Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India (TOI):

Every once in a while, there comes along a spy movie that straddles the line between not taking itself too seriously and not floundering in a soup of slapstick send-ups. Spy, with its female protagonist who looks and behaves like anything but a spy (seriously!) not only carries

Mid-Day:

Paul Feig was the unsung hero of the late ‘90s – he was responsible for the hilarious short-lived TV show ‘Freaks and Geeks’ and then went on to direct some of the funniest episodes of ‘The Office’. The world finally got to know of him when he delivered the outrageously funny

The Indian Express:

The actress who shot to instant limelight with Feig’s The Bridesmaids — despite being the fourth wheel — is again at her swearing, fighting, kicking best here, letting it all hang out as a CIA desk person who finds herself out in the field. That field includes the

Rediff:

Spy isn’t a bad film. But it’s only half a good one, says Paloma Sharma. Oh boy. This one’s going to be difficult. Paul Feig, brilliant director of equally brilliant films such as Bad Teacher, Bridesmaids and The Heat, tries his hand at action for a change with the Melissa McCarthy-Jason Statham starrer Spy
