Editorial Reviews

Oscarr Winner Sandra Bullock* and Oscarr Nominee Melissa McCarthy** 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely hilarious, from beginning to end. August 2, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
One thing I hate about female-driven comedy is the oft-sub par material that women have to work with. The punchline is always something tasteless or stale - like age, body image or gender roles. For some reason, the misogynistic question of whether or not women are funny is still a topic of hot debate. Kristen Wiig's "Bridesmaids" should have been enough to shut these guys up once and for all, but alas, it was not.

"The Heat" reunites "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy, who, after 15 years in show business, was finally recognized as the star that she is, after the release of that film, which earned her an Academy Award nomination. Since then, McCarthy has been one busy gal - on her time off from filming her sitcom "Mike & Molly," this married mother of two has been filming movies left and right. She's a box office sure thing - the critically panned "Identity Thief" scored $135 million at the box office, and "The Heat", originally planned for an April 2013 release, was moved to the more profitable and lucrative summer movie season by 20th Century Fox, when the film played astoundingly well to test audiences.

And it was worth the wait. "The Heat" isn't very original, thematically or plot-wise. It's a buddy-cop movie, and it's "The Odd Couple," with women, but it's also so much more than that, and here's why. It's funny. It works. The chemistry between the two leads is exuberant enough to make the two lead characters instantly likable.

"The Heat" follows Sarah Ashburn (Bullock), an uptight and straitlaced FBI special agent who is sent to Boston to take down a notorious drug lord, with the possibility of a big promotion, should she do her job well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest comedy in years! Absolutely a Must See July 6, 2013
Sandra Bullock plays a brilliant, but arrogant FBI agent, and Melissa McCarthy plays a very rough, loner detective. They're thrown together on a case and have to adjust to working with each other.

This was the funniest movie I've seen in many years. There were so many big laughs that I'll have to see this again just to hear the lines I missed, because the audience was laughing so hard.

Some movie trailers look funny, and when you see the movie you're disappointed because you've seen all the funny parts already. Not this one. The actual movie was far more fun than the trailer showed.

Here's what I liked about this movie:

- Melissa McCarthy was utterly hilarious, as was Sandra Bullock. They're fantastic comedic actresses. The rest of the cast was also fantastic.

- The two actresses had major buddy cop chemistry. They played off each other perfectly.

- The script was really well done. There were so many surprises, twists and turns that the story kept me totally interested. Plus there was plenty of action.

And there were so many hysterically funny bits and lines that I haven't laughed that much and that hard in a very long time.

- It was smartly directed with great pacing and timing.

- The characters and relationships had depth, which made it much more interesting than a lot of comedies that are out there.

Parents should know that there was plenty of foul language and some crude stuff.

I'd highly recommend this movie for adults who want to laugh a lot, and who like action and suspense movies. It's a movie I'd enjoy owning.

Format:Blu-ray
If you have not noticed by now, Amazon groups ALL reviews of ALL formats of a movie release together so I always recommend that customers note the format being reviewed and - better yet - sort the reviews by " most recent". That said, this a a review of the Bluray combo pack.

There are already 70 reviews of the "film" posted as I write this and nearly all concentrate on the film itself, so I will not spend a lot of space on that (you can read the others) except to say that I found it a fun film to watch, especially watching Sandra Bullock out of her element. I'll admit that I have not seen "The Bridesmaids" so this was my first opportunity to see Melissa McCarthy (and her mouth) in action. I guess I find the profanity a bit forced (and there for "shock value") but there were some funny lines.

Okay, now to give you info on the BD/DVD. First off, the package includes BOTH the Theatrical (R rated) version and the "Unrated" version. The R runs an hour and 57 minutes while the Unrated one adds three more minutes. I chose to watch the longer one but, since I don't plan to watch the film again, I can't tell you which three minutes were added back. I will say that the cuts must have been for language or violence (there is a gruesome scene in which a man is saved from choking and that could be it) because there is no nudity here. (Bullock doesn't even show much cleavage in the "drunken night" scene.)

The package touts "2 Hours of Hysterical Bonus Features" and I got through some of those, which include: "How THE HEAT was made", "Von Bloopers", "Let's Get Physical - on the stunts, and one called "All the Stuff We Had to Take Out But Still Think Is Funny - Deleted, Alternate & Extended Scenes".
