A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.
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.

Reportedly, the film was inspired by the re-boot of the official James Bond movie series, with Casino Royale (2006) starring Daniel Craig, which writer-director-producer Paul Feig said to show-business trade paper 'Variety' ranks as one of his favorite ever movies. See more »
When Susan Cooper steals a moped she is wearing black stilettos. However when she tries to jump from the ramp and the moped lands in the bed of wet concrete the camera angle from the waist down shows she is wearing a pair of flat black shoes obviously indicating where the stunt performer has been substituted for Melissa McCarthy. As the camera cuts back to a medium shot of McCarthy driving through the concrete the stiletto's then reappear. See more »

I watch this at least once a week. It just gets better and funnier as it goes along following Melisss's character and her side kick. This movie wouldn't have worked without Miranda. Great yin and yang! Theyshould remake AbFab! Melissa as Edina ans Miranda as a super tall Patsy. AbFab on Speed! I can't wait for the sequel. This was a brilliant movie for adults, apparently some people are squeamish. I'm lucky I'm not a little bitch who leaves 10 bad reviews from different emails because my 12th cat died. I don't understand these bad reviews unless it's just haters with a bible up their butts. They'll probably vote For Trump lol. Ewwwwwwww can you say passé? I don't trust reviews usually so I'm here to say this movie actually made me laugh. Nothing makes me laugh anymore. Five stars
