Trivia

"The film's scenic international locations and spy-thriller orientation have called forth a much higher level of technical polish than usual for a studio comedy" according to show-business trade paper 'Variety'. See more »

Goofs

Hungarian license plates are invalid. During the assassination attempt on Rayna in Budapest the red car's plate is 6SE-486, the BMW's is 8GA-601 and the scooter's is 8ZE-657. They are Hungarian plates, as the 'H' country code is clearly visible. However, normal Hungarian license plates are in the form of 3 letter - 3 numbers. Custom and special plates can have other formats, but in any case they never begin with a number. See more »

Alternate Versions

The Philippine theatrical and DVD versions have the sequence where Susan and the CIA find out who Renaldo is edited, with no hint of them seeing the penis images. The cable version in that territory retains the shots of them reacting upon seeing the images, but the images themselves remain unseen. See more »

The Family Guy of Spy Movies
18 September 2015 | by themissingpatientSee all my reviews

The Family Guy of Spy movies is here. A sneeze joke, a bat poop joke, awkward unrequited love jokes, a pink-eye joke and fart jokes all within the first 35 minutes. Also, like all of Paul Feig's films, you have Melissa McCarthy being humiliated for over 2 hours. What's new about this one? We get to see Jude Law play an infallible character while Jason Statham completely debases himself in his most embarrassing role to-date. Then there's Peter Serafinowicz as Aldo, a sexual deviant who spends every moment he has on-screen trying to molest McCarthy.

What about the action? There's isn't any shaky camera effects but it's filled with quick cuts and terrible special effects. Even worse, Feig randomly uses slow-motion during action stunts, which becomes annoyingly repetitive and is completely pointless. Unlike the The Wachowskis, Zack Snyder and Matthew Vaughn, who have mastered this effect, making it a part of their style, Paul Feig makes it clear he has no idea what he's doing. Truly, a terrible writer and director with bad taste and no style of his own.

Can Paul Feig degrade women on-screen any further? As bottom of the barrel as the jokes are through-out this atrocity, the only thing that isn't made fun of is McCarthy's weight. Yet, every other aspect about her appearance and personality is targeted for cheap laughs.

So, what can we learn from Spy? You can humiliate a woman in every way possible, even sexual assault, as long as you don't mention her weight. Also, we're all going to need to come together and boycott the new Ghostbusters because Paul Feig should never be allowed to make another film again. Ever.
