He brings them to meet his boss in Paris, where they once again tell the C. Her best friend and roommate, Morgan, convinces her to burn Drew's things and sends him a text as a heads up. Audrey tries to get Morgan to swallow the flash drive. Morgan begs her for a job as a spy. Audrey claims not to have heard from Drew and is allowed to go home. The Spy Who Dumped Me is, after all, trying earnestly to be about half a dozen different things: a buddy comedy, a spy drama, a raunch fest, a thrilling action film.
Audrey Mila Kunis and Morgan Kate McKinnon , two thirty-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, are thrust unexpectedly into an international conspiracy when Audrey's ex-boyfriend shows up at their apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. They are rescued by their hostel roommate, who thinks they are being robbed and body slams Duffer to his death. I just went along with it. Everyone played their parts alright, especially Kate McKinnon who is hilarious and Sam Heughan who I'm a big fan of. So perhaps there is a teachable lesson here for film students. The two of them track down bad guys that are all lovely porn starlets: Elsa Jean and Honey Gold, with tall and mysterious Alex Harper also a key cast member.
Meanwhile, Audrey goes to meet her mysterious contact and finds Drew, still alive. Sebastian is attacked and Morgan is confronted by Nadejda on an acrobat swing, eventually killing her by throwing her onto the nearby set. While on the phone, Morgan receives a call from Sebastian's boss telling him he is off suspension. The sex is routine but drawn-out, as director Allan likes to deliver half-hour long hump scenes in the modern manner designed for individual streaming. Audrey confesses that she hid the drive in her vagina. He promises to return and asks Audrey not to burn his things in the meantime.
For the film buff in me putting porn aside for the moment it plays like a parody of dull action movies, namely including all the dullness of real life or continuity for that matter from a film editor's point-of-view that Hitchcock explained one should omit. Morgan calls her parents, who tell her they can stay in Prague with Roger, a family friend. After Drew tries to attack Audrey, Audrey kicks him in the crotch, then he falls to the ground when Morgan throws a cannonball at him. When Sebastian is unable to decrypt the information, Morgan calls - who had a crush on her in summer camp - and he helps them hack the drive. A year later, while celebrating Audrey's birthday in , her party is revealed to be a ruse. She is forced into a van.
When that fails, Audrey tells their captors that she flushed it down the toilet. Meanwhile, Sebastian and Audrey share a kiss. The women are given tickets back to America, and Sebastian is placed on leave. Audrey reveals that she still has Drew's trophy since she switched it with one of several decoys they purchased. As far as the plot goes, well it's a bit far-fetched but that's expected in comedies nowadays, these odd plots somehow work. Sebastian later gives Morgan his untraceable phone so she can call her parents to tell them she is alive. Inside, the man identifies himself as Sebastian Henshaw and states that Drew works for the C.
Audrey and Morgan are there on assignment with Sebastian to stop a group of Japanese gangsters. Drew then shoots Sebastian, and Audrey pretends to be glad before grabbing Drew's gun. Audrey and Morgan flee, chased by men on motorcycles. None of these occur here. I'm accustomed to watching these type of comedies so I judge them according to what they are, essentially. People begin shooting at them and Drew tells Audrey that, if anything happens to him, she must go to a certain café in and turn over the trophy to his contact.
Drew is then apparently murdered by a man Morgan had previously met at the bar, who is then pushed off the balcony by Morgan. Unbeknownst to Audrey, Drew is a government agent being pursued by men trying to kill him. I expected fun and laughs and that's exactly what I got. Drew is arrested, and Audrey, Morgan, and Sebastian walk away. Audrey answers Duffer's phone when it rings and agrees to sell the drive at a private party in.
. Needless to say, they bring any forward motion of the story to a halt. At the café, Sebastian appears and demands the trophy at gunpoint. At her job, Audrey flirts with a man who asks her to walk him to his car. Just another negative by-product of the recent slide of Adult Cinema into gonzo land.
Morgan convinces Audrey to go to Vienna. The ending and tying up of loose plot threads is so disappointing I'm sure my jaw literally dropped during the final uneventful reel - you gotta see it to believe it. Surprising even themselves, the duo jump into action, on the run throughout Europe from assassins and a suspicious-but-charming British agent, as they hatch a plan to save the world. Drew acts suspiciously and goes through her purse to find the flash drive. Johnny Oleksinski of opined it was nice to see McKinnon used properly in a film, and that Kunis was the ideal straight woman, calling the two a smart match. If Jay were auditioning for a mainstream gig, even directing a Z-level low-budget movie, he would be laughed out of the room.
