AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Insipid and mirthless, I-Spy bares little resemblance to the TV series that inspired it.

Critic Reviews for I Spy

All Critics (148) | Top Critics (37)

Though ample time is spent mingling Murphy's jabberjaw locutions and Wilson's curveball spaciness, the film leaves only the bitter reek of a botched chemistry experiment.

I really resent a movie like this that just looks like it's made by a committee when you have two such huge talents wasted like this.

Top Critic

TV classic remade as a forgettable buddy movie.

Common Sense Media

Serves up the expected gags and set pieces in service of a thoroughly been-there, done-that plot line.

A ótima química entre Eddie Murphy e Owen Wilson rende bons momentos.

Cinema em Cena

Murphy and Wilson seem to be having a contest to see who can be more obnoxious and, sadly, it's too close to call.

Not a very funny movie. The story really is weak and barely good action comes our way. I saw this film pretty much for Owen Wilson since i'm not a Eddie Murphy movie fan per se. Watch at own risk!

When the Switchblade, the most sophisticated prototype stealth fighter created yet, is stolen from the U.S. government, one of the United States' top spies, Alex Scott, is called to action. What he doesn't expect is to get teamed up with a cocky civilian, World Class Boxing Champion Kelly Robinson, on a dangerous top secret espionage mission. Their assignment: using equal parts skill and humor, catch Arnold Gundars, one of the world's most successful illegal arms dealers, and foil his treacherous plans for the plane.

More another worthless picture by Betty Thomas and Eddie Murphy.

High School theater viewing, didn't like it at the time. Thought one scene was funny but was disinterested throughout. Watched it again recently and my opinion hasn't changed. Eddie Murphy is Chris Tucker in Rush Hour or Eddie Murphy in anything he has ever done.
