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

Awful Buddy-Cop Picture
29 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

A little Melissa McCarthy goes a long, long, long, LONG way - and unfortunately, she's in 95% of this dreadful movie, "The Heat". Sandra Bullock isn't much better, playing the same fish-out-of-water character from her "Miss Congeniality" series. This movie is all-together boring.

I'm incredibly comfortable with swearing, but McCarthy uses all combinations of the F-word like she has Tourettes syndrome. This film is forged from the lowest-common denominator school of crass, where yelling your lines and using pointless profanity as a punctuation point replaces witty comedic invention. "The Heat" mistakenly assumes that obnoxious, lazy pandering and flop-sweat delivery will ratchet up the laughs, making the picture that much more funnier. It doesn't.

"The Heat" is a wildly-overlong, inert, lifeless, practically laughless crime-comedy. If you can't figure out who the bad guy is, you may not have seen a movie before.

Plus-points for casting Jane Curtin, who is nice to see on screen again, despite having few lines.
