Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence--and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy), one of Boston P.D.’s “finest,” is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. From Paul Feig, the director of Bridesmaids.
Hysterical is perhaps the best word to describe the clashing of policing styles when by-the-book FBI agent Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) and volatile Boston police officer Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) are forced to work together on a complicated drug case. Two strong-spirited women in a field populated by men, both officers have some serious attitude, are generally disliked by their fellow officers, and have a definite problem working with others. When the two are thrown together on a drug case, they immediately detest one another and a war of words begins and quickly turns nasty, and physical. But forced to continue working together, the two women soon discover that even though their methods couldn't be more different, they can get significant results by joining forces. The Heat is funny--laugh-out-loud, split-your-pants, can't-possibly-be-anything-funnier-coming-next funny. The audacity of Mullins with her crass mouth and brash actions is impossible to overstate, and the contrast with Ashburn's prim and proper demeanour and language is hysterical, thanks to good writing and a genuine comedic chemistry between Bullock and McCarthy. Sure, the plot isn't particularly new and the film lags slightly in the middle, but The Heat is one really funny film. --Tami Horiuchi

Melissa McCarthy plays Mullins. She is a street smart Boston cop with her own way of doing things. She has a potty mouth and even arrested her own brother to the dismay of her zoo family.
Circumstances forces these polar opposites to work on a drug case in Boston with formulaic results.
Melissa McCarthy was simply hilarious, stealing scenes from Bullock on a grand larceny scale. The humor at times is slapstick and other times crude, but always funny. I had to laugh out loud just watching Melissa get out of her car. It was a marvelous performance. The plot of the story proved to be immaterial as I waited for the next gem to flow the mouths of Bullock and McCarthy.
This is a comedy worth owning.
Parental Guide: many F-bombs. No sex or nudity. Bullock in bra. Sex talk.
Mullins comes from a big Boston family whose members are no longer speaking to Mullins because she put her own brother in jail. Mullins' own mother played by Jane Curtin, slows down the car as she drives past Mullins, holding up her middle finger. Crazy family, yes siree!
Their new case brings them together, finding and fighting the bad guys. Lots of violence and cuteness mixed together. Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy have chemistry together, the good and the bad, the funny and the not funny at all, the beautiful and the not so beautiful. They work it out, and make this a great female buddy film. Melissa McCarthy is one of the best comedic actors around, she can do no wrong.

Sandra plays the ambitious, arrogant, straight arrow FBI agent with a chip on her shoulder. In fact her straight faced play by the rules attitude just seemed to make Melissa's slapstick, scruffy, foul mouthed playing by her own rules badass cop that much funnier.
After closing more cases than anyone else, Bullock thinks she would be a shoe in to be promoted in place of her soon to be promoted boss. She is told the main reason she is not going to get the job is because all her co-worker hate her (nobody hates their boss right?). Anyway the only way she is going to be able to show she should get the job is by showing people she can not only solve the case nobody else could but also that she can co-operate with others. So of course fate pairs her up with McCarthy who is just as alienated in her department because everyone else is scared of her. What follows is an explosive, funny, movie with many twists and twists and turns, albino cops, comedy, pretty boy drug lords, sadist enforcers, comedy, obligatory drunken night of girl bonding, and did I mention comedy. One of the funniest movies I have seen this year.

Typical American unfunny comedy. A downward step for Ms. Bullock. Swearing is funny ? No . Silly criminals are funny ? No. Hate each other at the start - best buddies at the end. Read morePublished 2 days ago by M. jackson
