Movie Review: The Heat


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.

A bit more violence than I had expected but definitely very funny. I was almost choking from laughing during the club dance scene
