At The Movies
I saw the new Melissa McCarthy movie Spy today, and if watching people die funny is your idea of a comedy then I’d say this is the movie for you.
It was unexpectedly violent and sexually explicit. The trailers had not prepared us for that. I was disappointed.
When Melissa McCarthy played Sookie on Gilmore Girls fifteen years ago they let her be cute and funny and charming, but in every role since then they’ve made her plain, sad, and crass.
I guess I was hoping they’d let her be sparkly and charming again.
