Running time: 120 mins

A CIA underling is sent into the field, when all of the available agents are outed, to track down a nuclear weapon before it can be sold.

There is no excuse for a movie being this funny; there were times when I snorted water out of my nose. McCarthy is phenomenal as is Miranda Hart and Jason Statham turns in a hilarious performance as a “super-spy” going rogue. Plenty of action laughs and some surprisingly suspenseful moments keep this movie moving right along.

This is the best comedy I’ve seen this year and maybe the best movie. Leave the kids unless you want them to learn some new phrases. There is a hilarious post-credit scene.

Flytrap rating: 9/10
