"Spy" with Melissa McCarthy

...is better than the trailers indicate. Really, it's "Never Never Affair" updated with more raunchy dialogue, a bigger budget and international locations. McCarthy's Susan Cooper starts out as office support and slowly but surely evolves into a competent field agent, much like Mandy.

It's fascinating and insightful in addressing the relationships between and among the women characters too, both good and evil.

Loved this movie. Passes the Bechdel test with flying colors, too.
