Honestly it wasn't that bad. I think maybe it's being reviewed too seriously. It's a light-hearted feel good film that has a few genuine laughs and isn't as cringe as "kid spy" movies tend to be. We watched it on Amazon Prime due to the virus but I imagine it would have been better to watch with other people in theaters.

My only gripe was the unnecessary bad language. Repeatedly hearing b***h and s**t in the Cardi B song when it only takes 30 seconds to use the clean version for a movie that's marketed to kids and young families.

Pleasantly surprised by how smooth and entertaining My Spy is! Originally wanted to see in the theater glad it's available on Amazon prime. Very funny, delightful throughout, and well paced; I'd definitely watch again! Dave Beautisa is quite cool I think it's awesome he's been trending in the last few years or so. Cool how cute it is in many bits and has a glow with the cinematography.

My Spy is a new family action comedy directed by Peter Segal, the director of Get Smart and Tommy Boy.

The film is about the ex-military JJ (Dave Bautista), who after his time in the army now tries to work as a CIA agent. During his missions he still works too much as a soldier. The CIA does not get the necessary information and decides to use JJ for undercover operation. JJ now has to spy on mother Kate (Parise Fitz-Henley) and her young daughter Sophie (Chloe Coleman) in the hope that her arms trade partner contacts his family. JJ is soon discovered by the clever nine-year-old Sophie, who promises to share nothing about his secret mission with the rest of the world. In return, JJ has to train her on how to become a spy herself.

This movie has his amusing moments about how a young girl can outsmart a novice CIA agent. This aspect has come up before in other films such as the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Kindergarden Cop. For people familiar with such films, this film can quickly become predictable. The script clearly shows the bond between JJ and young Sophie, but the film concentrates a bit too much on this band at a time. For example, the aspect of the secret arms trade is somewhat canceled. The scenes that pass here seem a bit like separate scenes from a completely different film. These different aspects only come together at the end of the film, but otherwise seem to have little in common.

The comedy moments are also somewhat predictable if you are familiar with these kinds of comedy movies. Dave Bautista comes across as a budding CIA agent who doesn't yet know how to best handle his job. While it seems a bit unbelievable that the CIA is discovered by a nine-year-old girl and she manages to outsmart them, these moments make for the best comedy in the movie. For a novice young actress, Chloe Coleman does good and appropriate acting in this film. The better known comedy actors such as Kristen Schaal and Ken Jeong still have more of a cameo in this film and only have a few small comic moments.

Another wrestler on the big screen playing the typecast action hero. This film plays all the cliches and stays on safe ground to keep the kids watching, and they will. We've seen it all before, but it's watchable with some funny moments, plenty of action, but the show stealer with the best lines , for me anyway is his less than glamorous partner. Not an Oscar winner, but very watchable for what it is.

"My Spy" is nothing original but still manages to be filled with action, sweet at its core and entertaining. . In this action-comedy, a CIA operative finds himself at the mercy of a 9-year-old girl, having been sent undercover to surveil her family. . While we've all seen this genre of film before, "My Spy" stays away from being a "family friendly" movie and goes more for stylized action and mild cursing. It's worth the watch just to see Dave Bautista and Chloe Coleman together. They're cute, fun and Coleman is great. For a night in quarantine, this easy going flick is a safe bet for young and old. .

Ok, first of all you shouldn't have to high expectations when going into this movie, because if you do, you will probably get dissapointed...

But let's be real. If you only need a fun and simple movie, without a twistet story you need to stay focused on, then it is a fun little movie where you can just turn your brain of and enjoy it.

The story is fairly simple, sometimes even predictable, there aren't any big moments you will still remember in a few years, there is no 'real espionage action" which you might hope for and of course you could have done more with it. And I must be honest. I myself expected something a bit different from this movie in the beginning and by the trailers. But I like what it is. I can enjoy the charackters and their interactions, I can laugh at a lot of the jokes, and I can simply sit here and enjoy the simple story, without the need to figure out what is happening and I think this is something you could need on a bad day.

So If you want a fun and little movie for your evening after a hard day or for you and your Family, this movie might be worth a Shot.

This is a standard feel good film and it's not hard to work out how is going to go and how it's going to end, but that doesn't really detract from the enjoyment.

The was not as much action as I expected but there was more depth and better acting than I expected as well.

All in all this isnt a high brow, complicated, Oscar winning movie but it is a decent feel good film that works for adults and kids.

I saw this movie with my 4 daughters and we all Loved it! We are not professional movie reviewers or anything like that but absolutely enjoyed all the different emotions in this movie, it was Charming, Comical, Witty, Action Packed, Heart Warming, Suspenseful, and more! We also loved the relationship between David Batista & Chloe Coleman..... just Precious, and their performances charming! There was some violence and language but nothing bloody or disgusting.

IN A NUTSHELL: A massive, burly spy and a precocious, adorable 4th grader. Sounds like a comedic match we have seen many times before (movies with Arnold Schwarzenegger or Dwayne Johnson), yet the funny formula still works. At least, it did for me, my husband, and the majority of the audience who watched a press screening of this spy comedy last night. The movie isn't exactly "Fifty shades of amazing" as one of the character says in the film, but it was still super entertaining and made my tired husband laugh MANY times. That's a huge compliment and endorsement of this spy comedy. We both thought it was cute and enjoyable, despite the many negative reviews we've seen online.

TIPS FOR PARENTS: A surprising amount of profanity for a family-friendly flick. Some crude language. Lots of violence with a high dead body count. You see a severed head fly by in slow motion, a man get a knife thrown into his leg, tons of people get shot or blown up, hand-to-hand combat, and a variety of weapons. Two gay men who live together play a large role as neighbors to Sophie. Sophie assumes Bobbi is a lesbian, which is never confirmed, nor denied. Tons of pop culture references to things young kids may not know anything about like "Queer Eye" Brawny Towels, Waze, and lots of older movies. The movie really seems more tailored to older viewers than as a kids' movie.

THINGS I LIKED: Dave Bautista was never on my radar until I first saw him in Guardians of the Galaxy (Theatrical). I LOVE those movies. I'm such a fan of his now and want him to do well in movies like his professional wrestler mentor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Dave Bautista seems up for anything and is willing to take some heavy hits and look goofy. Good for him. There is only one obvious body-double moment in the movie when he's ice skating; otherwise, that seems to really be him getting knocked all over the place. Chloe Coleman is fantastic. I've never watched Big Little Lies. She's occasionally annoying in the movie, but mostly totally adorable. Kristen Schaal almost always plays a quirky, likable character. She's definitely a highlight in this movie with some of the funniest lines in the cast. Ken Jeong is always a crowd pleaser, although he usually plays super nasty, crass characters in comedies. I'm happy to announce that he was perfectly clean, although it surprised me that e was used more as a straight man, rather than the funny man that he always is. I've been watching him lately on THE MASKED SINGER and he seems like he'd be a fun guy to hang with who genuinely loves to laugh at anything, including himself. Because I love movies so much, I always get a kick out of movies that reference or quote other movies. In this funny flick, there were tons of shout-outs to other films, such as Iron Man 2, Notting Hill, E.T.,The Extra-Terrestrial, Mission: Impossible, Shrek, and Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark I know action sequences in slow motion are super cliche, but I love them anyway. The ones in this movie always got a laugh from the audience. The music choices supported the comedy and were even the focus of some comedic moments. I'm completely obsessed with Alexa, so I love that Dave Bautista had one too. Tons of physical gags that made me laugh out loud like the blinking lesson or when Bobbi started doing bicep curls with her tiny water bottle after watching JJ curl massive water tanks. I always love a good training sequence. A cute twist. I love twists and surprises.

Your typical heart warming comedy-drama, you've seen it all before but still it's ok to watch a film like this sometimes. The cringe moments are possibly the better moments in the film, seeing Dave Bautista dance is a highlight. Haha I could waste time on criticism here but I don't see the point, the film isn't terrible but it's just ok at times. I sort of knew what I was going to see.
