Note: The following text may contain spoilers

SPY is an action comedy about a female CIA analyst who volunteers for an undercover mission to stop an arms dealer from selling a nuclear weapon to terrorists.


A woman is stabbed in the hand during a comic fight sequence, resulting in bloody injury detail; in other fight scenes, heavy blows and kicks are delivered, along with the suggestion of bones being broken. People are shot, resulting in small blood spurts which are visible upon impact.


A character flicks through photographs on a camera screen and briefly sees an erect penis. There is also brief suggestion of a woman performing fellatio, but without strong detail. There are a number of crude verbal references to anal and vaginal sex, pornography and genitalia.


There is a single comic use of very strong language ('c**t'), as well as frequent use of strong language such as 'motherf**ker' and 'f**k'.
