Movie Review: The Heat
IMDB Summary: An uptight FBI Special Agent is paired with a foul-mouthed Boston cop to take down a ruthless drug lord.
Review: Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are a comedic dream team. I've loved both of these ladies for a long time, so it was great to see them pair up for a fun comedy that will hopefully show that actresses can hold their own in a comedy!
I saw this yesterday (July 4th) with my mom as the rain was too bad to do much else. Both of us highly enjoyed it! There is a lot of cussing, which I'd wager is the reason the film is rated R, but it's mostly from Mullins (McCarthy) and just shows how different she is from Ashburn (Bullock). Both ladies are essential to the movie and it's great to see how they learn and grow from each other.
They are both great at their respective jobs, but nobody likes to work with them. Putting them together means they have to finally work with a partner who can be just as stubborn as themselves. I loved that Ashburn and Mullins have to deal with people looking down on them as females, as it's something realistic in today's world. Regardless, both women fight back and do their job.
I know that sequels aren't always the best route to go, but I really just want to see these two back on the screen together! I'm sure it would be just as great.
