Is ‘Spy’ Any Good? Mike and Matt Debate on the Latest Episode of ‘Post Credits’
Welcome back to another installment of Post Credits, ScreenCrush’s movie review show. On this week’s episode, ScreenCrush Editor-in-Chief Mike Sampson and Managing Editor and Film Critic Matt Singer debate whether to use their licenses to kill on Spy, the new action comedy from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig and star Melissa McCarthy.
Topics discussed on the latest Post Credits include McCarthy’s future as a leading lady, the awesomeness of Rose Byrne, and whether or not Jason Statham absolutely steals the movie playing a disgusting sexist pig who wants to keep McCarthy’s desk-bound secret agent out of the field. Plus, Mike and Matt debate whether the spy spoof genre is officially played out, and rate the movie on their patented one to ten scale. (No one else does one to ten rating scales! They’re the only ones in the entire world!)
So what are you waiting for? Watch this Spy review before Bobby Cannavale attempts to take over the world and in the process makes it extremely difficult to access YouTube videos (oh god, what a terrible, hideous nightmare). Afterwards, check out the rest of our Post Credits episodes below, read our full print review of Spy, and peruse the list of the best comedies of the last 25 years that Matt and Mike mention on the show. Next time on Post Credits, barring any last minute changes: Matt and Mike rank their favorite movies of 2015 so far. (SPOILER ALERT: Spy did not make the cut.)
