This is a fun film. Despite the very implausible story line, The Heat has a lot going for it. There is plenty of action and lots of snappy dialog. The film is peppered with expletives that could be argued is a bit much, but the casting is so well done that most of it fits the story. There are a many scenes that are very, very funny. Some of the scenes are a bit long and the banter is a bit over the top, but somehow the film works. However, when the characters try to get deep and meaningful, they don't exactly pull it off. Maybe if they were teenagers it would seem more believable.
There is a lot of great camera work and the action scenes are well executed. The Heat doesn’t have CGI or a bunch of special effects. The stunt work is really good, too. It is refreshing to see a movie that relies on the acting of the cast and not on the post production stuff.
Bullock and McCarthy are "The Heat" - and they make this pic a load of fun to watch - highly recommend it!
Personally the court is still out on Melissa McCarthy for me. She goes well over the top sometimes and by doing so misses the mark. It causes her to come off as crude instead of funny and that dampens the comedic fires. She needs to watch Bullock who is an absolute master of knowing exactly how far to go and pulling up just a tad short. Of course the two women are very different and McCarthy's appearance requires her to be more aggressive. Still, the art of knowing when to suggest, rather than impose even the coarsest of punchlines, is something that McCarthy is yet to learn. A work in progress.
