The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Spy Who Dumped Me is pretty bad.  It’s overlong, unfunny and grating.  The jokes land flat, the action is pretty meh and overall it did very little to entertain me for it’s two hour run time.  for me it probably sits in the bottom 10 films of 2018 and certainly not one I’d suggest was worth a revisit.

Best Bit: The escape/Gymnast fight is pretty fun

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I liked the original Bad Moms a lot.  It was funny, charming and silly. Despite the sequel not receiving the same amount of general critical or commercial acclaim, i found it to be almost equally as funny with the cast delivering as expected with the film flying past the 6, 10 and more Kermodian laugh test.  Yes it’s retreading the same ground as before but it more than passed the evening.  And let’s face it we’ve all been there once or twice…

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Okay so this isn’t the disaster the early marketing suggested it could be but it’s also FAR away from the 4 star reviews it’s been getting. I think, ultimately, I just don’t get Paul Feig films – The Heat, Bridesmaids and Spy especially did NOTHING for me and here, again, whilst the cast all do okay (standout being Kate McKinnon) you just can’t help but feel there’s nothing new here once the role reversal gimmick wears off. You are left with a reboot I didn’t really want, of a film that didn’t need it, and a director that goes out of his way to remind you just how good the original film really was.

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Trainwreck is funny.  Really funny. Whether you like it or not however will depend on two things.  1 – if you film Schumer and her style funny. 2- if you can cope with Judd Apatatatatataow’s ridiculously patchy style of film making.  Because if the answer to either or both is no, I’d avoid this as for every standout moment there’s a Apatatatatataow signature dip or sequence that could be shorter.  It;s a shame was nearly everyone of his films he’s involved with could be excellent, where as they just end up mostly okay or fine.

Best Bit: Schumer delivers

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I officially don’t like Melissa McCarthy.  I’ve tried but I just don’t get her or her “humour”.  Spy is everything I hate in modern ‘comedy’. Without Jason Statham this would have been at best a 3/10 film.  Statham add’s enough humour and class in his limited appearances to make this lifeless, dull as dishwater ‘comedy’ JUST about bearable. I wear that I think this team will be making Ghostbusters for nearly next year.

Best Bit: Statham

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Do you like extended advert for Apple products?  Do you like really unfunny films? Do you like being REALLY bored for over and hour and a half?  If the answer to all these questions are YES then I’d invite you to watch Sex tape.  If not… I implore you to avoid this unfunny pile of crap.

Best Bit: I just can’t find one.
