The Spy Who Dumped Me

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

So that’s the whole premise – cashier Audrey Stockton has been dumped by her boyfriend Drew via text. It’s her birthday and her best friend and roommate, Morgan, tries to cheer her up. However it turns out that Drew is a spy and he calls her and tells her that he dumped her. He asks her not to burn his stuff. At her work, a man she flirted with, Sebastian, and a colleague force her into a van and he proceeds to tell her he is Sebastian Henshaw and that Drew works for the C.I.A. and has gone missing. A man Morgan  slept with turns out to be a rival spy and he and others are out to be after the secret usb drive Drew left hidden in a trophy. Drew turns up and is then murdered.

Audrey & Morgan then go on a manic travel adventure through Europe where they get shot at and have few people that they can trust. Everyone seems to be after the data in the drive, even an old friend of Morgan’s father is killed and a killer pretends to be the friend just to get the drive and including a fashion model/androgynous model cum gymnast. Sebastian happens to be the only one on the girls’s side and helps then at every turn, even going against orders. After they recover the data – which Audrey hid in her vagina ffs! – it turns out that the data is a lot of information which can be used for blackmail governments. Drew turns up alive and in a predictable twist is actually a bad guy and is finally bested by Audrey and Morgan. Sebastian & Audrey kiss and a year later Morgan & Audrey now work as spies and are on a case in Japan with Sebastian.

Predictable, corny, ridiculous, totally contrived story and plotlines. I could predict a lot of things from a mile away and it feels like the jokes are just crude and stupid for the most part. I wonder what the whole point was. 6 outta 10!
