TOUGH AS BITCHES

3 out of 5 stars

When you put two people that are polar opposites in a team, you get The Heat. Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is straight-laced FBI agent while Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) is a foul-mouthed and violent detective. An unexpected bond results when they team up to take down a Boston drug lord.

It takes a while to warm up to this pairing especially after Sandra Bullock’s character chastises those K9 dogs for their inability to sniff out drugs beyond the smell of meat. The fun starts whenever Melissa McCarthy is around. She may be foul-mouthed and swears like a sailor but she is very entertaining. The funniest scenes often occur whenever Mullins is bossing Ashburn around – whether it is on the dancefloor or in the warehouse. The diner straw scene is super disturbing!

If there’s a sequel, I’ll be there!
