  • 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    "McCarthy and Bullock are an odd and oddly likable team. Both actresses are fearless with physical comedy."
    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "It's all about timing and chemistry, which they have in spades."
    USA Today

    3 stars out o 4 -- "Bullock and McCarthy make a phenomenal team. The conversation never stops..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "THE HEAT has been engineered to deliver the laughs, and the result certainly does..."

    "[THE HEAT] will hit the funny bones of both performers' fan bases..."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[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
    Entertainment Weekly

    "McCarthy is a force of comic nature. And she and Bullock mix it up like pros."
    Rolling Stone

    "[W]here it does live up to BRIDESMAIDS towering standards is in its realistic sense of a bumpily blossoming friendship."
