FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a methodical investigator with a long-standing reputation for excellence -- and arrogance. In contrast, foul-mouthed, hot-tempered detective Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) goes with her gut instincts and street smarts to remove criminals from the streets of Boston. Sparks fly when these polar opposites have to work together to capture a drug lord, but in the process, they become the last thing anyone expected -- buddies.

In typical buddy-film fashion, Bullock and McCarthy make a hilarious pairing as two law-people with opposite ways of getting things done. The dialogue is funny when it‚Äôs not crude, and the action has a way of being surprising, even in stock situations. Good, if not clean, fun.
There are some racy outfits, violent images, and an extended drunk scene in The Heat, but the real work ClearPlay gets is cutting 50-percent of everything that comes out of Melissa McCarthy‚Äôs mouth. ClearPlay removes about 300 profanities, half of them the F-word... <a href="https://www.clearplay.com/MovieDash.aspx?id=4545" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>November 10th, 2013 · Details

Bullock and McCarthy are both terrifically appealing and talented actresses and they have such evident pleasure in playing these roles that they are fun to watch.

The film contains a frivolous view of promiscuity, much sexual humor, frequent instances of profanity and excessive rough and crude language.July 2nd, 2013 · Details
I laughed until I was nearly in tears ‚Äî not just occasionally, but throughout the entire film. Even the oft-clueless studio, Twentieth Century Fox, knows it has struck gold and has already approved a sequel for a film it hadn‚Äôt even released yet ‚Äî a rare event.
So, hat‚Äôs off to Bullock and McCarthy for bringing their A-game to one of, if not THE, funniest films of 2013... <a href="http://go.standard.net/movies/reviews/the-heat-is-spot-on-bullock-mccarthy-bring-their-a-games" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>June 28th, 2013 · Details

The Heat is fresher than a lot of the male-centric movies it takes off from, because there's little about aggressive guy banter that hasn't been worn to the ground by Hollywood... <a href="http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20687787,00.html" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>
