VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) Good fun movie with a decent screenplay.
2) “Anywair” sounds very interesting.
3) Jillian Bell as Trina – this terribly under-rated actress needs a full-length movie in the lead role. I’d even love to watch a spin-off movie featuring Trina as the central character.
4) Fortune Feimster as Lonny, the Uber Driver.

 

 

CONS –
N/A

Airline Concierge: I’m sorry, ma’am. All flights are grounded until the snow clears. There’s nothing more I can do.
Carol Vanstone: Well, refer me to someone who can do something!
Airline Concierge: That would be God, ma’am.
Carol Vanstone: Oh. Her.

The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018)

Verdict – 0/5

 

Pros –
1) Tess post-script monologue is a well-written piece. Sadly, this character neither got a proper execution nor screentime.
2) Final Trapeze fight.

 

Cons –
1) Both lead actors are unfunny. Also, the jokes are without punchlines. The only funny character in this 117 minutes ordeal was the obese Finnish backpacker.
2) The movie just copied the Jude Law plot-twist from Spy (2015).
3) Ivanna Sakhno as Nadedja – token European weirdo villain.
