The Heat is the story of a cocky, tightly wound FBI agent played by Sandra Bullock who partners up with her complete opposite – a foul-mouthed, inner city Boston cop played by Melissa McCarthy – to bring down a drug smuggling ring. It’s a comedy, so don’t be expecting anything too serious with this one. Melissa McCarthy was pretty funny and I almost always like Sandra Bullock - I thought they made a good team once they both let their guards down and worked together. There was a LOT of language - F-bombs almost every other word - literally! There were also some really funny scenes, though, too. It was TOTALLY unrealistic and ridiculous in a lot of ways. Depending on what mood you're in, it was also VERY rude, crude, obnoxious and not a classic movie by any means. I must have been in the mood for that, because I did enjoy it! Doesn't really feel like I should have, but you need a movie like that sometimes that isn't just completely all around stupid, and walks the line right on the edge of being that way, but not quite!
