Synopsis


The Heat
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. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    Paul Feig has become one of the major comedy directors at this time, after one or two failed starts with movies (I Am David and Unaccompanied Minors both flopped, but his TV work his second to none) before striking gold with Bridemaids and continuing his success with The Heat. If you love comedy movies, action movies, buddy movies or just movies in general you will love this film. Sure, it does follow the buddy action formula to a T (Authority figures with different styles, predictable bad guy reveal, etc.) but the humor is so well done and the chemistry and acting by Melissa McCarthy & Sandra Bullock are top notch. Not one to miss at all! The PQ on the DVD is nice looking, with nice details, accurate colors and a nice film grain veneer with the AQ being terrific as well handling the dialogue, music and action extremely well. The extras are fairly nice, headlined with a commentary with director Paul Feig, an intro to the extras, a featurette and some funny outtakes round out the nice amount of extras. If you can spring for it, get the Blu ray, with an unrated cut, 4 extra commentaries, deleted scenes, more outtakes and featurettes, along with a DVD & UV copy. All in all, recommended, no matter which format you choose!

    Nice outing, but nothing groundbreaking

    I got this DVD as a gift for my wife. We liked the previews for it, so we figured that we'd give it a chance. If you're looking for something that's basically for a night of not-so-thought-provoking enjoyment, this is the movie for you. Like other buddy cop movies, you have the mostly rule-breaking "bad" cop (Ms. McCarthy) and the more straight-laced "good cop" (Bullock). One's a beat cop, the other's a fed; their cases end up putting them together to solve a crime. The chemistry between the two women is one of the best things about the movie. While some things are a bit far-fetched and the big bad ended up being fairly cliche, in the end, the buddies were able to come together and understand each other while they caught their person. While it's been done before, their spin on it was often VERY funny.

    To be honest, I didn't expect a lot out of this movie going into it, even with Sandra Bullock. For me, Melissa McCarthy tends to be better (funnier, more tolerable, and less like a run-on sentence) in supportive roles (i.e. Bridesmaids). Surprisingly, and to my shock, I cried laughing to numerous parts of this film, and watched it 3 times in a matter of a week! Sandra Bullock definitely helps level out the movie and the two actors have great chemistry playing off each other. Really, the only reason I didn't give this movie 5 stars is the language... especially in the first half of the movie, Melissa McCarthy's mouth is on a major rampage and seems to be a little much at times. My husband, who really isn't a fan of hers for that reason, still ended up loving this movie as well!

    Great movie, which we have watched a few times, and it has made us laugh like crazy each time, when of course in a silly mood. TWC was offering the movie for free as part of their on demand with our cable package. Glad we already saw the movie prior to TWC, so when we saw it was edited for TV and all the swear word were taken out it made the movie stupid, as that was one of the things which made it so funny. This movie is more for the grownups. I always refer people to IMDB.com for the plot, cast, bios, rating as they have the full description, also with the internet, and streaming devices the trailer is available. Both main characters worked great off each others personalities.

    I typically have low expectations for movies, no matter how great the comedic timing or acting ability of the actors. I was laughing with the first few minutes. Sandra Bullock is wonderfully straight, by-the-book rigid FBI agent. She's reluctantly paired up with Melissa McCarthy, who is wonderful in this character as a no-nonsense, brass Boston detective with a colorful vocabulary. She's hilarious in her first scene busting a john with a working girl. Good female "buddy" movie. So far everyone I know who was seen it has loved it. Lots of laugh-out-loud moments. There is much language but not so much nudity, aside from the occasional female anatomy comment. McCarthy is quickly becoming a favorite actress of mine.

    Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy make a great duo in this throw-back to 80's buddy-cop movies, only this time it's women. Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) directs from a script by Katie Dippold. Bullock is a work-alone FBI agent who must reluctantly team up with a tough-as-nails local cop Shannon Mullins (McCarthy) to solve a case involving a drug-lord who seemingly can't be caught. There are many laugh-out-loud moments and some great action scenes to satisfy just about any one. The blu-ray is packed with features that includes and unrated version of the film and several commentaries (one of which features the Mystery Science Theater 3000 guys). Highly recommend.

    A VERY funny movie that is destined to be one of those comedy staples that is watched over and over or that you put on every time you are surfing and see it listed. Definitely more adult humor...wouldn't recommend for family movie night if you have young ones, but for teen on up it's great. I'm personally pretty tired of the same ol repackaged character for Melissa McCarthy, but this movie is the exception...she's great and it wouldn't be the same without her. And Sandra Bullock, who generally doesn't come to mind for comedy for me, is awesome and the chemistry between the two of them makes the movie. Great watch...again and again!

    I had been wanting to buy this bluray to add it to my collection since it came out. I am extremely frugal so I am always willing to wait for a price drop or a good sale. Best Buy finally had this for a good price so I bought it. Sandra Bullock is probably one of the best and most underrated comedic actresses int the business. She has this sort of deadpan humor that cracks me up!! Melissa McCarthy is just a powerhouse comedian. Perfect timing and great delivery. I also love that she has great physicality. She's great in this film and if you haven't seen it, you should do yourself a favor and go get it today!
