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 and Sergio are shown flying the Eurocopter helicopter, the aircraft is shown responding to them manipulating the "stick" (the cyclic), as if it were a conventional fixed-wing aircraft. The controls work entirely differently in a helicopter than in an airplane. When the helicopter begins to dive towards the lake for instance, Susan is shown pulling back on the cyclic. Doing this would result in a substantial climb in an airplane, but is not what primarily makes a helicopter climb. The cyclic moves the helicopter in a direction - forwards, backwards and to the side. The collective (the control on the left side of the seat that the pilot moves up and down), changes the pitch of the main rotor blades and create lift. To stop the descent, Susan should pull up on the collective. The helicopter doesn't react appropriately to any of the control movements we see either of them do. See more »

Spy is an action comedy starring the versatile and hilarious actress Melissa McCarthy. This movie is an American version of a James Bond movie, with added humor—but not in the manner of movies like Johnny English (2003) or Mordecai (2015). It's not a parody. The movie has a rather serious and complex plot complete with red herrings and twists. I wouldn't say it's completely realistic, but it's just enough to make it very funny without being too outlandish. It reminds me of one of my all time favorite action comedies "True Lies" (1994), where in both films unlikely people are thrust into CIA missions. Susan Cooper (McCartney) is a CIA agent who works as a guide for Bradley Fine (Jude Law). While Fine is doing field work, he is equipped with cameras. Cooper watches these cameras and alerts Fine of oncoming danger. During a mission to stop the transferring of a nuclear bomb, the cameras begin to malfunction, Cooper's images become unclear, and Fine is shot. The CIA chooses to put Cooper on the field to continue Fine's mission. Cooper has been at her desk her entire career, however Cooper is considered a CIA agent and therefore is considered qualified to take on the mission, although she is seemingly far from fit for the job in many ways. Being that Cooper has always worked at a desk, she is completely unknown to the enemies and can thus work well undercover. Having worked with Fine all these years, and having deeper feelings for Fine than even he knew, Cooper feels it is her duty to avenge Fine's death. She sets off to Europe jumping from one crazy circumstance to another. She quickly become more than meets the eye as her quick wit and even physical abilities are unleashed. This is a great comedy filled with witty banter, British satire, slapstick comedy and even some raunchy humor. Stay for the credits—even they're funny.
