Description

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.

Synopsis
Director Paul Feig reteams with Melissa McCarthy, the breakout star from BRIDESMAIDS, adding Sandra Bullock to the mix for the action comedy THE HEAT. The story begins when egotistical, ambitious FBI agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock) is promised consideration for a big promotion if she can bring down a drug lord setting up shop in Boston, she's forced to team with loud-mouthed local cop Shannon Mullins (McCarthy). The two hate each other at first sight, but as they dig deeper into the mysterious identity of their prey, they forge an abiding respect and friendship.

3 stars out o 4 -- "Bullock and McCarthy make a phenomenal team. The conversation never stops..."
(28 Jun 2013, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[Feig] has made a piece of smash-and-grab policier pulp that, through the interplay of Bullock and McCarthy, spins to its own snarly/confessional feminine beat." -- Grade: B
Owen Gleiberman (28 Jun 2013, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[THE HEAT] will hit the funny bones of both performers' fan bases..."
Todd McCarthy (27 Jun 2013, )
Los Angeles Times
"McCarthy and Bullock are an odd and oddly likable team. Both actresses are fearless with physical comedy."
Betsy Sharkey (27 Jun 2013, )
Rolling Stone
"McCarthy is a force of comic nature. And she and Bullock mix it up like pros."
Peter Travers (8 Jul 2013, )
Total Film
"[W]here it does live up to BRIDESMAIDS’ towering standards is in its realistic sense of a bumpily blossoming friendship."
Total Film Staff (16 Jul 2013, )
USA Today
3 stars out of 4 -- "It's all about timing and chemistry, which they have in spades."
Claudia Puig (28 Jun 2013, )
Variety
"THE HEAT has been engineered to deliver the laughs, and the result certainly does..."
Peter Debruge (27 Jun 2013, )
