A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.
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

I was expecting this to be a good movie with Sandra bullock in the lead but was sadly disappointed not sure what she was doing but acting the part was not one of them. Melissa McCarthy was doing the same as she always does if you've seen it in one movie why would you want to see it again in another. when I first turned it off I thought it may of just been the way I was feeling at the time tried to watch it again but no...it was still rubbish. Love Sandra in most movies she does this isn't one of them. Enjoyed Melissa McCarthy in identity theft but as already said seen all before. questioned myself if I was in the mood for comedy watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding and loved every minute of it so using that as a baseline test this movie deserved a 0 not the 1 I gave it
