There’s a particular Onion article that I refer back to constantly. It’s titled “Female Friends Spend Raucous Night Validating The Living Shit Out Of Each Other,” and it makes me laugh every time I think about it because, as with all great jokes, it’s funny because it’s based in some nugget of truth.

The Spy Who Dumped Me manages to get at a similar fundamental truth. It’s a little long, and there are some bits that are fairly obviously punch-up, but its portrayal of female friendship as something empowering and good rather than a punchline is (while not as rare as it used to be) touching to see. Though the movie’s plot, as suggested by its title, treads spy thriller territory as filtered through a rom-com/buddy comedy lens, when you boil it down to its basic parts, it’s a film about a woman helping her best friend get over a break-up. As ridiculous as it may get, it still feels true.
