SPY | SXSW Film Review
This movie, is what Melissa McCarthy’s fans will love. A film completely built around her talent and appeal, it's a blast watching this hilarious cast globe-trotting in action-comedy sequences that doesn't try to become a spoof or complete action thriller. The language and violence add to the adult factor that will have anyone cracking up in their chairs. This is the type of film you'll want to take your best friend to, just so you'll elbow each other after the hilarious moments you're likely to laugh over.

Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is a deskbound CIA analyst who provides instantaneous intel into the earpiece of a globetrotting field agent (Jude Law). But when he runs afoul of a Bulgarian criminal cartel, Susan is sent on a recon mission, hampered by a rogue agent (Jason Statham) and aided by her oddball colleague (Miranda Hart). Donning a series of outrageous identities, Susan infiltrates the shadowy world of an alluring but dangerous weapons dealer (Rose Byrne). The two women leave a trail of mayhem crisscrossing Europe, as Susan utilizes deception and false bravado to try to outwit Rayna and locate a stolen nuke.
