Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Though ample time is spent mingling Murphy's jabberjaw locutions and Wilson's curveball spaciness, the film leaves only the bitter reek of a botched chemistry experiment."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"The trappings of I Spy are so familiar you might as well be watching a rerun."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"TV classic remade as a forgettable buddy movie."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Murphy and Wilson seem to be having a contest to see who can be more obnoxious and, sadly, it's too close to call."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"Thomas demonstrates zero feel for either the material or milieu."
‑ Rick Kisonak, Film Threat
"I really resent a movie like this that just looks like it's made by a committee when you have two such huge talents wasted like this."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Moves at a glacial pace."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Serves up the expected gags and set pieces in service of a thoroughly been-there, done-that plot line."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Credit to Murphy and Wilson for making the most of it, but for Thomas it's a case of must spy harder."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"For the most part, I Spy was an amusing lark that will probably rank as one of Murphy's better performances in one of his lesser-praised movies."
‑ Matt Easterbrook, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Unexceptional espionage comedy."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Banal and predictable."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"A ótima química entre Eddie Murphy e Owen Wilson rende bons momentos."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"It's easy to watch trash, and although Murphy and his co-stars deserve better, it would be wrong for me to lie to you and say that I was bored."
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
"It's disposable dumb fun. And there's nothing wrong with that."
‑ Nev Pierce, BBC.com
