"[Feig] has made a piece of smash-and-grab policier pulp that, through the interplay of Bullock and McCarthy, spins to its own snarly/confessional feminine beat." -- Grade: B
Total Film - 07/16/2013
"[W]here it does live up to BRIDESMAIDS? towering standards is in its realistic sense of a bumpily blossoming friendship."
Rolling Stone - 07/08/2013
"McCarthy is a force of comic nature. And she and Bullock mix it up like pros."
Director Paul Feig reteams with Melissa McCarthy, the breakout star from BRIDESMAIDS, adding Sandra Bullock to the mix for the action comedy THE HEAT. The story begins when egotistical, ambitious FBI agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock) is promised consideration for a big promotion if she can bring down a drug lord setting up shop in Boston, she's forced to team with loud-mouthed local cop Shannon Mullins (McCarthy). The two hate each other at first sight, but as they dig deeper into the mysterious identity of their prey, they forge an abiding respect and friendship.
