When the boyfriend is taken out, the two ladies head for Europe. (“Would you rather die, never having been to Europe? Or would you rather go to Europe and die?” “Why are those my only choices?”) There they get into one Spy vs Spy hash-up after another until an unfortunately predictable turn of events ends it all.

This is not really as funny as it could have been, but it does have its moments. The fight scenes are well done and the cinematography is pretty good; it is gorgeous when it needs to be. But it gets a bit sillier than it needs to be and that detracts from the plot.

I’ll give this a very mild recommendation; go see it as a matinee and save some buck$. There are some mid-credit scenes, nothing mandatory about them and once they are over, there is nothing but more credits than there needs to be.

Flytrap rating: 6.5/10
