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

The best comedy I have seen in years!
1 August 2013 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about two female officers with strong personalities, who have to work together against a drug gang.

The trailer of "The Heat" made me laugh hard, and wow the actual film made me laugh even harder! It's amazing how two strong personalities, one foul mouthed and the other egocentric, could be portrayed to be so likable. That's not an easy job, but they managed it. The film is filled with sharp witted insults and even more profane words, but the jokes does not rely on these at all. In fact there are so many clean jokes that are hilarious, such as three drinks are in fact one, or the interrogation scene that involves a phone book. It's really been many years since a comedy has made me laugh so hard. I laughed so hard that a curled up a few times, and by the end of the film I had a sore throat from laughing! I loved "The Heat", it is a sure fire must watch!
