Looking for a fun Family Movie Night – IN?
My Spy, the action comedy starring Dave Bautista is finally coming out! Do you remember seeing the trailers and billboards for its theatrical release back in February? Well, starting Friday, June 26….you can watch the movie in the comfort of your home – exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
My Spy follows JJ a hardened CIA operative (Dave Bautista) who has been demoted and finds himself at the mercy of a precocious 9-year-old girl, named Sophie (Chloe Coleman) where he has been sent undercover begrudgingly to surveil her family. When Sophie discovers hidden cameras in her apartment, she uses her tech savviness to locate where the surveillance operation is set. In exchange for not blowing JJ’s cover Sophie convinces him to spend time with her and teach her to be a spy. Despite his reluctance JJ finds he is no match for Sophie’s disarming charm and wit.
The hilarious actioner is directed by Peter Segal from a script penned by Jon and Erich Hoeber and stars Dave Bautista, Chloe Coleman, Kristen Schaal, Parisa Fitz-Henley and Ken Jeong. Producers are Chris Bender, Peter Segal, Jake Weiner, Robert Simonds, Gigi Pritzker, Dave Bautista and Jonathan Meisner.
Runtime: 101 minutes Rated: PG-13
We had the opportunity to screen the film back in late February…and we also got to meet the two stars of the film: Chloe Coleman and Dave Bautista!
My Spy is full of action with lots of funny and witty scenes. Chloe Coleman and Dave Bautista have great chemistry together…made me wish I had a friend teaching me how to become a spy, growing-up. LOL.
FYI parents, there is a good amount of violence in the film with explosions and shoot outs. As well as bad-language throughout the movie. But like most films geared towards kids and adults – there’s a heartfelt ending with a positive message.
Overall the movie makes a fun family movie night-in! I do recommend watching the film with kids that are around Caiden’s age (9), if they’re okay with a little violence and understand that its just a film. Ronan (4 at the time) simply lost interested because he was too young to understand the plot.
Let me know what you think about the movie.
