I meant to post this more than a week ago but life got the best of me. Plus I was still grumbly over being stood up.
But I'm long over it now. And I see that the movie comes to theaters nationwide today. So the review is a now or never sort of thing.
Let me preface this by saying that I am rather square. I don't like potty humor. Actually I don't even get half of it. I don't like dumb humor either. I own my personality and make it work for me (I hope).
I sort of thought this movie might be full of both of those. And I mean, it sort of was. Not in a gross or raunchy way, though. Other than the language (Melissa's character uses the F word every other sentence), it was not bad at all. And truly, I have not laughed that hard in ages.
The Heat was really well written and acted. Sandra Bullock's character was sort of like me in real life, now that I think about it. She's the square in the movie. But she's so endearing and funny. And Melissa McCarthy (side note: did you know that she and Jenny McCarthy are cousins?) is HILARIOUS. She is so over the top funny, I was nearly crying a few times.
If you are in the mood to just forget about the world for two hours and laugh until your side hurts, I completely recommend The Heat. It has a really cute ending, too.
Have you seen any great (or terrible) movies lately? Are you looking forward to anything coming out soon? I rarely see movies so I'm not typically in the know about what's hot and what's not in this department.
