After a humiliating command performance at The Kennedy Center, the Barden Bellas enter an international competition that no American group has ever won in order to regain their status and right to perform.
Susan Cooper is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency's most dangerous missions. But when her partner falls off the grid and another top agent is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global crisis.

Suave debonair secret agent spy characters like James Bond and Bradley Fine (Jude Law) are suitably known for being well-attired. "Spy" director Paul Feig was named one of Esquire's "Best Dressed Men of 2012" - the same year that the Bond film Skyfall (2012) debuted - and as "The Best Dressed Man in Hollywood" in Esquire's "Winter 2012 Black Book Edition".

Not a bad movie funnier then I thought it would be .
SPY is a gem. Its a little movie that feels like a James Bond and yet it stands on its own. Sure the humor can be crude and the language can be vulgar. But show me a comedy these days that doesn't have swearing in it. It is almost a must it seems to see which comedy can out swear the other. Or vulgarities galore. Seth Rogen's Meet the neighbors had more Vulgar behavior then Spy. And Yet Spy is almost a classy movie. It's a spoof on all the James Bond flicks but What If 007 this time around is a agent who hasn't left the CIA basement in ten years?
Susan Cooper is the voice in Secret Agent Bradley Fine's ear. and his Eye from the sky. Working as a team its Susan's Intel that makes Bradley Fine look so good. But when Bradley is murdered by the daughter of a mad man who had a dirty nuke for sale and hid it.Only problem is Bradley killed the father before they could find out where the bomb is . And Since the daughter announced the names of all active field agents its time to introduce a new agent to the field. Susan Cooper. Susan has no experience in the field and whatever skills she has are rusty. But she is soon on the trail of the bad guys determined to avenge the death of Bradley Fine. When things suddenly don't seem like they are. And Susan has to rely on people she may not trust to complete the mission. Including a rogue Agent played by Jason Stratham who is a pure delight.
Is this movie for everyone ? No. But it was funnier then I thought it would be and I laughed out loud . Which to me means the film was a success.
