Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon), two thirty-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, are thrust unexpectedly into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend shows up at their apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. Surprising even themselves, the duo jump into action, on the run throughout Europe from assassins and a suspicious-but-charming British agent, as they hatch a plan to save the world.

The Spy Who Dumped Me – In Theaters August 3, 2018! Starring Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Justin Theroux, Gillian Anderson, Hasan Minhaj, Ivanna Sakhno, and Sam Heughan.

She’s been in a semi-big to big movie every year for the last 10 years. So, yea.

There was this little art house film in 2015 called Bad Moms. It made $184M with a budget of $22M.

I was really hoping this was Austin Powers being reviews, but this might be a better idea.

one of these days she'll make another movie that lives up to her star turn in Santa With Muscles.

Seems like your by-the-numbers action comedy. Might be worth an on-demand rental on a lazy Sunday afternoon one day.

Hey, you're out of touch with actors and movies as much as you are football!

Trailer looks ok, if not somewhat generic. Could be a pleasant surprise, given the cast.

Not to mention all of her cartoon voice over work...she seems well liked by Hollywood considering how much money she has made since That 70's Show ended.

I am a fan and will enjoy seeing this when it hits cable (I usually pass on comedies in the theater even if I like the stars of the film, as I do in this particular case).

I wish they casted somebody else instead of Kunis. I never liked her, she sucks as an actress, and she looks bitchy.

Kate McKinnon is the true talent and hope she gets better material to showcase her talents.

Anyone check this out? I'm on the fence. I'm thinking it's better left as a rental.

Go with your gut. I went to the sneak preview last week. (Since Movie Pass promoted it, it was the only Friday night movie without the BS peak fee attached to it.) There were some funny moments, but overall it was just meh. Worth a Redbox rental maybe.

Others in the theater seemed to really enjoy it, so maybe I'm wrong. *shrug*

I don't really watch SNL these days, so I'm not all that familiar with Kate McKinnon. At one point in the movie a character says to her "you're a bit much" and that was my feeling, as well. Could've just been the material, though.

Is it true it's actually a better action movie than comedy? I heard the action is pretty great, but falls apart towards the end.

The action's not bad. The comedy is the weaker part, IMHO.

It seems it's very hard to make a consistently funny comedy these days.

Yeah it definitely had more action and violence than I expected. If you like the leads it's worth a watch.

I love Kunis, so will probably check this out at some point as a cheap rental, but not something I'd see in theaters.

My daughter wants to take me to see MISSION IMPOSSIBLE FALLOUT for my birthday this weekend, but I kind of want to see this more and my daughter's a big fan of McKinnon. (I have yet to see McKinnon in anything but YouTube SNL clips. The only thing I've seen Kunis in was BLACK SWAN and I don't remember her character at all.) However, FALLOUT sounds like it would be best seen on the big screen while this one I could catch up with on cable and not really lose anything.

So we went to see FALLOUT and afterwards both of us wished we'd seen THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME instead. If I never see another Tom Cruise movie, it'll be too soon for me.
