing had some issues and was a little aloof, but the comedic and brilliant dialogue more than made up for it. It's a 100% must-see film for the entire family. I'm shocked at the current 6.3 low IMDb rating. It's a solid and well deserved 8/10 from me

5/10: Surprisingly pleasant

My Spy" is nothing original but still manages to be filled with action, sweet at its core and entertaining. . In this action-comedy, a CIA operative finds himself at the mercy of a 9-year-old girl, having been sent undercover to surveil her family. . While we've all seen this genre of film before, "My Spy" stays away from being a "family friendly" movie and goes more for stylized action and mild cursing. It's worth the watch just to see Dave Bautista and Chloe Coleman together. They're cute, fun and Coleman is great. For a night in quarantine, this easy going flick is a safe bet for young and old. .

7/10: We enjoyed it
Thursday, August 6, 2020

Honestly it wasn't that bad. I think maybe it's being reviewed too seriously. It's a light-hearted feel good film that has a few genuine laughs and isn't as cringe as "kid spy" movies tend to be. We watched it on Amazon Prime due to the virus but I imagine it would have been better to watch with other people in theaters.My only gripe was the unnecessary bad language. Repeatedly hearing b***h and s**t in the Cardi B song when it only takes 30 seconds to use the clean version for a movie that's marketed to kids and young families
