    Your Opinions and Comments

    9 / 10
    I Spy is a great and funny action movie. When an invisible plane named the Switchblade is stolen from the USA, Alex Scott (Owen Wilson) is signed up to get it back before the new owner in Budapest sells it. He is teamed up on the mission with Kelly Robinson (Eddie Murphy) who is a champion boxer. When they get to Budapest they go through a whole lot of action and funny scenes until the end of the movie. A load of things in this movie are a good laugh! The DVD isn`t bad at all. There is a filmakers commentary and a few featurettes and trailers. This is a great movie and any fan of Eddie Murphy should buy it. 9/10.
