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.
A lazy, incompetent middle school teacher who hates her job, her students, and her co-workers is forced to return to teaching to make enough money for breast implants after her wealthy fiancé dumps her.
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
The Melissa McCarthy character is so! over the top, so! unbelievable and obnoxious it destroyed any chance for this movie. Why would Sandra Bullock sign on to this? I enjoy most Sandra movies but I couldn't make it to 15 minutes in. So glad this was a cheap Tuesday rental. I truly feel sorry for those that paid at the box office. American humour at its' worst! Blunt, in your face stupid and simply not funny! Do your self a huge favour and miss this altogether. Also, for as much of it as I saw, Bullocks character in this is the same as her "pre-makeover" character in Miss Congeniality. A butch FBI agent out on a limb! Sorry Sandra I love most of your stuff but like Speed 2 this is a disaster.
