CIA analyst Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is the voice inside Agent Bradley Fine’s head. She assists Fine (Jude Law) with intel while keeping her crush for him secret. When Fine is put out of commission by an attractive arms dealer (Rose Byrne), Cooper goes undercover to prove her skills and avenge her hero. Life in the field gets pretty rough. Looks like a job for ClearPlay.
ClearPlay In Action!
Cleaning up Spy and its very R-rated content may seem like a mission impossible, but Agent ClearPlay has been well trained...Call it Operation: Better Movie. The operative cuts more than 200 profanities (nearly 100 F-words), crude discussions, excessive bloodshed, many gross-out bodily functions, and at least two brief photos of aroused genitalia. One character swears so much, ClearPlay almost helps him become a silent film star. Because of some thematic implications, even the ClearPlayed version is best for mature teens and above.
Will watching Spy be a Double--Oh Mistake ?...
Writer-director Paul Feig and cohort McCarthy are hilarious, but it’s a shame the movie feels the necessity to devolve into offensive content as consistently as it does. One of McCarthy’s best, once you eliminate the blood, rodent feces, vomit, and non-stop swearing.
