Now that the weekend is here, it is time to check out another great movie. My weekend movie suggestion is The Heat staring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. Last night, I had the pleasure of sharing this awesome movie with my buddy Sheldon. I can only speak for myself, but I don’t think we have laughed so hard at a film in a long time.
Bullock plays the character of an uptight FBI agent tasked with a case to take down a drug lord in Boston to prove to her boss that she is ready for a promotion. Upon her arrival, she finds herself forced to work with a foul-mouthed, local police officer played by McCarthy. These two phonetical female comedians will have you rolling between the seats laughing.
This film was directed by Paul Feig, who also directed the 2011 comedy Bridesmaids. This movie features great laughs, big explosions, an awesome cast, and a great storyline to go with it. Be advised that there is a lot of foul language, but I felt it was tastefully used in character and along with the story line. That being said, this movie is certainly not one that I would bring the kids to.
I’d give this movie 10 thumbs up if I had that many, but I am limited to only 2. Trust me though, this gets two REALLY big thumbs up. Check out the trailer below and let me know your thoughts on the movie in the comments. Have an awesome weekend!
