"Oscar Winner Sandra Bullock and Oscar Nominee Melissa McCarthy are a 'dynamite duo' (George Pennacchio, KABC-TV) in this outrageously funny comedy from the director of Bridesmaids, Paul Feig. Uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock) and foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins (McCarthy) couldn't be more incompatible. But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected...buddies."--Container.

Even though I'm not a fan of that fat foul mouth heifer Melissa McCarthy , This movie wastes that talent of Sandra Bullock who's suckered into doing a movie like that. A Jay & Silent Bob movie is way more funnier than that nonsense.

Too much swearing. I love these actresses Bullock and McCarthy but the script and/or writers for this movie did not give them good material to work with. :(

Special Agent Sarah and detective Shannon may both be working together to take down a drug lord, but they are also as different as can be. Sarah has become both methodical and self absorbed while working at the FBI, whereas Shannon is rude and sloppy, yet has the experience to back herself up. The hilarious duo may not always get along, but that makes the film very entertaining for the audience. As movies tend to be, some scenes were overdramatized and not very realistic, however, the action of the film makes up for it. I would rate this movie 3.5/5 stars and recommend it to those who like car chases and comedy. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The Heat is a hilarious action movie about an FBI agent and a local cop who are working together on a case but they absolutely hate each other at first. As the movie progresses, they get to know and understand each other better and soon enough become the best of friends. Sandra Bullock and Melissa Mccarthy are both renowned and absolutely amazing actresses that flawlessly bring their characters in this movie to life. There is a lot of foul language and violence so I would recommend this movie for older teens, so around 16 or 17 and over.

The movie The Heat is a comedy movie. It is for ages 16 and above because it had a lot of bad words and some bad scenes. If I would rate this movie out of 10 stars I would choose 7 or 6 because it was funny and I liked the ending but the bad words were a lot - that's why I didn't like it. This movie made me laugh actually a lot because both of the characters were really good. If this movie had less bad words it would be better and more fun to watch and younger kids like 14 will be able to watch it too.

I love both of these women (but especially Melissa McCarthy, she plays tough and scary SO well), put them together and they're just nuts.

Laugh out loud funny!

Love this movie. I laughed out loud many times.

I am a fan of Bullock, and McCarthy. but I hardly laughed. Vulgar language / swear words usually gets a chuckle out of me when used by anyone. Not this time.
Good action scenes and good cast. Too bad there was a missing element.

I really enjoy a movie that makes me laugh out loud. I'm still laughing two days later.

It was fun and touching.
I'm impressed by the two main actresses' performances.
I recommend this movie, and personally, I liked it very much.

Funny movie, and I'm not a MM fan at all. Not as good as Miss Congeniality, but still LOL.

Too many 'F' words. The word looses it's effect when it is said several times in every sentence spoken. Love Sandra Bullock, usually, but not in this movie!
