Movies In Review: The Heat

Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are comic gold! Bullock puts her mark on Ashburn, an uptight FBI agent. McCarthy spins the foul mouthed hardened Mullins, a cop from Boston. Ashburn is given an assignment in Boston and crosses paths with Mullins. Their relationship doesn't start off so well, as you can imagine the hard, foul mouthed Mullins doesn't work well with others and doesn't hesitate to tell Ashburn, and anyone else off. Where Ashburn, through her obsession of getting the job done, and by her terms, is categorized as 'doesn't work well with others'. But maybe, they can work well with each other!
I really enjoyed watching this movie, the chemistry between
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy builds and touches your heart, they make it seem more than just a movie. They are two women fighting for respect within their careers, while they were having a hard time attempting this by themselves, together they become unstoppable.

Overall - if you are a fan of Sandra Bullock's this movie won't disappoint you. It makes the perfect rainy-day trip to your local cinema an enjoyable one. I don't want to say it's a must see or a must go, because I'm always conscious of ticket prices. This could wait until it's available to rent. But, this is a movie that I could watch more than once.
