To answer the question I posted above: It sure seems like it. Our own Drew McWeeny loved “Spy,” the new Melissa McCarthy espionage comedy directed by “Bridesmaids”/”The Heat”/”Freaks and Geeks” guru Paul Feig, and told us it giddily plays on “Mission: Impossible”-type tropes while giving McCarthy and costars Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, and Jude Law plenty to chew on. Apparently Jason Statham is funny. Are you clutching your face in awe yet?
Check out the trailer below. “Spy” premiered at SXSW but opens nationwide June 15.
