Spy

I was a bit disappointed with this movie.  It got a high rating on Rotten Tomatoes but I think that this movie is a classic example where everyone agreed that the movie was good enough to get a positive review even thought it is by no means great.  All of the pieces were there – good concept, great actor (McCarthy is always nails) and a template (Guy Ritchie).  That said…. the movies was just ok.  I think the big problem was the dialog – so many of the exchanges were just poor.  At different times I wished it would be more like Guy Ritchie movies but that just never happened.
