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.
August 26, 2018
It gets so much right. A sequel, with Morgan in the driving seat, would be awesome.
August 24, 2018
The problem is that the script, by Fogel and David Iserson...offers zilch in the way of laughs.
August 23, 2018
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.

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.
August 6, 2018
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.
August 3, 2018
The movie runs out of plot and jokes well before the end of a two-hour running time, long for a light comedy.
August 3, 2018
The Spy Who Dumped Me isn't quite sure what it wants to be, though that's not always the worst thing: You might call it an ambitious hybrid.
August 3, 2018
The lack of chemistry between the leads and the weakness of the comedy hurts Fogel's cause.

McKinnon, as always, is an unhinged delight, but she and Kunis just don't have enough chemistry to push this grisly tale of friendship-conquers-all over the hump.
August 2, 2018
"The Spy Who Dumped Me" wears its gender politics and its paean to female friendship with gratifying lightness, and Fogel keeps the action moving too briskly for even the missteps to leave skid marks.
August 2, 2018
McKinnon has so much energy and creativity she nearly jumps out of the frame. It's an uneven performance with mixed results - but we're left hoping she'll be matched up with a better film role sometime soon.

The movie runs down at the two-thirds mark. ... There's plenty to hold you, though.
August 2, 2018
There's nothing wrong with trying to be a hard-knuckle action film and a goofy comedy all at once. But here, that effort results in moments of occasionally stunning violence that simply don't mesh with the light-hearted vibe the filmmakers seek elsewhere.
August 2, 2018
[Kunis] and McKinnon make a great pair, but the buddy-comedy aspects of the story keep getting sabotaged by violence.
August 2, 2018
Director and co-writer Susanna Fogel has trouble achieving a tonal balance between the comedy and the action, which only grows increasingly glaring over the course of the film's overlong running time.
August 2, 2018
"The Spy Who Dumped Me" gets by, barely, thanks mainly to Kate McKinnon.
August 2, 2018
"The Spy Who Dumped Me" feels destined to join "Rough Night," 2016's "Ghostbusters" and other movies that didn't know what to do with McKinnon. Her big-screen breakout role is still ahead of her.
