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

Worst "Comedy" I've ever seen..
7 January 2014 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

I had no idea what I was about to watch when my family pulled this out one night and put it on. Safe to say within a half hour it was ejected, and all parties were very glad to pull the cord on it. The concept is Sandra Bullock is the Mcgyver of FBI and meets local deputy "Big Girl", who's only stand on comedy is screaming offensive vulgar at everyone who gets in her way. No plot, no worthy characters, just some swearing and a couple actresses with no compassion. Even if it was Megan Fox or Brooklyn Decker on the screen I would demand my money back. This movie may still be for you, if you appreciate that one girl who was funny in that one movie by screaming and cussing.
