Long, but still funny, and one of the better spy comedies out there.

The biggest surprise is Jason Statham’s gift for comedy. He’s self-aware enough to get laughs but not so all-knowing that he breaks the fourth wall or tries to get the audience on his side.

Having someone with his crazy intensity be a constant punchline only makes the film funnier, and they were lucky to have him on board.
