Watch the Trailer for Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s Buddy Cop Movie
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy have to be two of the most well-liked actresses in Hollywood, so we can only imagine how overjoyed studio execs were to have them team up in The Heat, Paul Feig’s highly-anticipated followup to Bridesmaids. Instant box office success! But here’s the thing: casting two female leads in a buddy cop comedy isn’t enough to make the material feel fresh. Sure, there’s something kind of amusing about watching McCarthy threaten people with physical harm, but we were hoping for a movie with a little more edge. Instead, this looks more like Miss Congeniality 3, complete with a wacky dance number and a joke about Spanx. We can only hope that they’re saving all of the good stuff for the red band version.
