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

just awesome.
9 August 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

There were gags from beginning to end and the movie got funnier as it went on. McCarthy finally puts in a great performance, she is hilarious and her crazy goes brilliantly with Bullocks sensibility. One of my favourite things about this film is the fact that they understand its a comedic take on a police/fed story the reason for this being important being that the film doesn't loose itself, you invest in the characters that are really well played out and unlike other movies in this niche the ending leaves you happy with the movie instead of feeling like something is missing or it ended too soon or it was just badly written.

All in all a great movie I hope they put pen to paper and get another done because I would definitely go watch that.
