Paul Feig's "The Heat" follows nearly all of the buddy-cop genre clichés, but the pairing of Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy give this film it's own charm. McCarthy's rough, foul-mouthed cop is a perfectly awkward match with Bullock's by-the-book character. The character's are well-written and developed enough that we can connect with them on some level. The story is formulaic for the genre, which means it is fun, but very predictable. The supporting cast does a good job acting, there are no real notable performances in the support, but they do solidly in their roles. The jokes are not overly raunchy, but are mostly all very funny. A lot of gags were seamlessly written in the script and nothing seems forced in the dialogue. This movie is not aiming to more than it appears to be. It is a fun, and oftentimes hilarious buddy-cop film with two great leads. Overall, I give this film a 7/10.
