From the desk of The Movie Snob
The Heat (C+). I must say that I patted myself on the back for waiting until this one showed up at the dollar theater before rushing out to see it. It’s a thoroughly predictable buddy-cop movie, with the “twist” that these cop buddies are women! Sandra Bullock (Forces of Nature) plays the tightly wound, by-the-rules cop, and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) plays the free-wheeling, somewhat crazy cop.
Because it is rated R and stars McCarthy, you know there is extreme profanity. It’s too long and predictable, but I still laughed a few times. If you like McCarthy’s shtick, as I do, you should like this movie OK.
