Storyline

Sarah Ashburn, an FBI agent, is extremely ambitious and has her eye on a promotion, but she doesn't get along with her co-workers. She is sent to Boston to uncover the identity of an elusive drug lord, Mr. Larkin, by tracking down his proxy, Rojas, and is told that she'll have a good shot at the promotion if she finds Larkin. When she arrives in Boston, she learns that Larkin has been eliminating his competition and taking over their operations. She learns that Rojas is in Boston PD custody and goes to see him to ask him what he knows about Larkin, but is warned that the cop who arrested Rojas, Shannon Mullins, is very territorial, and she is not exactly sociable. When the two meet they don't get along. When Mullins learns why Ashburn is in Boston, she decides to find Larkin herself. Ashburn is told by her boss to work with Mullins, but it won't be easy because Ashburn does things by the book while Mullins does things her way. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

The picture in Hale's office shows B-52s that are or were located at the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group at Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, AZ. Sometimes referred to as "The Boneyard", it is where many military aircraft are stored until reused or destroyed. There is no obvious reason why the picture is in his office. (The picture is from Wikipedia's entry on the base). See more »

Goofs

The hub cap that fell off was missing when Mullins goes to park after she lost it. It reappears in subsequent shots. See more »

Quotes

Ashburn: [Horn blows twice. A mini-van slowly drives up to Ashburn and Mullins as they are walking on the street. The van's windows are down, and the radio is blasting Boston's "More Than a Feeling" as the driver flips off Mullins] Who is... who is that?
Mullins: My mom.

Great Fun!
26 July 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is just a fun, laugh a minute ride and should not be taken seriously.

Witty, hilarious dialogue, silly scenes and a lot of fun.

There was so much laughter at certain scenes it was hard to hear the dialogue, so you know people are having a fun & happy night out! There were continual laughs throughout due to the witty lines and expert delivery, with some real high points of absolute hilarity.

All those people who gave this movie 1,2 & 3's really need to relax, allow themselves to enjoy a simple silly movie that's not trying to win Oscars, but is simply made to entertain and make people happy. And if they're so concerned with a bit of swearing and mild violence then stick to those serious arty dramas.
