Critic Reviews

Consensus: Insipid and mirthless, I-Spy bares little resemblance to the TV series that inspired it.
  • 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. More...
  • 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. More...
  • Unexceptional espionage comedy. More...
  • The trappings of I Spy are so familiar you might as well be watching a rerun. More...
  • Moves at a glacial pace. More...
  • Banal and predictable. More...
  • I cry for I Spy -- or I would if this latest and laziest imaginable of all vintage-TV spinoffs were capable of engendering an emotional response of any kind. More...
  • The time has come to offer thanks to Owen Wilson. More...
  • A loose, lighthearted romp that's a notch above the usual buddy comedies. More...
  • As inept as big-screen remakes of The Avengers and The Wild Wild West. More...
