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

Trivia

The killer viciously annihilating someone and then cracking their neck afterwards is a cliche that has been done in many many movies before. It happens here again when Larkin knocks out Mullins, cracks his neck and then sets in on her brother Tony. The Joker also cracks his neck after killing several opponents in The Dark Knight; Brad Pitt cracks his neck after a vicious fight in Fight Club; George Clooney cracks his neck before a vicious Vampire fight in From Dusk Till Dawn; and Bruce Lee does it several times after dispatching someone in his movies. In fact there's a whole YouTube Video dedicated to vicious assassins cracking their neck which can be viewed online. See more »

Please Do A Heat 2
29 April 2020 | by noonieblountSee all my reviews

Sandra and Melissa have such an amazing chemistry! It's like they are just natural when it comes to working together. Of course this movie had some of the wall scenes and over the top moments but what do you expect from Melissa McCarthy. I enjoyed the movie and it was extremely funny and family-oriented and what is definitely needed during this Covid-19 pandemic time......many laughs.
