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.
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
Ashburn's yearbook is Sandra Bullock's actual 1982 yearbook from Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia. The art department digitally manipulated Bullock's picture to include glasses and braces, neither of which she had in her original high school senior portrait. They also took out all the signatures within the book. See more »

Female comedies are the only movies that really make me laugh. This movie was funny as hell. Sandra Bullock and Melissas chemistry together was great. Melissa should do more movies because she hits all the right spots. Sandra did good as well. She is a very versatile actress. Looking forward to seeing her in Gravity. Hopefully the sequel to this lives up to the original. Looking forward to seeing these two work together again. I love Sandra. She also did a wonderful job in The Blind Side. That movie was very touching. It made me think about how not all races are what we think they are and that we do have some people in the world who are not bias and care for each other regardless of skin color. Sandra will get another Oscar one day I'm sure. I Love her.
