Spy Who Dumped Me"..
Fast-paced action-comedy packed with cliches that work -
car chases. shootouts, gorgeously photographed European cityscapes
and lots of Millenium-friendly talent. And the benefit of
being a rare girl-girl buddy film. Kunjis plays straight and
McKinnon does the schtick wonderfully.
The Spy Who Dumped Me tells the story of Audrey ( Mila Kunis)
a complacent store worker hung up on her inability to finish
anything, and Morgan (Kate McKinnon), two best friends who
unwittingly become entangled in an international conspiracy
when one of the women discovers the boyfriend Drew (Justin
Theroux), an ex-CIA agent who dumped her was actually a spy.
He leaves Audrey to protect her whenhis life is in danger,
then turns on her when she proves she can handle the spy world.This
results inthe girlfriends becoming embroiled in an international
spying escapade in Europe carrying out Drew's instructions
to deliver an important fantasy football trophy to Vienna.
The fumb;ling spies manage to escape many hazardous situations
and triumph inthe end - or is it - does a sequel loom? But
there is one thingfor sure, McKinnon steals the show.
