So my thoughts before going to deep into this trailer, I really thought this was going to be like a romantic action movie. I thought that Mila Kunis was going to be the ex-girlfriend of Kate McKinnon, and they break-up because McKinnon's life as a spy is way to dangerous for Kunis and somehow or another she gets wrapped up in said danger. Never the less and the movie is filled with ex-partner banter, weapon jargon, action, reconciliation and both of them taking down the villain together. It's not, it's an action comedy but that rocks too. I loved Melissa McCarthy in Spy, in 2015. I loved that it was about a woman almost single handedly being a bad-ass and solving her case. There were a lot of groundbreaking tropes used in that movie that made it stand out. The first being a female lead in a spy movie, and also that she's not the average woman in a size 2- 8 dress size. Plus being wildly funny and ending with the female lead finding her own happiness outside of a man. Very nice.
The spy who dumped me has a similar genre, of an action comedy. It centers on Mila Kunis the ex-girlfriend of the male spy in this movie with McKinnon as her partner traversing the dangerous adventure ahead. It looks fun and light. The fact that it's a mostly female cast is great. The jokes set up within the trailer consists on the, rookies find out how hard a job is, type jokes. What intrigues me to watch this movie is the plot. I'm hoping, like in the movie Spy the ending will surprise me.
