  • Despite excitement for Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon in The Spy Who Dumped Me, the trailer raises doubts about its quality in the action/comedy genre, drawing comparisons to Melissa McCarthy's Spy, and subverting seriousness into feminine satire as Audrey (Kunis) faces heartbreak and moves on.

    Plot

    Audrey Stockton, a 30-year-old grocery store cashier, is unexpectedly thrust into the world of international espionage when she discovers that her ex-boyfriend Drew is a CIA agent. Drew's sudden reappearance in Audrey's life brings with it a host of dangers, as he reveals he's in possession of a highly sought-after piece of intelligence and that various nefarious organizations are hot on his trail. Before Drew can fully disclose the gravity of the situation, he is taken out of the picture, leaving a bewildered Audrey with only cryptic instructions.

    With the help of her best friend Morgan, an aspiring actress with a flair for the dramatic, Audrey embarks on a haphazard venture across Europe to honor Drew's last request. The unassuming duo must navigate their way through a deadly game of spies, not knowing who to trust. As they stumble from one chaotic situation to the next, Audrey and Morgan are forced to rely on their wits and the strength of their friendship while becoming entangled in a nefarious plot with potential global repercussions. Their journey propels them from the cobblestone streets of Prague to the nightlife of Berlin, with assassins and international agents shadowing their every move.
