Host your own Summer Spies Night In Party #SpiesNightIn #SPYInsiders @FHEinsiders #sp

The laugh out loud comedy of the year is now out on Digital HD and SD.  Call up your friends and family and have a SPY themed party! This weekend I hosted a viewing party.  My mission for the party was be to become Susan Cooper herself with her cat T-shirt and gray wig and  have friends and family dress their own 'spy gear' as a fun alias!

Each guest received a few 'survival' items to keep in a handbag for on-the-go missions -- just like Susan Cooper receives for her missions! In the survival kits they will each get a special flashlight and phone charger for emergencies and a five-in-one whistle perfect for any jam a wannabe spy might find herself in!

We used super cute Secret Agent Favor Boxes and filled them with goodies. There is also a place to write every  agent’s name or their alias on the top to personalize the experience.

A spy themed tablecloth was also a must. This plastic tablecloth will gave my agents a place to eat their munchies and solve the case without blowing their cover!

To assist my have friends and family to  dress in  their own 'spy gear' as a fun alias, I set up a prop station, so those who did not have gear, could get into their role.   I would transform into Susan Cooper myself.  I had issues getting my wig to look right, so I looked more like Don King!   My husband said he could not take me seriously with the cat shirt!


No party is complete without munchies.  I hosted this party after the dinner hour, so instead of a meal, I went with the perfect movie munchies, your sweets, sours and of course buttery popcorn!  Then whatever was leftover the guests could add to their goodie boxes and take home!  I am in love with the Kernel Seasoning for popcorn, so it was a must to share with my guests!


We watched this move on Digital HD via iTunes. I love being able to watch digital movies, it is so convenient! Apple has a market on iProducts, so the only way to watch a movie one would think is with and Apple TV or on your iPad. Nope, not the case, my hubby bought and Apple AV cord and a HDMI cord and he plugged the iPad right into the TV! Instant movie and the quality was AMAZING!
Purchase Spy on digital over at Amazon for $14.99 (HD or SD)

Some of the best movie quotes:
  • Thank God your hair broke your fall.
  • He is like a dog who gets lost from his yard...humping and sh**ting everywhere.
  • Guys...there is a mouse on my tits.
  • I look like someone's homophobic aunt!
  • Susan give up your dreams. My mother used to put that in my lunch box.
  • Just blend in. Let someone else win...Motherly advice
This is not a kid friendly movie, just getting it out there (R rated), so send the littles to bed and get ready to laugh non-stop.  Spy is a great comedy, in the opening credits you get a spoof of the James Bond intro and the references don't stop there.   Melissa McCarthy stars as Susan Cooper, a desk bound CIA analyst who is sent into the field when all  the other agents are compromised.  She wants to avenge her crush's death and stop the villain (Rose Bryne) from selling a Nuclear Weapon.  Not everyone is a fan of Susan being in the field and one such spy named Ford (Jason Statham) lets that be know and leaved the CIA.  I have only every seen him as a serious action hero, so it was funny to watch him in a comedy.

There is swearing (f-bombs galore), blood, fight scenes, death, sophomoric humor,etc., but is is an absolutely hilarious movie!

About the movie:
Queen of Comedy Melissa McCarthy “in her funniest movie yet” (Leonard Maltin, LeonardMaltin.com) embarks on the mission of a lifetime as secret agent Susan Cooper in SPY. The September 29th Blu-ray release will include two versions of the film - Theatrical and never-before-seen Unrated Cut.  The DVD will feature the Theatrical version.  Both the Theatrical version and Unrated Cut of Spy will also be available on Digital HD September 4th. The global ensemble cast features Jason Statham, Jude Law and Rose Byrne who deliver hysterical performances in this summer blockbuster hit that totaled over $100 million in the domestic box office. The movie was adored by critics who gave it an astounding 95% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com.
                                                   
McCarthy is armed and hilarious in this “outrageously entertaining” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) comedy hit from director Paul Feig (The Heat, Bridesmaids). Deskbound CIA analyst Susan Cooper (McCarthy) is about to become the world’s newest — and unlikeliest — secret weapon. When her partner (Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Statham) is compromised, Susan volunteers to go deep undercover and bring down a deadly arms dealer. Loaded with wise-cracking action and adventure, SPY is a mission impossible to resist!

Unlike Susan’s absurd yet effective secret agent gadgets, the SPY Unrated Blu-ray can barely conceal its massive amounts of bonus features, including two gag reels, fifteen alternate scenes and an all-new Unrated Cut with an extra 10 minutes! With more than two hours of never-before-seen footage, fans of the film will be able to join the fun on set as the cast cracks up while doing Feig’s bidding, learn just how handsy the world of espionage can get for McCarthy, and see just how all those bats made it into the CIA Headquarters and onto Susan’s desserts! And don’t forget to check out the 15 classified alternate scenes and three redacted scenes, featuring Jason Statham as you’ve never seen him and outrageous performances by the rest of the cast, including Miranda Hart, Allison Janney, Bobby Cannavale, Peter Serafinowicz, and 50 Cent. Fans can also join the filmmakers, including Feig and producer Jessie Henderson, as they talk about how the summer’s funniest film came to life while you watch it.
