This and Kingsman were movies that I was desperate to watch, I must say I loved them both, hopefully this will start a new wave of James Bond inspired comedies. Funny from start to finish, I absolutely loved it, it felt similar to Kingsman if I'm being honest,
The most random moment of all was seeing that Ukranian Eurovision song contest entry from a few years back, never thought I'd ever be seeing that again!
Melissa McCarthy has ridiculously good comic timing, she is naturally funny, and her genius is put to great use in this film, a truly hilarious woman, she manages to be funny and totally lovable too. Miranda Hart was an unexpected treat, very funny, adding a different slant to the humour as Nancy. Jason Statham was utterly brilliant, he always plays the same type of character, wonderful to see him sending himself up.
Just a fun movie you can watch and re-watch. 8/10
