The Spy Who Dumped Me is a 2018 action comedy film directed by Susanna Fogel. The film was co-written by Fogel and David Iserson. The film stars Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Justin Theroux, Sam Heughan, Hasan Minhajand, and Gillian Anderson. It follows two best friends who are chased through Europe by assassins after one of their ex-boyfriends who turns out to be a CIA agent.

The Spy Who Dumped Me is about Audrey (Kunis) and Morgan (McKinnon), two best friends who unwittingly become entangled in an international conspiracy when it is discovered Audrey's boyfriend who dumped her was actually a spy.

The Spy Who Dumped Me was a film I didn't know what to expect from. I knew this had the potential to be good, but like most of the films like this they aren't.

While this film isn't great, it also not bad. It's a nice fun movie.

Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon were both great. There chemistry was great. They were definitely the highlight of this film. They were both hilarious when they were on screen together.

The supporting cast also wasn't bad. They were all pretty funny. It's a fun cast.

The plot's solid. It does suffer at times, but it's solid. The story does get a little chunky in the middle.

The biggest problem with the plot is that it really doesn't know what it wants to be. It played out like a spy film, but it feels more like a buddy cop film. It's not that bad in the beginning, but when we dive deeper into the plot it starts to stick out.

Some of the decisions the characters make don't seem real. They'll do certain things that seems to only movie the plot forward.

There are some twist andturns throughout the film. None of them are super choking, but they hold up.

How the plot moves forwards feels thin at times, but at other times it's overwhelming.

At times it feels like a straight up comedy, but other times it feels like a R-rated Taken like action film.

There are some graphic scenes in this film. I was surprised by the amount of straight up violence. It is a spy film, so violence is expected.

This film has the tendency to shift it's tone around. First it's a comedy, then an adult action film, before shifting back to a comedy, only to shift to romance.

The plot isn't perfect, and at times it does feel forced. However, Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon are perfect in their roles. They're entertaining enough that when the plot falls flat the film is still watchable.

I don't think this is a perfect film. However it is very entertaining, and it offers some genuine laughs throughout the film.

This film isn't going to be winning any awards, and it isn't going to break records. With that being said I thought this was a fun, entertaining film. A great popcorn flick.

3 stars for The Spy Who Dumped Me
