Review: The Heat

The Heat - Melissa McCarthy

The Heat stars Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy but you might as well call this movie The Melissa McCarthy show. She fills every scene with her huge, in-your-face presence. It’s supposed to be a buddy cop movie but Sandra Bullock gets squeezed out of every scene.  But here’s the thing, the movie is pretty damn funny. Melissa McCarthy is obviously ad-libbing through big chunks of the movie and I was holding my sides from laughing so hard. She’s got the rude, crude, heart-of-gold good cop vibe going for her and by the end of the movie, after you catch your breath from all that laughing, you’ll realize that you’ve been inspired to go curse in the face of someone who really needs to be cursed at.
