My Spy is not exactly the film that sets the world alight. It is a classic family movie made by all the canons of the genre. Former WWE superstar Dave Bautista followed in the footsteps of Dwayne Johnson as a major movie star, playing in action comedy films among others.

Bautista portrays JJ, a CIA operative caught on camera by a precocious girl while on a covert surveillance mission. She then blackmails him into befriending her and even teaching her how to be a spy. Is My Spy worth watching? While it is not exactly the best spy movie, it is definitely fun to watch with your family, especially in these uncertain times when we need to keep our spirits up.
