Will 'The Heat' leave you cold, or is it gold?


When it comes to comedies, I love to sit back, enjoy a little popcorn and a lot of laughs. And I had plenty of laugh-out-loud moments watching "The Heat." But if four-letter words hurt your ears, this is not for you. If that doesn't bother you, enjoy!

Bullock and McCarthy play unlikely partners in crime-fighting. Sandra's a straight-laced know-it-all FBI agent, and Melissa's a tough-talking Boston cop with a don't-mess-with-me attitude. They're forced to work together to catch a bad guy, and it's a clash of chemistry.

Paul Feig, who directed Melissa in "Bridesmaids," is the man behind this one. He's not afraid of bold comedy, bad words and sheer silliness.

I found it fun watching Sandra flex her comedy muscles in a new way, and Melissa is just fearless in her quest to make you laugh.

"The Heat" turns into a true buddy comedy, and I think it'll appeal to men and women alike. This does not qualify under the "chick flick" category -- not even close.

"The Heat" is unfiltered and it's unapologetic about it. I'm not saying it's a great movie, but I thought it was great fun. I left with a smile. Mission accomplished.
