Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency's most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

I went with my husband and 14 year old daughter. This is a very funny movie. Not for those with delicate sensibilities. The F-word is in most sentences and there are some quick flashes of a man's penis that had my daughter shielding her eyes. The story moves a little slower than it needs too, but the funny parts make it worth the wait. It has a James Bond flare to the story with some Pink Panther characters. The trailer is a good representation of the movie and it doesn't contain all "the good parts."

Jason Statham is a riot, Jude Law is nice to look at and even though I don't think much of Melissa McCarthy's comedic timing she gets paired up with actors who do, making her awkwardness work for her.

You won't lose anything by watching on DVD vs the big screen. But if you are looking for some laughs at the theater on a hot day, this is worth a matinee price.

  1. Melissa McCarthy is funny as hell and I didn't really pay attention to her until I watched Identity Thief. That's when I looked her up in IMDB and found Bridesmaids. Now I try and catch everything that comes up in the future while accessing older things when time permits. I really like her brand of comedy! :)
