'The Heat' is a 2013 released movie directed by Paul Feig who also directed the super hit movie 'Bridesmaids'.As far as i know 'The Heat' the only third female-buddy-cop-movie made in Hollywood.And i chose the illustrated-looking-poster(above) of this movie to put here because it is the best poster i could find.Now lets get into our review without spoilers.
This is the story of an uptight FBI special agent(Sandra Bullock) who always do her work without any partners and now is forced to work with a foul-mouthed Boston cop(Melissa McCarthy) to take down a ruthless drug lord.Will they succeed?..Is the foul-mouthed cop really a cop?..Is the FBI agent really works for FBI?..Well, you have to watch the movie to know that.
I watched this movie because i was impressed by it's trailer and i know Melissa McCarthy is a rising star.Talking about performances,Sandra Bullock as the matured stubborn FBI agent Sarah Ashburn and Melissa McCarthy as officer Shannon Mullins rocks in this movie.If you liked Melissa McCarthy in 'Bridesmaids' and 'Identity Theft',you will love her in this one too.The movie has a different type of sense of humor.There are tongue-in-cheek (watch out for this one) moments and there are hilarious ones.It also has a pinch of emotion and action thrown in.In my suggestion, it is worth a watch.This is a light comedy movie which you can enjoy watching it with your friends and have a good time.As i have already mentioned in the first paragraph,it is just the third female-buddy cop-movie ever produced by hollywood.And it is the only movie in those three which was successful.That might be the reason, the makers already announced a sequel which might have a release date on 2014 or 2015.You can find the unrated version of 'The Heat' here or you can watch it online here.
