The Heat

Critics Consensus

The Heat is predictable, but Melissa McCarthy is reliably funny and Sandra Bullock proves a capable foil.

Audience Reviews for The Heat

    I was expecting this McCarthy-Bullock flick to be a raunchy farce, but it's actually a pretty solid buddy-cop movie about friendship, ethics, and redemption.

    I enjoyed this more than I thought I would regardless of how silly it was. Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are some of the best comedians in the business and they gel really well together in "The Heat."

    An outrageously funny and ridiculously enjoyable good time. A fast, frequently funny and very entertaining buddy comedy. Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are a sensational comic duo. They work surprisingly well together and deliver some great lines of dialogue and big laughs. McCarthy of course steals the show with her comic charisma.

    Funny stuff! I got a lot of chuckles from this unlikely duo. Sandra Bullock is ALWAYS entertaining, even when the script isn't. Melissa McCarthay is a freaking hoot in this!. She really didn't have to drop the F-bomb nearly as much as she did, but it didn't seem to bother me as much as some other movies. Guess I was going along for the fun ride that it was...
