A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.
I laughed a lot with this movie and that’s always a good sign. It wasn’t perfect and I again got tired of the jokes making fun of McCarthy’s weight and unremarkableness, but it was nowhere near as bad as some of her other movies.
Some of the best parts of the film were the supporting characters. I loved the sex obsessed Aldo, Peter Serafinowicz, and Nancy, Miranda Hart, played a great best friend. I liked that they didn’t make Nancy as field capable as McCarthy’s character.
I was surprised at what they did with Ford, Jason Statham’s character. Based on the previews I thought he was going to be a sort of mentor to McCarthy’s character but instead he was a macho idiot. I’m not sure if I liked him or not.
I really liked the ending and that she didn’t wind up in bed with Jude Law’s character, I did wish that he had stayed bad and that they hadn’t made him a triple agent.
If they do a sequel I hope it’s with the same characters.
