Hello SISters, how are you?
I have a secret to tell you. Top Secret. So please, shhhhh, don’t tell anyone.
I already watched The Spy Who Dumped Me.
Since TSWDM only premiéres in Brazil TODAY, I know, you might be asking yourself: SISter, did you go to the premiére?
So, do you live abroad?
Also, no, I watched here in Salvador, Brazil. And no, it wasn’t over the internet either.
So, HOW DID YOU WATCHED THE MOVIE?
Well, let’s start from the beginning, let me introduce myself: my name is Laís Monteiro. Nice to meet you!
I am the crazy girl who takes care of SIS’s twitter account, I’m also The Girl in Skates, but besides several other things I do – that you can read here – I also write movie critics to another blog, called O Clube da Meia Noite.
To write the critics, I usually go to the press booth, so that the review is published before the movie premieres and I was one of the privileged ones this time, so I saw before everyone else in Brazil.
Knowing that, the girls asked me to talk a little bit about what I thought about the movie by answering some question.
As mission given is mission accomplished, here we go!
First of all: is the movie funny?
Too much fun, with good characters, excellent dialogs and unusual situations.
The Spy Who Dumped Me is part of a new series of comedy movies that dares to mix with the action genre and it was very good on scenes that blended entertaining dialogue with good chase scenes, shots and explosions.
The best thing on this movie is the chemistry between Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon, that really makes us feel like they’re best friends forever, despite being the first time that they share the big screen.
Kate is, without a doubt, the funniest and most memorable Morgan (her character), an optimistic feminist, able to help her life sister under any circumstances.
Mila does very well too, after all we’re talking about Mila Kunis, yet Kate stands out for her sense of humor, improvisation and because she’s a great comedian.
The most negative aspects of the film are very punctual, although they don’t even come close to spoiling the plot. One example is Justin Theroux’s character, who acts only as a conduit, with nothing to add.
Besides this, the movie has merely forgettable antagonists, which you only remember they exists when they’re on the scene, a sometimes predictable script, that helps with the relationship of its protagonists, but misses a bit with its supporting.
Calm down, none of this takes the shine out of a movie meant to enhance friendship relationships, life purposes, and good adventures.
Okay, everything is very beautiful, Laís…
BUT WHAT ABOUT SAM HEUGHAN?
How was our Carrot Cake with chocolate frosting?
So… he actually did very well!
Is it weird to watch him doing comedy? IT IS!
Is it bad? Not at all! Let’s just say it’s different.
Sam interprets Sebastian, a character who has nothing of Jamie Fraser besides being good of fight.
He doesn’t have much chemistry with Hasan Minhaj, the actor who plays his partner on MI6, but it’s not his fault, it’s the script that doesn’t helps them very much.
He also doesn’t have much chemistry with Mila – you’ll know what I mean when you watch it – but, believe it or not, when he’s with her, the scenes are smooth, they work well and have an excellent timing.
About the beauty of this man, I would like to warn you: YOU ARE NOT READY FOR THIS MOVIE. In fact, I think it is totally appropriate to take an oxygen balloon, because every time he shows up, it is unavoidable to lose breath.
The Spy Who Dumped Me is an extremely entertaining movie that appeals to several audiences, made for any genre and gives you the feeling of lightness at the end of the session.
Girls, take your husbands, fiancés, boyfriends and crushes.
They will have as much fun as you – do not sigh too loud, to avoid a fight later.
Don’t forget to send us pictures, we’re gonna love to see and to post them!
Good movie for you!
