In many ways, Spy feels like the perfect culmination for Feig and McCarthy, fusing together body language and sarcasm in the most male of genres. Here, they’ve reconfigured the globetrotting spy thriller it into a smart, proactive, and endearing deconstruction of what femininity looks like in the modern world. It’s a Bond spoof that’s often better than the real thing.

The film makes a point of featuring women in the kind of key roles (sidekick, villain, a steely CIA boss) they rarely get a sniff at. What’s most pleasing is to see Spy turning its fish-out-of-water tale into one about self-actualisation. Rather than a Spikes Like Us style trail of bumbling, its theme is female empowerment, competence overcoming lack of confidence. McCarthy’s talent for fearless physical comedy, freewheeling improv and motor-mouth rants pulls the film along like a locomotive.

It’s quite funny, though perhaps not as funny as it could be. One small annoyance is writer-director Paul Feig’s penchant for ugly, gratuitous detail designed to earn his film an ‘R’ rating, often viewed as a selling-point for a comedy. Spy is peppered with startlingly lurid moments: a man’s throat dissolves, another is impaled on a spike, there’s vomit and swearing and glimpses of a tumescent penis. None of it feels essential to what’s really just a breezy Bond parody.
