Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) directs and writes this spy-comedy about Susan Cooper (the brilliant Melissa McCarthy) and her misadventures as a secret agent. The supporting cast features Rose Byrne, Jude Law and Jason Statham.

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

This marks Feig's third teaming with McCarthy, after Bridesmaids and The Heat.

The principal scene-stealer turns out to be Australia's Rose Byrne. She delivers a performance composed of a series of small comic gems produced with a minimum of fuss.

Laugh-stuffed and making excellent use of its marquee-grade supporting cast...

There's a sense of witnessing a woman empowered and it's a hoot to see McCarthy given the space she deserves to spread her comic wings.

Laugh out loud all the way McCarthy's funniest film yet with superb turns from Law and Byrne. Entertaining stuff!

There were moments in this film which had me laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. It certainly had my mother in stitches too. Overall this movie was a predictable, a little silly but was lots of fun. I enjoyed the cast which was full of A listers and as always Melissa McCarthy did a great job. Jude Law's American accent has you listening carefully...

Some nearly choke laughing moments. Action stuff if stupid but good. I'll easily watch this again.

Plenty of laugh out loud moments amongst the ridiculous stunt scenes. Worth it to see Jason Statham on form & Melissa McCarthys versatility.

For me, Melissa McCarthy's best comedy to date. Great cast, Statham is perfect, Rose Byrne's deadpan is terrific. Much, much better than I expected.

I really enjoyed this film! A great line up of actors and actresses and a different take on a comedy that isn't "predictable". Would happily see it again!

Actors were awesome. Great to see women taking the lead without it being a complete 'chick flick'. Funny make support roles. Jason Statham was excellent with Melissa. Rose is great as ever. Jude Law not as attractive without his usual accent but don't let that stop you. Loved it. A few gross bits but they were hilarious.

Good balance of laughs and action but moments where the movie dragged on for a bit. The cast was good but felt under-utilised at times, would have loved to have seen Miranda Hart used for better comedic effect.

A must see, funny, some times shockingly gory, does not fail to deliver. Totally girl power too.
