I Spy (Widescreen/Full Screen) (Bilingual)
Frequently Bought Together
Superstar Eddie Murphy (The Nutty Professor) teams up with Owen Wilson (Zoolander, Behind Enemy Lines) for a hilarious, action-packed thrill ride. Famke Janssen (X-Men, GoldenEye) also stars as an ultra-sexy secret agent. A super-powerful experimental spy plane is stolen by an evil arms dealer and is about to be handed over to an international terrorist. The U.S. Government drafts an egotistical boxing star (Murphy) to join a suave special agent (Wilson) on a dangerous top-secret mission to getthe plane back. Armed with the latest high tech gadgets and a whole lot of attitude, this ultimate odd couple might be able to save the world - if they can just get along.

The whole idea of a new technology to make a fighter jet invisible but falling to the hands of terrorist masterminds is quite interesting. In the case of "I Spy" though, the whole concept is completely ruined and pounded down to a bloody pulp by atrocious acting and lack of chemistry by all of the cast.
The story of the movie is of a new technological breakthrough of where a special type of fighter jet is designed to turn invisible. The jet and possibly the technology is stolen by a terrorist mastermind and two bumbling FBI agents named Alex Scott (Owen Wilson) and Kelly Robinson (Eddie Murphy) are assigned on a mission to recover the jet and hunt down the terrorists before they use the jet to deliver a weapon of mass destruction on a major city.
The fact that they try to make the film into a comedy though throws a lot of the potential right out the window and in the case of terrorist movies, making them into comedies ruins their quality and "I Spy" falls into this category. Everyone in the cast fares poorly. Owen Wilson's role as Alex Scott in unconvincing and almost annoying. Wilson has done much better than this! Eddie Murphy's role in this mocie is much more despicable because apart from Dr Doolittles I & II, his movies have gone downhill in quality over the past five years and he reached his all-time low with the abysmal "The Adventures of Pluto Nash" but he improved somewhat with "I Spy" but still misfires anyway. Famke Janssen as Rachel Wright was completely unsexy and the character was almost repulsive in my opinion, looking more like a drugged out hooker on the streets than a special agent gone bad.Read more ›
Kelly Robinson has only agreed to let Alex tag along because the president himself called and personally asked him for this favor. He certainly doesn't want a white boy with no skills hanging around, but Kelly is willing to give it a go if Alex doesn't get in the way. Unfortunately, Alex has a skill for getting in Kelly's way and, before he knows it, Kelly Robinson is off on a wild ride of madcap escapes, zany stunts, high-tech gadgets, unrequited love, and intrigue while he and Alex hunt to find the jet before is it turned into a weapon against the United States. But who can they trust....?
I thought that this was a pretty funny movie, but there is nothing particularly memorable or fabulous about it. Owen Wilson is pretty hilarious at times, though, especially when he is using his "top secret" gadgets that don't even begin to compare with Carlos' (Gary Cole), the top special agent in the country. Eddie Murphy had his funny moments, too, but I find that his humor is more crass and just obvious. The story was pretty predictable, but the movie had some cool stunts and was fast paced. This is a good rental that most of the family will enjoy.
Basically, it's about a special jet that uses state of the art technology to become invisible and is stolen by foreign renegade terrorists and two spies are sent to recover the jet.
The script of this movie is absolutely weak and atrocious to the extent that nothing can save an already unworthy film. Eddie Murphy's character in this movie comes off as being rude, and extremely annoying. Famke Janssen really blew it with a very weak performance. Malcolm McDowell also falls flat on this one and Owen Wilson fares little better. I love all of these actors but the lousy script inhibits any chance of them really beinging forth anything worth watching on this movie.
This movie could really have been great but is totally wasted on weak dialogue and unfunny jokes. They had a chance to really make a good remake but they really blew it with "I Spy".
Avoid this movie. All of the cast have done much better on other movies.
This is just standard popcorn cannon-fodder that was probably filmed and put together in less than a month. Its pure garbage, but it never tries to be anything more than that. If you want to see Murphy cussin' then go watch one of his many adult films again. If you want to see Murphy do some 12 rated stuff then you will find that here. For those looking for Murphy playing to kids then go elsewhere because there is some mild language here with some sexual references but nothing serious.
So if you want to see a "no-brainer put your feet up and have a laugh at actors knowing they are in something that is just stupid as hell" then watch I Spy. It delivers in that department all right.
