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

Alright, ladies, here's the DNA results from the book of matches and the cigarette butt you got from Tatiana's. We pulled two sets of prints. First one's a real nut job. Look at this: reckless driving, assault, arson...

Yes, this movie was painful to watch. Mostly because I laughed so hard, I snorted an alcoholic beverage through my nose. Do you know how much that burns? I was in tears for ten minutes after that. Had to go back and rewind the movie. I can't remember laughing so hard, mostly at Melissa McCarthy who gets the best lines. Sandra Bullock is a perfect partner for Melissa in a semi-miss-congeniality-FBI-agent roll. It's not a perfect movie- there a few predictable plot lines and Jane Curtain is WAY underutilized. But the chemistry between McCathy and Bullock is great. With a team of good writers they could easily pump out another three or four of these and I would gladly fork over my hard earned cash to see them.
