I've fallen asleep watching this enormous waste of time twice and it's still not over.

Total Waste of time .

Such a worst movie with zero acting skills by kate.

There were some really dumb jokes and the plot was obvious, but in general the movie was watchable and entertaining.

I really enjoyed it

Overall, I really enjoyed it and laughed until my sides hurt.

Total waste of time.

This must be one of the worst movies this year....

This has got to be one of the worst movies on this budget I have ever seen what was the director thinking when this was edited the joke were old and not funny we are both actors and work in film and TV and for the money that was spent on this film we could have made 10 films that were 50 times better.

Very entertaining .

Don't waste your time on this one...

Don't waste your money .

If not, don't waste your time.

Indeed, this phrase is probably truer of the film itself in that The Spy Who Dumped Me bites off more than it can chew, ultimately failing in its mission to produce an engaging espionage rib-tickler.

directors are so afraid of offending someone and being panned by one or another religious/racial/interest group that they strip their comedies of any creativity, until it all turns into bland lukewarm porridge.

The plot was weak and predictable.

What a loathsome waste of time this movie is.

I was dragged along to see this movie, and by the end I was glad I went to see it.

Very entertaining and Kat McKinnon is a unicorn .

Mila Kunis saved this film as best as she could and was way more funnier and entertaining (also not a comic) than comedian Kate McKinnon who was stale, annoying and "a little too much".

I'm literally watching it again if it now and super bored .

If you're looking for an enjoyable flick for Friday night, this is it.

Don't waste your money .

This movie is entertaining with lots of action scenes and funny situations.

some jokes just okay but overall pretty entertaining.

My main criticism is that it dragged on too long, and I finally turned it off with about 20 minutes left, not caring how everything finally resolved.

This film tells the story of two women who are dragged in an international situation because the boyfriend is a spy.

Seeing this so soon after Mission: Impossible - Fallout, The Spy Who Dumped Me presented an enjoyable lighter comedic contrast into the spy world.

Fans of Kunis and McKinnon, and of the genre, should find it an enjoyable time in the movie theater.

One time it's fast and few moments after real slow with some unnecessary long stretched scenes and weak edits.

So boring !!.

Action packed adventure .

Enjoyed it for what it was!

2) Everything that Kate McKinnon is in is tainted with feminist propaganda.

Therefore, THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME is an entertaining cautionary tale about the dangers of NOT being reasonably armed.

The movie is super entertaining.

Such waste of time.

Boring and nothing new .

Fun, funny, exciting.

Maybe more like predictable and unbelievable.

Worst movie of the summer .

The first half part of the movie is definitely stronger in most aspects, but still very enjoyable.

A poor spy spoof that tries far too hard to be funny without managing to be and as such, ends up boring.

Those scenes just slow things down.

A plot so ridiculous, having to suspend logic time and time again gets tiresome.

Surprisingly Action Packed: The movie may just seem like a giant farce of spy thrillers.

I enjoyed it and plan to watch it again tomorrow to try and figure out the hate...

This movie sucks, it goes way too long and tries to do too many things for a simple plot movies.

The director thought of keeping too much twist in plot, but it's always predictable.

I felt that the story didn't really work, it was very predictable and uninspired.

I was bored through all of it.

It was entertaining and was not to be taken seriously.

This was funny and I enjoyed it all.

worst movie than i expected.

Despite being on the longish side the plot stays tight and engaging.

But expect for poor jokes and poor timing, this was a fun and fast-paced movie that was very entertaining.

It does a good job of mixing moments of quite inspired wit with some other more puerile stuff and the banter between the two leads is quite snappy, as is the exchanges between the actual spies.

The action is exciting & gory, and there are a few good twists, as you'd expect from a spy flick.

Yet, there are a few plot points that were boring, or full of holes that didn't quite impress me.

Highly enjoyable .

The film has the right amount of action, contains boringly typical European location choices for an American film, and good laughs.

However, despite this (and its criminally bad title), I actually enjoyed it to a surprising degree.

Saw it in an otherwise empty theater with the wife, that was 2 people too many .

This movie, though, was predictable.

Boring .

Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon lead this boring comedy film that is quite forgettable.

But the film does have some funny moments and many of them come from the frequent riffing of McKinnon who is just a non-stop spark of energy who fires off snappy comments no matter if facing a psychotic gymnast or in a high-speed chase.

I fell asleep and then eventually gave up.

Derivative drivel of a waste of time.

Just a 90 minutes exercise in how to waste a lot of money funding a few actresses world tour -- do not recommend ...

What a waste of my time.

The Spy Who Dumped Me is a highly entertaining film.

Just boring.

This is going down on my list of top five worst movies I've ever seen.

Waste time and money .

Absolutely bland and boring humor.

The nonsensical plot jumps through a variety of European cities which provides some good settings, but the gags always fall flat, making it all seem pointless.

Entertaining despite that one thing...

This movie is a totall waste of time.

But it was entertaining and we had at lot of good laughs.

Don't waste your time.

Pointless drivel .

It's the worst movie of 2018 even worst than Darkness mind ...

Enjoyed it and the actors complimented each other well.

It's very funny, exciting and has some great action scenes.

Mila Kunis is as boring as Meg, from family guy, it is just boring.

It is generally quite silly and benign but has some really fast paced, high octane action sequences (expect the odd burning and neck-snapping).

I found it funny and engaging.

Not once did I come across a laugh out loud moment or even a chuckle, it was all so predictable.

Enjoyable movie which gets sparked off when the said spy played by Justin Theroux gives his ex-girlfriend Audrey a package for her to look after.

Super entertaining .

Total failure: boring, daft and pretensious film, not worth to spend time or money on it.

And this one is, for most scenes, entertaining.

TSWDM is fun, exciting, and charming.

Action packed and very funny!.

The movie that bored me .

Like said before, it's bad that these two comediennes are supposed to anchor a comedy action spy thriller (all descriptive words used lightly) but the most compelling thing about the movie is the action that's...

Wonder how they dragged asuch a great actress into this.

This film wasn't funny, and the plot was extremely thin and predictable.

Save Your Money.

I barely chuckled a couple of times but it is still entertaining.

I really enjoyed it and would buy it on Blu-Ray.

Waste of money and time ...

I got bored after half an hour already, because there are a trillion flashbacks that kept going back and forth in the story, back and forth, back and forth.

I can accept a mediocre story or some not very well described characters in such a movie, as far as it manages to be entertaining or even funny.

Way too long not that funny.

Frenetic, nasty, stupid and pointless .

Even the boredom of a 11 hour flight didn't make me finish this .

A fun and thrilling ride with a little something in it for everyone .

Either way, you should at least watch it if you're bored one day.

Worst movie I've seen for a long time .

The movie was boring an 1 hour too long, at times I have fallen asleep.

While it's not a masterpiece by any means, it's actually a very fun and entertaining action-comedy that surpassed my expectations.

The outcome is a confusing tone that manages to only partially fulfil its many ambitions.

Worst movie ever!!!

Cute comedy and action packed!

Though the narrative takes a number of turns that are expected and - at this point - clichéd and does start to wear thin eventually, the experience is usually an entertaining one throughout.

The plot is very cliché and predictable sadly and it's fine when a movie knows what it is and doesn't try to be anything else.

I guess it was still entertaining and I could recommend it to people who just like to watch random action movies.

I agree with other posters that I wanted to turn it off by 30 minutes.

A lot of repetitive action that is forgettable.

Really basic action-comedy movie but really predictable and not worth it's money.

They are extremely entertaining together.

I still enjoyed it despite its flaws.

Complete Waste of Time .

If you're bored and you have nothing better to do switch it on in the background!

It was entertaining visually interesting faan funny acting was to perier.

It was boring movie.

It was a waste of time and money.

the movie sucked It broke me so much It was so bad, predictable and cliched The acting sucked I chuckled....

Kate McKinnon is a queen of physical and mental comedy, it was a fast paced comedy that threw a bunch of "oh-my-gosh-wait-what-just-happened" moments amidst some broader twists and turns.

The violence in the movie was too intense for a comedy; or even a spoof on spy films.

Probably the worst movie I have watched in the last couple of years.

But no, the show followed a single predictable trajectory and made it physically hurt to watch it at times (cause I kept wincing or grimacing).

I personally enjoy a mindless action flick, but this was just flat out annoying and boring.

A Crazy Dumb Exciting Spy Action Comedy inspired by Snowden Incident .

It's funny, engaging and surprisingly has some really great action scenes.

In the end the twists of this movie made the plot have to many holes and difficult to follow on who the good and bad guys were.

This is a boring movie a not funny movie and way to long...

The plot is not interesting, the dialogue is dull and not at all funny (unless you consider the obligatory vomiting scenes and toilet humor funny) and the acting is so so.

The jokes and humor are dull and boring.

There's a lot of affectionate chemistry between co-leads Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon, who make an impressively engaging pair as they navigate an international spy plot.

Still, the movie has some balancing to do, primarily in trying to make an engaging storyline even though they have been shared with the rest of the group.

I wouldn't say this is hilarious but it is definitely entertaining.

Funny and entertaining .

I will admit the story didn't quite go the way I was expecting, but that's not a bad thing, there are a good number of sequences filled with high-pace chases and guns blazing that are exciting, and the jokes are witty enough and work fairly well, all together it a fun action comedy.

It just gets more boring and at the end you don't even care about the main characters and what is gonna happen to them.

Definitely worth watching .

Worst movie I've ever seen.

Funny and entertaining .

Not just the comedy works, it's also surprisingly well-filmed, with intense and very brutal action sequences.

Bored 20 minutes in and wAnted to leave.

enjoyable ride .

I almost walked becuase it had cheesy dialogue, predictable plot, lame scenes, lack of substance to sustain any genre.

I see that some mean spirited reviewers saying worst movie 2018/ever.

The action is surprisingly well filmed and extremely enjoyable.

Horrible gun and murder propaganda .

This movie is a complete waste of time (thank god I didn't have to pay to watch it).

Don't waste your time on it.

I'am watching now the movie there is a lot of action and drama between two cute girls but there's no story this is the problem

I was literally on the edge of my seat with anticipation during the car chase scene.

The story moved too slow and back stories were not built well enough for everyone other than Audrey and Morgan.

Really Fun Movie - If You Can Ignore the Propaganda .

Sure, there are a couple of twists and turns which can be predictable.

Right from the beginning the scenes are jarring and hard to follow and lent more to thoughts of alright let's get this over with instead of enjoying what was happening.

Enjoyable if you're bored and have nothing else to watch.

With performance of mila lived this movie more, entertaining me, and i love, love a spy mix comedy genre.

Her character's tendency for saying whatever's on her mind, no matter how weird or badly timed it may be, makes the jokes more unpredictable, and you laugh at her ballsy nature and impulsiveness.

I love Mila but this movie is a waste of time.

'The Spy Who Dumped Me' bites off more than it can chew, ultimately failing in its mission to produce an engaging espionage rib-tickler.

Lame, Predictable, Bad Acting Don't waste your time nor money.

Dony waste ur time.

Funny and action packed .

Even going in I expected it to be silly/stupid, but expected it to at least be funny/entertaining.

The action scenes are intense, immersive and surprisingly brutal.

Kate McKinnon was good the way she is in an absurd SNL sketch- Mila, just looked stunning, boobs and skinny legs- is that enough.

Sometimes you've got to review the really bad ones to make sure people don't waste their time, and hopefully the people that make these terrible films get the net!!

My friend Rashad was right that the film is incredibly entertaining, and the leading ladies bring much of that success alongside talented dialogue writers.

Literally so boring

But her wish for an existence that's a little more exciting suddenly comes true - she discovers her ex is actually a spy, assassins are after him, and it's going to fall to her to complete his secret mission.

Terrible cliche .

This has to be one of the worst movies ever.

don't waste your time .

There were two things about it, either too predictable (I could predict some events throughout), or way unimportant and boring.

Sorry but it was everything too predictable.

What a giant waste of time.

Maybe it's hilarious if you think the last few years of SNL have been consistently hilarious, but for everyone else it's obvious, unfunny and boring.

The reason this is two stars and not one, the story is mildly entertaining.

This movie is worth watching and having a fun time doing so.

Some of the twists were kind of predictable, others you never see coming.

It has a boring plot, which although seems to start in the right way, is rapidly falls into ridiculous and forgettable, throwing most interest out the window.

It is way too long and definetly should have been at least half hour shorter.

this had to be the WORST movie ever to come out of that company ...

The plot was a complete boredom.

Please dont waste your time with this garbage movie.

Few minutes after watching i realized this is going to be a complete waste of time.

That the best thing I could say about this attempted buddy-spy-spoof that is all shouting, cliche and non-stop movement.

Laughed during the chase scene otherwise it was dull and extremely boring.

Everyone looked so bland!

Yes, it was well worth watching.

After that, the movie is stuffed with "jokes" and "funny stuff" which is flat, shallow and completely predictable.

There is absolutely no story line and it seems the whole purpose of the movie is to cater to the female empowerment crowd.. At the expense of everything else.

Dull movie .

It is an absolute waste of time.

One of the worst movies I've seen so far.

I highly recommend it.

The movie was predictable from the get go.

The fundamental failure to persuade the viewer that they were in an intimate relationship gives the story a rather dreary conviction throughout.

But, at times the film would take itself a little bit too seriously and would kill off the enjoyment and came off as bland and boring.

The Spy Who Dumped Me has very few scenes that involve our characters doing nothing, leading to a well-paced movie that keeps you immersed in all the shenanigans at hand.

Her boyfriend, Drew (Theroux), has just dumped her and she's moping about it, complaining to Morgan, her best friend, and trying to keep others from finding out her life is now empty.

' It was very entertaining as a classic spy joke movie.

With the laughs trickling in without every flowing freely, Dumped in-turn tends to rely more on its narrative to drive it home but the actual tale of a sought after USB being chased down by a collection of good and bad guys is highly uninteresting, while the underdeveloped relationship between Kunis's Audrey and Justin Theroux's ex-boyfriend/spy that sets this story in motion is too underdeveloped to matter, meaning the only enjoyment we get from proceedings are the infrequent comedic gold moments from Kunis and McKinnon that aren't as commonplace as needed for a film of this ilk.

Despite a two-hour running time, the movie doesn't feel overstuffed, as it goes from exciting set piece to exciting set piece, and while it's never exactly laugh-out-oud funny it's still entertaining from beginning to end.

Frankly I find it absurd to rate a solid, entertaining, popcorn movie with 1 or 2 stars.

If you want to see bad acting, worst script ever, and waste your time, than this is movie for you.

They couldve cut out half the beginning which was slow & several other scenes.

Then it became apparent that it wasn't funny, thrilling, suspenseful, or even interesting.

I have a limitless card I watch every movie that comes to my cinema with my girlfriend and this was the 1st time we both got up and walked out before the end!

Apart from some good fight scenes which do not last for more than 5 mins, the movie is unbearable to watch.

I fell asleep halfway through the movie due to it's boring plotline,

This movie is a terrible cliche spy movie.

but as a waste of time, with no harm, it's OK.

This movie is funny and interesting and truly enjoyable.

I was bored save for the funny lines from Mc Kinnon.. Don't waste your time nor money on this lame film.

Wouldn't have cared if it was funny, but it really was boring.

Other than that, a comedy that wasn't funny, filled with conventional car chases, gratuitous violence, a non-existent plot and bad acting by Kate McKinnon in over the top performance that made one cringe.

It blends many entertaining elements together, and it is a great film to watch and relax to.

I like Mila Kunis, and find her performances generally entertaining.

Unlike the cliche on MI, this one is much more funny and unpredictable.

The plot is boring and the jokes are not all that funny.

A great enjoyable "dumb" comedy movie .

It is unfortunate that the couple's background is shown through a series of rather dull flashbacks, thus giving their rapport very little time to truly flesh out.

Don't waste your time.

This movie, about two best friends who are thrown into the deep end of the spy-spoof pool, was entertaining, funny, had a good cast, but it was way too long and if I see Justin Theroux, I am positive he will be playing a villain.

I feel bad because I love both Mia and Kate but movie had to many slow scenes.

To cheesy and predictable.

Lots of laughter in the audience and at the same time very gripping.

One can almost see "coked-up Suits" sitting at a Mahogany table applauding a pitch from a meth-addicted director, who recommends the "ideal" blow girls to strap on this script and carry it like a satchel-charge into American movie theaters (which thankfully will be empty).

But her wish for an existence that's a little more exciting suddenly comes true - she discovers her ex is actually a spy, assassins are after him, and it's going to fall to her to complete his secret mission.

It's also predictable, linear and although presents a twist towards the end, it fails to deliver something good.

Enjoyable.

Don't waste your money or 2 hours of your life.

Not an Oscar contender for sure, but after reading reviews on IMDb I was expecting the worst movie ever, and I had to make myself watch it.

But their talent is wasted on tedious roles with a boring script that does not give them anything new to work with.

Most jokes fall flat, the music was bland, and the cinematography left a lot to be desired.
