Funny in places! - The Heat review by Pacino247

Spoiler Alert
26/01/2014

Review:

This movie start out to be quite funny but then it goes downhill after a while. If they would have made it shorter without some of the ridiculous scenes, then it would have been much better, but it just seemed to drag after a while. The chemistry between the 2 characters was great but some of the scenes, like the dancing scene, went a bit too far. Apart from that, it's harmless fun which obviously went down well at the box office. Watchable!

Round-Up:

It's hard to believe that Sandra Bullock came out with this film in the same year of Gravity, which is supposed to be a magnificent movie. She isn't on the big screen as much as she was in the 90's, but she has been making some great choices in the latter part of her career. As for Melissa McCarthy, she just can't seem to do anything wrong nowadays. For someone who played a cameo in Bridesmaids, she has totally blown-up since then. If you watch the movie on DVD, I think that you will enjoy the out takes more than the whole movie.

Budget: $43million

Worldwide Gross: $230million

I recommend this movie to people who are into there cop comedies. 5/10

Good entertaining fun - The Heat review by AB

Spoiler Alert

Sandra Bullock got her part spot on in this film - uptight but beneath the surface is a rebel wanting to get out - and she was far better than I thought she was going to be, especially up against Melissa McCarthy, who does what she always does in acting the loud-mouthed slob, but both actresses help make the film, which was amusing in the most part and funny in others, with a storyline that helped everyone make the most of their characters.

Critic review

The Heat review by Alyse Garner - Cinema Paradiso

Taking a twist on the buddy-cop comedy drama genre the Heat sees Sandra Bullock as the uptight FBI agent paired with a loud mouthed partner who ultimately helps her to grow, the key of course being that for once both cops are women.

With Bullock as Sarah Ashburn and Melissa McCarthy as Shannon Mullins the film follows the same general outline as one would expect of the genre; suddenly paired together the two cops can’t help but clash due to their incredibly different personalities. But forced to work together to catch an infamous drug lord these two begin to realise perhaps their not quite so chalk and cheese after all. With a sprinkling of humour and action in for good measure the Heat is a good attempt at feminizing this overly masculine genre, ultimately however there just aren’t enough fresh ideas brought to the table to make the Heat stand out from a crowd of daft Sandra Bullock movies.

Bridesmaids director Paul Feig lets the actors do much of the work here, which thanks to both Bullock and McCarthy, leaves the film as at least reasonably enjoyable. However the rather ambling story could have done with a stronger directorial hand to bring some imagination to its predictable outcome; what do you expect however from a TV screenwriter, who despite her successful small screen credits (Katie Dippold is best known for writing and producing MADtv and Parks and Recreation) doesn’t manage to write in enough meat to hold up the extended runtime of a feature film.

The Heat isn’t bad, and it might please a few in the female audience to see a popular genre like this given a bit of feminine grace, but as someone who remembers when Sandra Bullock was in Speed rather than Miss Congeniality I can’t say this girl was particularly impressed.
