Hello, Movie Buffs! 
     I have been eagerly anticipating the release of The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) since the moment I found out that one of my favorite actors, Sam Heughan (Outlander TV), was going to star in the film. Now, while I knew the basics about the film’s story and I have seen the trailers on numerous occasions, I did not know what I was to expect from the film. I’ve seen my fair share of comedies, mostly featuring men in the leading roles with almost no substance or high-octane action, but this film is different.

     The Spy Who Dumped Me is a comedy that follows Audrey who finds out that her ex-boyfriend, Drew, is a spy and her along with her best friend, Morgan, must finish his mission. While the story was predictable and not super original, the comedy helps distract from those aspects of the story. It is a rare occasion when I can say that I have seen a movie and I was able to hear everyone laughing in the theater. The film is quick to immerse the audience into the mindless shenanigans and action sequences that will leave you laughing the entire time.
     The cast was great and while I am not a huge fan of Mila Kunis (That 70’s Show) and Kate McKinnon (Ghostbusters), they both had great chemistry. Kunis shines in her own way as the more level-headed, Audrey, but McKinnon steals most of the show as more outrageous, Morgan. Sam Heughan is incredible as the MI6 agent, Sebastian Henshaw. This is his first major motion film since joining Outlander, as expected he really holds his own amongst all the comedy from the girls and his action sequence was pretty good. I cannot wait to see him in season 4 of Outlander (Nov 2018) and in any more major films in the future. The rest of the cast does pretty well in their own right.

    Overall, The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) was an entertaining and very funny surprise. I knew the film would be good based on the trailers and actors but I was not prepared for how funny it would be. The story was a bit predictable but the comedy helps distract from it and the action sequences were as intense as they were funny. This is not a chick-flick. I saw the film with my dad and there were a number of guys with their wives in the theater. If you a fan of Melissa McCarthy’s Spy (2015), then you are going to enjoy this film. Be prepared to laugh most of the time.

"I killed someone! I killed someone!"
