SPY [Jun. 29th, 2015|10:07 pm]

OMG you guys, everybody go see Spy, like, IMMEDIATELY!

It is a hilarious comedy, and, at the same time, it is also an excellent James Bond movie. Like, 100%, a solid James Bond flick. Just minus James Bond and all the sexism, plus Melissa McCarthy and lots of funny. (Also Miranda Hart!)

It's got many different flavors of humor, and it's mostly not a satire/send-up of spy movies. It is an action movie, and has a lot of really good action in it. And pacing. And did I mention it's funny?

And stay through the credits! And pay attention to them! Because I want to be able to reference the jokes and have people cackle along with me!

SO GOOD!

What I loved about the movie is that it managed to be intelligently, thoughtfully hysterical without a single fat joke. I am now a Melissa McCarthy Fan 4 Life.

Yes! And the movie took her character seriously. Her being the lead was never the joke.

Definitely one of the better movies to come out this summer.

Loved it! And all of her undercover identities in the credits were cracking me up!

We both laughed so hard at those we almost choked.

I assume it is "mom" appropriate? I think we may take her to see it this weekend.

Well, depends on mom. What does she not like / what can you not handle being in the same room with her for?

well, I sat through the season of Buffy when Spike and Buffy were having sex every where and he did things like putting his hand up her dress and making her moan. I guess if I can sit through that next to my mom I can handle anything Melissa McCarthy will throw at us hahaha

In hindsight it was a silly question, I know my mom liked Bridesmaids and that identity theft movie she did, Spy will be enjoyed too I'm sure.

This is definitely on our list, so maybe we'll see it this weekend. Always, my favorite parts of the James Bond films have been those that weren't about Bond. The scenes in the MI-6 offices and especially in Q's laboratory are the best.
