An extremely premature movie
Though now I live in the US, I was born in Hungary, saw the changes the
country went through and know at least the very basics that most
everyone knows about this old and beautiful country - except the idiot
"director" of the movie I Spy. I understand that she's way too old to
make movies to begin with and especially old to get at least a little
tiny bit close to what you'd call true representation. She must still
live in the 60s when Hungary used to be quite different than in the
last 20 years.
I mean, come on.... it's not only unfair to use 30-35 years old (!)
police cars in the movie that takes place in 2002 but showing the
population of the country as if 95% of it was even older the the
"director" (over 90 years old) and as if all Hungarians were smelly
jerks who don't shave their armpits is simple premature, moronic, and
above anything: extraordinarily amateurish. Not that the rest of the
movie is great - it's not. The acting isn't bad but the dumb, dumb
script and the entire production quality (incl. action sequences
footage, visual fxs, not-original music and especially the location
sound) are awful, match the up-to-dateness of the 35 y.o. police car.
Really, really low-key. Just like our pathetic "director".
ps please, if Betty Thomas or her representation reads this email,
email me at email@example.com I work in the film industry on a
pretty high level, and would be very interested in talking to you about
this movie. I mean, there must be something that I don't get...

Very funny, a must watch for all Eddy Murphy fans.
When a high tech fighter plane's stolen, the U.S. government believe that an arms dealer named Gundars has it and plans to sell it. So they send Alexander Scott to retrieve it. Now Scott though well-trained, is a little inexperienced and spends most of his time pining after another (female) agent. Now his superiors tell him that the best way for them to get close to Gundars is; Kelly Robinson, an egotistical and cocky boxer, who has a fight that's scheduled to take place in the city that Gundars has the plane, and Gundars is a fan of his. While the operation seems to go well, Kelly's cockiness gets them in trouble. .
An unfairly bashed, but still routine pop action/comedy.
We all know Eddie Murphy's classic scene in "48 Hours" when he sings
The Police's "Roxanne" off key. Now about 20 years after, in this movie
he sings Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" on key! While the scene he did
so in "I Spy" was amusing, it was not what the 48 Hrs scene was. So
let's face facts, Eddie ain't what he used to be.
He once again parodies himself in a role, albeit in a lesser way than
in "Bowfinger" and "Showtime". I don't care much for Owen Wilson, but
he actually plays off Eddie well as a straight man. The two have decent
on-screen chemistry. If this movie did a little more business, these
two could talk sequel.
As for the movie, there are actually funny scenes, where Wilson's
character Alex is given second-hand spy gadgets; Kelly Robinson teases
his boxing opponent in a pre-fight; a plane dive to coerce Kelly into
working. Plenty to go around. The action scenes are not bad, with the
exception of the silly balloon sequence. That part should have been
rewritten. And of course, I cannot neglect Famke Jannsen in her
It would have been better if "I Spy" had copied the more serious,
realistic and dramatic TV series of the same name. Alas, it is much
like soda, acceptable only because the vastly superior "48 Hrs" exists
to wash its pasty aftertaste out of our mouths..
