The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018)

Susanna Fogel directs Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon and Sam Heughan in this buddy action comedy about a pair of flatmates who get embroiled in a globetrotting caper. 

This is overlong, uninspired and surprisingly violent (for a light spoof it goes full Bourne at times) . The chuckles come in jerking spits and spats. Yet I did enjoy it. It was distractingly colourful and gave Kunis and McKinnon lots of leeway to show off their chemistry. They riff well off each other. I’d definitely give a tighter scripted, more off the wall sequel a chance.
