    The Heat (2013) starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy

    ‘The Heat’ Trailer: Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy As Buddy Cops

    Even with women in roles typically held by men, the trailer outlines a premise that is similar to many films we’ve seen before. Bullock plays Sarah Ashburn, the methodical, uptight, slightly insecure, straight-shooting detective against McCarthy’s wild, foul-mouthed, loose-cannon with street smarts character, Shannon Mullins. Of course, the pair doesn’t exactly get along after first meeting each other, but are forced to become partners and learn to work together.

    However, as we know, the formula can and does work when executed well and admittedly, there are some humorous, even laugh-out-loud moments in the trailer, including a scene where Mullins discovers Ashburn wears spanx in the women’s restroom and a scene where the two accidentally drop a suspect from a balcony while attempting to interrogate him.
    McCarthy and Bullock, who have both made solid comedic turns before, (McCarthy in Bridesmaids earned her an Academy Award nomination, which is rare for a comedic performance) add to the film’s promise, but perhaps even more promising for the film’s potential success is Feig behind the camera. After all, he’s pulled off this type of gender role-reversal before with Bridesmaids, a film featuring a female ensemble that was certainly as raunchy and as funny as many of the films led by male casts in recent years (The Hangover being the most obvious comparison).

    We’re bound to see more clips and trailers before The Heat hits theatres, but so far, fans of the buddy cop genre, and of McCarthy and Bullock, will probably like what they see.

    The Heat is currently scheduled for an April 5th, 2013 release.

    Action and Comedy Sizzle in "THE HEAT"



    ACTION AND COMEDY SIZZLE IN “THE HEAT”
    via press release

    Director Paul Feig reinvigorates the buddy cop genre by pairing Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock and breakout star Melissa McCarthy as law enforcers with wildly different styles in “The Heat.”

    Set in Boston, the movie follows Sarah Ashburn (Bullock), a rigid FBI agent forced to team up with Shannon Mullins (McCarthy), a brash undercover Boston street cop to track a ruthless drug lord. Ashburn is a straight-laced, patient, methodical investigator known for her excellence, while Mullins is very short fused and none has ever had a partner or a long time friend. This wildly dysfunctional duo must try to catch this high-powered criminal without killing one another in the process.

    Director Feig enthused on Bullock’s and McCarthy’s pairing, “I’m excited about doing a female buddy cop comedy because I can only think of a couple that have come along in the last 20 years and I don’t think they were particularly great. To me, though, I’m not looking at it as two women - it’s just two of the funniest people I know. Melissa, who I’ve worked with and is hilarious, and then Sandy who I’ve always been a fan of who is also hilarious. What I like is they have two different senses of humor and two different styles of comedy and the two complement each other.”

    In a genre mostly dominated by men, Feig shares that the pairing is an ideal mix. “Sometimes you come up with these combos in your head and then you put them together and they don’t work at all. But we had a little rehearsal down in Atlanta when Melissa was doing another movie, and the minute they started reading together, I thought, “Okay, this is funny.”Now they’re actuallythe best of friends and onscreen the chemistry between them is great because of this, and they both bring aspects of themselves to each of their characters – they balance each other out great. Sandy’s so funny at playing the uptight nerdy-but-officious person and then Melissa’s character is just all street smarts and brawn and force. I set them loose and then just get to sit behind the monitor and laugh – I’m amazed at what they’re discovering and coming up with,” Feig continues.

    Directing the raucous comedy that is “The Heat” has its unwritten rules too according to Feig. “My criteria for comedy is it has to have an emotional core, first and foremost. It also has to have believable characters, even if they’re doing big crazy things or they’re big personalities. It’s not necessarily about jokes – it’s the behavioral aspect of it, and the way they’re reacting off each other. Jokes sometimes land like lead because they just sound very written, but a funny reaction to something makes it funnier. With the Internet and YouTube we’re seeing so much real live comedy just in these videos of people with their friends - that is funnier to us than a very overwritten story. So we have our great script, and although we don’t deviate from it too much, we try to do it in a way where the actorsmake it their own and they’re talking like people do to each other in real life,” shares Feig.


    “The Heat” opens June 27 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

    Just got home from the press screening and some thoughts (full review on Thursday when it opens locally)

    It didn't start well because it felt uninspired as Melissa was once again playing an obnoxious, foul-mouthed lady that whenever she curses (which was almost every line she had in the beginning) it's so annoying already. Bullock's character was quite bland and felt like Sandra was just phoning it in. But when the two had scenes together well it got really better and funnier! Sandra and Melissa play off each other VERY well! It was so fun to watch them banter and do some silly stuff together. The story got interesting as it progresses as well as the case they're working on had some real danger on it and you'd be surprised how violent it is (and not just in the comedic way). In fact, this is bloodier than World War Z! I also think the movie did a good job humanizing both Sandra's and Melissa's characters and just like in Identity Thief, Melissa can do touches of drama so I hope she'll have projects that can showcase that she can play a character other than the aggressive big lady with a foul mouth. Sandra Bullock is so charming and she can do physical comedy really well

    There's still some cheap humor in it and some unnecessary scenes (the choking scene should have been cut IMO) but mostly it worked thanks to the leads.
