About this Film

In crime comedy 'The Heat', two loner law enforcers form an unlikely partnership to bring a drug baron to justice.

'The Heat' is directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids).

McCarthy and Bullock on the beat

A brittle but brilliant FBI agent is thrown together with a boorish, foul-mouthed street cop to bring down a ruthless drug lord. After initially clashing, the mismatched pair begin to develop a mutual respect and, ultimately, a friendship. Sound familiar?

You bet it does - so far, so 21 Jump Street, so Lethal Weapon, so Dragnet...

Yet this time round, it's the girls' turn to step onto the ever-revolving buddy-cop merry-go-round and far be it for Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy to deviate fromthe formula one iota.

So, with expectations of originality flung from the window of a speeding car, it's down to the two leads to charm their way through the clichés. They half manage it....

Cried with laugher, laughed aloud in the Odeon as did everyone else. The chemistry between Sandra Bullock an Melissa McCarthy was incredible. Loved it. Definitely will be purchasing it.

Miss Congeniality meets bridesmaids

Reviewer: *****7Date: 2013-08-18

It first comes across as your typical detective movie plot. It is, but the comedy from both leading actresses makes you laugh out loud constantly. It failed to bore me like some predictable comic movie plots these days. Classic Sandra bullock humour never gets old.. McCarthy whom of which I found funny in Bridesmaids was actually even funnier in this. It just made such a nice atmosphere in the cinema, always making everyone laugh. Would definitely recommend! Watch it!
