Tonight I saw The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. Sandra Bullock plays a socially awkward, by the book FBI agent named Sarah Ashburn who is sent on assignment to Boston to bring down a big time drug king pin in order to secure a promotion. She is forced to partner with Melissa McCarthy's charter Shannon Mullins who is an out of the box (waaaayyyyy out of the fucking box) Boston cop. Lots of shooting, bad language, laughs and family dysfunction follow.
The Heat was FUCKING hysterical. I am using all the bag language in honor of the movie and well to tell the truth I like to cuss I just save it for real life. I just didn't feel I could review it with out throwing in a few. Melissa McCarthy is a comic genius. Now I know a lot of her lines were probably scripted but her delivery is the shit! But as funny as Mellisa is Sandra Bullock is THE perfect straight man to Melissa's insanity. I have not honestly laughed that hard in a movie since Bridesmaids. I was laughing so hard at one point I was crying. Ivy and I agreed it was one of the best movies we've seen in a very long time!! Oh and for those of you other 30 somethings out there like me you will enjoy a cameo by Joey McIntyre of New Kids on the Block!!
