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

Ah. Ah. I don't - I don't feel it. I don't feel it.
[laughs hysterically while raising Ashburn's arm]
Keep it up!

I can't understand why anyone would give this movie a good review. The Police Academy movies were just complete nonsense from start to finish but this movie attempts to be smart and knowing and not ridiculous. The plot is nonsense and the development of the characters is poor. The very idea that the police force would be prepared to tolerate Melissa's character is unbelievable. She is foul-mouthed, aggressive and violent. In her very first five minutes she breaks about a dozen laws. She would be dismissed in minutes and probably jailed for her behavior. As an officer, she is supposed to able to stand up in court but no judge would put up with her attitude and any lawyer would have her testimony in shreds. It was a truly awful movie but worse for me than the movie, is the thought that other people thought it was original and witty.
