It’s not often that I’m honestly surprised by the quality of a film, but I’m going to start this review off on a positive note and say The Heat was a pleasantly riotous surprise in the form of a raunchier version of a Rizzoli & Isles type show. I’m not sure why I doubted director Paul Feig after scoring with his female version of The Hangover, Bridesmaids, but none of the trailers for this hard-r buddy-cop picture tickled my fancy in the slightest – even the profanity laced Red Band trailer. But none of that matters now, because I still have yet to locate my ass in the theater since I subsequently laughed it completely off.

If you’ve seen any “rough and tumble local police officer is forced to pair up with a straight-edge Federal Agent” comedy, then you’ll know exactly how this story goes. Sandra Bullock »
