    I loved The Final Girls. That would be my top comedy of the year. Spy is over-rated. Most the movie is just McCarthy and Rose Bryne calling each other names and saying the F word.
    The Final Girls was smart and touching at least.

      I thought Spy was hilarious.

      I liked the Final Girls, it just wasn’t what I expected. I wanted more humor and blood. It seemed like nothing happened for quite a while. It was very touching though, something I did not expect. It almost made me cry, to be honest.

      • Jim222001

        I didn’t get why McCarthy said the F word a million times. Then said throwing out sugar coating curses afterwards lol.
        Which is why I am not looking forward to Ghostbusters. Feig’s idea of funny is women cursing 24/7 or shitting in sinks.

  • Dboy Izaya

  • Foxtale

    How did What We Do In Shadows win when Spy was 0.7% higher adjusted score? Not saying one was better than the other. They were both fantastic.
