Thank you STX Entertainment for inviting us to the family day to celebrate My Spy movie
A couple of weekends ago, my son and I went to Los Angeles to attend the family day for My Spy movie. We had the opportunity to screen the movie. Keep reading for our spoiler free review.
About the movie
Nine-year-old Sophie catches JJ, a hardened CIA operative, spying on her family during a routine surveillance operation. In exchange for not blowing his cover, JJ begrudgingly agrees to show the precocious girl how to become a spy. What at first seems like an easy task soon turns into a battle of wits as Sophie proves you don't need much experience to outsmart a seasoned agent

My Spy movie family day in Los Angeles
STX held a family day in Los Angeles to celebrate the upcoming movie My Spy. It was a very fun afternoon with some cool photo opportunities and even a Tik Tok activation. We had some food and time to network with friends before it was time to screen the movie
Did we like it?
Let me start saying that there is a reason this movie is PG-13, so please leave the little ones at home. Now with that in mind this movie is clever on the jokes and uses "adult" language just in the best way it can be used, considering the girl in the movie is only 9 years old.
I wasn't sure I was going to like it. I saw the trailers and didn't really expect much of the movie. Once the movie started it was very entertaining and kept me entertained for the whole 1 hour and 42 minutes. It was a bit predictable at times, but funny enough for that not to bother me.
My 15 year old thought the movie was funny and better than he was expecting it to be. Dave Bautista character is funny, but for me the best in the movie was Kristen Schaal, her character was so funny, she really stole the show, in my opinion.
