I know Melissa McCarthy since 'Gilmore Girls', but never thought she would rise this far, especially to dominate in a movie with the presence of the big names around her, that too in an action film equivalent to top quality.

These things are really, really not for me. I found a couple of laughs in Statham's role but beyond that Spy did nothing for me. I know folks who do enjoy this, and other Feig/McCarthy films, but I genuinely do not understand the appeal, maybe Spy is better than the others, maybe not, but it did absolutely nothing to turn me around on these collabs.
Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product.
