Hollywood’s list of action-comedies has steadily been building over the years, treating us to big hits such as 21 Jump Street, to the hugely forgettable Hot Pursuit (remember that one? Exactly). With the amount the studios are churning out, there are bound to be a few duds, and The Spy Who Dumped Me looks like falling into that category.

Two 30-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon), are thrust unexpectedly into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend (Justin Theroux) shows up at their apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail.}

The pair seem to be surprisingly good at the spy buisiness so jump head first into the action and come up with a plan to save the world.

Kunis and McKinnon should make for a powerhouse of a comedy duo, so maybe their performances will salvage it.

The bottom line
Another action movie spoof with a bit of charm.
