There are some amazing dynamic duo’s in film history. Batman and Robin, Han and Chewbacca, Holmes and Watson, Bonnie and Clyde, and so many more. But as a brand new featurette for The Spy Who Dumped Me claims, Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon might be one of the best. Kunis and McKinnon co-star in the film as two thirty-year-old best friends are thrown into a world of international conspiracy after one of their boyfriends is revealed to be a high-profile CIA agent.
This is classic Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon. For myself, both have been two of the highlights when it comes to women comedies over the past few years, with Kunis leading the Bad Moms franchise and McKinnon making stops in films like Ghostbusters and Office Christmas Party. So to see them come together is not only a treat, but an expected one. They’re at the top of the game right now, it was only a matter of time until they met up.
The one trailer we’ve seen so far has its good moments, I can’t lie about that. While it does feel formulaic at times, I have no doubt that these two can bring some fun times on screen for us later this year. The concept and story alone screams funny, but hopefully the two were given the right kind of direction when performing together. It looks ridiculous enough to be a good time.
Check out the new featurette below and make sure to leave your thoughts in the comments! How have you like the trailers? Are Kunis and mcKinnon a match made in heaven? Also starring Justin Theroux, Gillian Anderson, Hasan Minhaj, Ivanna Sakhno, and Sam Heughan, The Spy Who Dumped Me will be released on August 3rd.
The film tells the story of Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon), thirty-year-old best friends from Los Angeles, who are unexpectedly thrust into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend (Justin Theroux) shows up at her apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. Much to their own surprise, the duo jump into action, and find themselves on the run in Europe from the assassins and a suspiciously charming British agent (Sam Heughan), as they hatch a plan to save the world.
