It has grossed over $65 million and received mixed reviews from critics, who questioned the film’s intended genre and tone but praised the performances.

On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 49% based on 174 reviews, with an average rating of 5.3/10. The website’s critical consensus reads, “The Spy Who Dumped Me isn’t the funniest or most inventive spy comedy, but Kate McKinnon remains as compulsively watchable as ever.” On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 52 out of 100, based on 43 critics, indicating “mixed or average reviews”. Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of “B” on an A+ to F scale, while PostTrak reported filmgoers gave it 3 out of 5 stars.
Variety’s Owen Gleiberman praised McKinnon’s performance but criticized the film for favoring violence over comedy, writing, “The Spy Who Dumped Me is no debacle, but it’s an over-the-top and weirdly combustible entertainment, a movie that can’t seem to decide whether it wants to be a light comedy caper or a top-heavy exercise in B-movie mega-violence.” Barbara VanDenburgh of The Arizona Republic called the film “a tonally incongruous, plodding and graphically violent comedy” and gave the film 2 out of 5 stars.
