When hardened CIA agent JJ is tasked with surveillance, he finds himself striking a bargain with nine-year-old Chloe, agreeing to teach her to be a spy if she doesn't reveal who he is. My Spy is a funny and watchable family movie!

A quirky and cute action comedy, My Spy was originally supposed to have a cinema release. However, the pandemic meant a quick change in plans and it was then distributed by Amazon Prime worldwide.

Starring Dave Bautista, the movie follows JJ, a hardened CIA operative, who blows a huge mission and is demoted to a surveillance job.

Spending his time alongside techie Bobbi (Kristen Schaal) this is as far from the action he is used to.


Instead, his job is to now watch Kate (Parisa Fitz-Henley) and her daughter Sophie (Chloe Coleman).

Having recently returned from Paris, Kate used to be married to a bit of a gangster and the CIA are now after his brother, Marquez.

CIA agent JJ and Bobbi have moved into the same building and wired up Kate's apartment with hidden cameras and all is running smoothly until Sophie catches them out.

In exchange for not blowing JJ's cover, he agrees to teach Sophie how to be a spy as long as she keeps quiet.

Sophie on the other hand decides that JJ would be a great fit for her mum and tries to get the two together. And of course, things do not go according to plan.

The villainous Marquez discovers Kate is back and tracks her down to get information from her putting everybody in danger, including Sophie. So can JJ and Bobbi stop him and restore their CIA reputations?

Is My Spy Worth Watching?

No prizes for guessing that My Spy has a neatly wrapped up happy ending. It is a family film after all.

And while it won't win any awards, it's definitely a good laugh with Chloe Coleman stealing every scene she's in.

It could have been a bit shorter and did feel like it was dragging on a bit, especially in the scenes where JJ and Kate are attempting to date. So that also affected the pacing, slowing things down unnecessarily.

My Spy plugs Dave Bautista into the usual story arch where the man becomes the friend and protector of the girl (think Tooth Fairy) but it's sweet watching them interact.

There are a few twists and turns, a bit of action, and lots of laughs. So if it's a pretty entertaining family movie you're after then give My Spy a shot.

Is My Spy Available On Netflix?

Currently, if you want to watch My Spy you can for free if you have an Amazon Prime subscription.

The good news is that from June 6th 2022, you can watch the film on Netflix UK.

If you live outside of the UK you will have to check the Netflix listings in your local region.
