The Heat

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.
