Spy, 2015 - ★★★

Ridiculous but fun. The spotlight on sexism and sizeism was mostly (but not always) spot on. While much of the plot was completely unbelievable, the central premise - that an overlooked woman would make a perfect spy because she is essentially invisible - was logical. In fact, why aren’t all spies (say) post-menopausal women?

Jason Statham annoyed the heck out of me, but Miranda Hart was as adorable as ever, Peter Serafinowicz was hilarious, and I enjoyed the scenes between both of them and Melissa.
