I have looked for this movie for decades!

I wonder if Russell read any of the books before she attempted to portray Emily Pollifax.

It was okay, was not as funny and interesting as the book was.

I love the Mrs. Pollifax series. However, this movie was mediocre. It was sort of based on the first book. Enough so that I could predict what would happen next. Some of the key elements that make Emily Pollifax special (like her crazy hats) were left out. I found Rosalund Russell to be oddly awkward in the role. I wonder if Russell read any of the books before she attempted to portray Emily Pollifax. The movie isn't awful, it is just disappointing since there was great material.

It was okay, was not as funny and interesting as the book was. They left some parts out, including the man in book that they call the Genie. I saw the movie on tv with Angela Lansbury ( Murder She Wrote) playing Mrs. Pollifax, and I enjoyed how she portrayed the character much better than Rosalind Russell however, in that movie they tried to combine a couple Mrs. Pollifax books which did not work in my opinion.

Mrs. Pollifax Spy is the movie version of the book "The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax". It does follow the book closely with a few minor changes. It is a clean, entertaining spy movie. If there were more in the series, I would definitely get them.

I have looked for this movie for decades! It was well acted, awesome locations, and more complete than on TV. How wonderful to be able to download it to my Kindle and watch it anywhere!

About time that this movie was finally released.I have been waiting for this movie to be released for years and now it has.Now I'm waiting for the one with Angela Lansbury The unexpected Mrs Polifax from 1999 to be released.Love both but must admit I love Angela Lansbury's version more because she was perfect as Emily Polifax.

Did not think Rosalind Russell could be Mrs Pollifax but the story was just like the book and after a couple minutes into the movie all I saw was Mrs Pollifax. Loved it
