What we know

The fab Melissa McCarthy plays a woman who works for the CIA – but at a desk. Then she gets to actually become a spy herself… written by the ace Paul Feig.

What the critics say

  • ‘Quite apart from being a raucously funny comedy, it could be the most significant feminist film of the year.’ - BBC
  • ‘The plot doesn’t make a hell of a lot of sense, but in that it is merely being faithful to its source material – innumerable spy flicks down the ages’. - The Guardian

What we know

Philip (Jason Schwartzman) has his second novel due out soon, but his life is going a bit crap. He’s no nice guy himself.

What the critics say

  • “Many, no doubt, will be inclined to take Listen Up Philip as a thinly veiled personal confession from a director still somewhat at odds with his own small-scale success.” - Film Comment
  • ““Philip” won’t curry much favor with those critics and auds who routinely castigate the Coen brothers and Noah Baumbach for their dearth of “likable” characters, but those with slightly more jaundiced eyes will feel right at home. “ - Variety
