Watch The Heat For Free
Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence--and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins, one of Boston P.D.'s "finest," is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: Buddies.

An unevenly matched buddy-cop comedy that amounts to a feature-length showcase for Melissa McCarthy riffing.
There s a discussion to be had about why this is the only major movie this summer with two women in the lead roles - but it s hard to have a serious discussion when you re laughing.
If you re going to make a dopey, bawdy, foul-mouthed, predictable lady-buddy-cop movie, you might as well make it funny.
It s a buddy-cop comedy that deserves to share a locker room with "The Other Guys" and "21 Jump Street."
"The Heat" would be a fairly ordinary entry in the female buddy cop genre except ... there is no genre yet. Happily, Melissa McCarthy may single-handedly change that.
