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

A comedy film that actually makes you laugh
22 November 2017 | by clark_clanSee all my reviews

It's not original to say that Sandra Bullock is a fine actress that picks awful films to appear in - well not this time. This well written slick film had my wife and I laughing out loud whilst watch it, a winner for Bullock. Having said that the real star of the film is Melissa McCarthy and her character Mullins - believable and unbelievable in equal measure Mullins is the perfect foil for Ashburn with wonderful verbal and physical interplay. Watch it, you won't be disappointed.
