M and I have decided to make a serious attempt to decrease our computer time, and one is that we do movie nights together. Streaming services and the library make this easy and relaxing. The only issue is us trying to agree on a film.
I picked “Spy” with Melissa McCarthy! A+++ choice, absolutely hilarious. It makes of so many spy movie tropes to great effect. We laughed so much and so hard. And the cat lady jokes abound, oh man.
Meliessa McCarthy was fantastic as a superspy that also bumbles. She was charming and hilarious.
John Statham was hilariously over the top, and it was freaking amazing.
I love Rose Byrne. She delivers every mean girl line with panache and great timing. And she’s straight-man hilarious. Like, deadpan doing hilarious things, it’s amazing.
And oh, Allison Janney. Oh man, everyone was a winner. Even the henchmen! Especially the henchmen!
A++ would recommend, especially on movie night with boozy mulled cider.
