The Spy Who Dumped Me

Critics Consensus

The Spy Who Dumped Me isn't the funniest or most inventive spy comedy, but Kate McKinnon remains as compulsively watchable as ever.

  • This film doesn't quite come together like it should, it has all of the spy hijinks , and the action, and its a little over the top with the action in some scenes.

  • The Bourne Identity becomes somewhat essential late summer viewing for one reason and one reason alone: Kate McKinnon.

  • McKinnon works well with her co-star Mila Kunis, although as so often in this kind of film, you suspect that they could get more laughs by doing some extended on-camera improvisation.

  • Thank goodness for McKinnon, who launches this middling material to greater heights through her own sheer will. Now that's a superpower.

    Aug 8, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Beneath the film's pop feminism bubbles an anger that might potentially have more than one target - and which leaves you wondering what this genre will look like in another couple of years.

    Aug 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Comedies and spy thrillers aren't inherently incompatible but it takes a deft hand and a well-honed script to successfully merge the two and The Spy Who Dumped Me has neither.

Audience Reviews for The Spy Who Dumped Me


Not good, for sure, but way exceeded my expectations. Final rating:â~...â~... 1/2 - Not quite for me, but I definitely get the appeal.

The Ed Snowden subplot here is better than all of "Snowden". That said, this looks and feels like another in the vein of "Mila Kunis makes middle-of-the-road-comedy for gullible middle class". And it totally is. That it purports this perspective at all is obviously a tad annoying, but what is truly irritating is the product itself cements this stance by not trying. At all. Well, except for McKinnon...she can't seem to help but to give a damn. It is mostly thanks to McKinnon's energy that "The Spy Who Dumped Me" offers a few solid laughs and remains light on its feet even when we see every beat coming and even when writer/director Susanna Fogel and co-writer David Iserson get a little too carried away with the genre they're playing in. Kudos to McKinnon for her Chris Kirkpatrick joke as well. That shit was gold.

This movie is a little (too) much, but the most irritating is that it was made by a woman - a woman who doesn't seem to realize how irritating it is to follow two stereotypically dumb American women who are very lucky not to get killed after five minutes (though we wish they did).

A pretty good team up (Kunis and McKinnon) with pretty good chemistry and a premise to hold our interest through. Somehow though something gets lost ... connection perhaps. Rate this as a spy spoof that achieves "almost". Anyhow, McKinnon STILL is lacking a script that can carry her unique talents. And as for Kunis I understand Bad Moms or Book of Eli is the way to go. The guys do the James Bond/action star okay, but fail at the international lover tag. The best gag is the Harvard/Yale graduates riff. And the strongest presence in the whole piece comes from Justine Wachsberger, who's simmer is tantalizing.
