Jeffrey's Review of The Heat

    The Heat

    The Heat (2013)

    Predictable, easy and formulaic, "The Heat" at least does it well. The trailers don't do the comedy justice as my low expectations were surprisingly exceeded. It isn't "Citizen Kane," but neither is it meant to be. It's an adorable comedy with a well-arranged story. Frankly, McCarthy and Bullock are better than this, but they add weight to what would be less with most other actresses. I could have done without the requisite dance-in-a-bar routine, but at least it wasn't full of those kind of scenes. For an afternoon of laughs, it was pretty good.
