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.

Originally, Melissa McCarthy was unable to do the film due to overlapping commitments for Identity Thief (2013) and Mike & Molly (2010). However, the day after the former wrapped filming, McCarthy commuted to Los Angeles and Massachusetts, enabling her to do both. See more »

A fairly typical buddy cop comedy, but it's enjoyable and has plenty of laughs. Sandra Bullock plays a straight-laced, unlikable FBI agent who comes to Boston for a major drug investigation and pairs up with antagonistic tough gal police detective Melissa McCarthy. The value of a film like this lies entirely with the leads, and Bullock and McCarthy both deliver. Bullock is a talented comedian who almost never gets to show it in a watchable film. McCarthy, fresh off her hit Identity Thief, proves once again to be a talented physical comedienne (as does Bullock, actually), but what should never go unmentioned when talking about her is that she's a wonderful ad-libber. Almost everything she says is hilarious. The rest of the cast is fine, and the film in particular shines whenever they go to the well of McCarthy's loud-mouth Irish family (which includes Jane Curtin), who have a black velvet painting of Jesus hitting a home run at Fenway Park on their kitchen wall. The plot is, of course, rote, and it's probably not a film I'll be thinking about an hour after I've seen it, but it provided a pretty good time at the movies.
