About The Heat
Two mismatched cops learn the value of teamwork in this comedy from the director of Bridesmaids. Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is an extremely competent and ambitious FBI agent. She has an eye on a promotion when her current boss (Demian Bichir) vacates his position, but he tells her that she needs to prove that she can work well with others. Unfortunately, despite being good at her job she is also uptight and socially inept. When Ashburn is sent to Boston to uncover the identity of a powerful drug lord, she sees the chance to shine. However, she is soon paired with Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy), a local policewoman who forces her way onto the case. Ashburn needs Mullins' knowledge of the area but can't stand her violent and unorthodox ways. Can they learn to be friends?
