About the Movie

Melissa McCarthy and Oscar Winner Sandra Bullock team up in this outrageously funny comedy from the director of Bridesmaids, Paul Feig. Uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock) and foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins (McCarthy) couldn't be more incompatible. But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected...buddies.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There are only two reasons to see The Heat. But they are formidable reasons, and they go by the names of Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jul 8, 2013

Rotten: There's an edgy but rewarding chemistry between Bullock and McCarthy that makes me wish they were attached to a less foul-tasting premise. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Jun 28, 2013

Fresh: Laughter can be magical. It can also be crass. In the formidable person of Melissa McCarthy it is typically both. And no director seems to know what to do with that tension quite like Paul Feig. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Jun 28, 2013

Fresh: McCarthy's an actress who needs a foil, and for now Bullock is more than good enough. I just wish these two had found each other 10 years ago. – Wesley Morris, Grantland, Jan 6, 2014

Funniest Movie Of 2013

This movie was halarious. This is your averadge buddy cop film and it is predictable but Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock are funny. Defenetly buy this film.

One of the funniest movies i've ever seen

I was expecting The Heat to be funny but not that funny. Boy was I blown away. Sandra and Melissa bring laughs the whole movie. It's got provocative jokes that aren't appropriate but make them funnier all the same. The Heat is about two very different cops who team up to crack a drug case. I can honestly say that The Heat is probably the funniest movie of 2013. It reminded me of a funnier 21 Jump Street exept with two woman. Great movie!


Given the right lead performers, even the most predictable comedy can truly earn the biggest laughs. Case in point: "The Heat," a hilarious, female-driven buddy-action movie that teams up an anarchic Melissa McCarthy with an exasperated Sandra Bullock, whose outrageous interplay enlivens an otherwise unoriginal script. Bullock plays a straight-aarow FBI agent who gets reassigned to work on a case with (who else?) McCarthy, starring as a wild, loose-cannon Boston detective. Together, they must take down a dangerous drug kingpin. Can our heroines put their personal animosity aside long enough to crack the case? Obviously, the best aspect of the entire movie is Bullock and McCarthy's incredible comedic chemistry. Every scene they star in is a laugh riot, and the ruthless banter they share together is terrifically timed. Of course, this means that the rest of the cast is just plain forgettable, seeing as how our two main stars simply seem to overshadow every other actor in their path, although Spoken Reasons does get to stand out in a small but hilarious supporting role as a runaway suspect. That being said, the entire narrative half of this movie doesn't nearly hold up nearly as well as its comedic portions. The plot is essentially just a flimsy framework on which to hang a series of nutty set pieces, and the villain (who's revealed to us in a twist) is pretty disappointing, to say the least. But ultimately, it's the flick's blockbuster-like direction, surprising amounts of in-your-face violence, and gleefully over-the-top brand of comedy that sets it apart from the rest of the films in its already-packed genre. Sure, it's an easily predictable movie with more than its share of mostly obvious clichés, but if you're looking for a goofy good time, "The Heat" definitely has you covered. At the very least, I'd day it's easily worth a rent for Bullock and McCarthy's fantastic performances alone.
