Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy bring ‘The Heat’ in new film


The Heat
Stars:  Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy, Demian Bichir, Marlon Wayans

Oscar and Felix of TV’s “The Odd Couple” make their cinematic debut Friday, June 28. Melissa McCarthy plays the rumpled, out of control Oscar to Sandra Bullock’s fretful Felix in this tour de force of comedic genius. Bullock is a by-the-book FBI agent whose fellow agents disklike her. McCarthy is a Beantown detective who is equally loathed by her fellow officers, so it makes perfect sense to pair the two misfits together on a big drug case. Mullins (McCarthy) is pretty much a sociopath, which makes for highly dramatic (and hilarious) situations when she teams up with the reactionary Ashburn (Bullock). –p.d. lee
