My Spy is another of those incredibly lazy ideas masquerading as a cheap kids film, this time starring Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2) being all large and clumsy in a mismatch comedy where he’s partnered with a tiny, annoying kid.
Naturally, they’ll learn to love each other’s differences and overcome barriers, etc.
Synopsis: A hardened CIA operative finds himself at the mercy of a precocious 9-year-old girl, having been sent undercover to surveil her family.
And it’s a pun on the song ‘My Guy’.
….so, yeah, it IS that movie.
My Spy is released later this year, but neither a UK nor US date is yet known. Please don’t hurry.
