TV & FILM

Female-driven comedies are all the rage now during the summer as studios have finally caught on to the notion that, gasp, women go to the movies too! Hot on the heels of the all-star antics of Ocean's 8 comes The Spy Who Dumped Me, a new comedy from writer/director Susanna Fogel, who made the criminally underrated comedy Life Partners.
Mila Kunis stars as a woman who discovers that her ex-boyfriend (Justin Theroux) is actually a James Bond-esque secret agent, and winds up mixed up in a bunch of international intrigue alongside her best friend Kate McKinnon. It's a pretty decent premise, and both Kunis and McKinnon have proven themselves adept with high concept comedies in the past, so there's the possibility this could be an enjoyable summer popcorn flick.
Part of me almost wishes that Theroux were reprising his character from The Last Jedi, and they just went ahead and set this thing in the Star Wars universe. That would be a hoot, though it wouldn't do anything to assuage the claims that Star Wars has an agenda beyond telling rip-roaring space yarns. Check out two more TV spots for the film below to prep for The Spy Who Dumped Me's release on August 3.
