"The Heat" Movie Review

***This is a sponsored post,  I was given the product(s) mentioned in exchange for this review.  All opinions are my own!
Earlier this week, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment released a hilarious comedy to Blu-ray and DVD: The Heat.  My husband and I are really big fans of Melissa McCarthy.  We absolutely loved her in the movie Identity Thief and were excited to see this movie.  In The Heat Melissa McCarthy's character (Shannon Mullins) is a cop and a very nontraditional one!  One of my favorite scenes is where she is yelling at her police chief and calling a certain body part of his small.  McCarthy's character must work with Sandra Bullock's character (Sarah Ashburn) who is a FBI agent trying to get a promotion.  The two hate each other at first but become friends after they find that they a both good cops and are seeking justice.  This movie is truly hilarious!  My husband and I found ourselves laughing so hard that we had to pause the movie so that we didn't miss the next scene.  I would highly recommend The Heat for a good laugh!  You'll love it!

Oscar® Winner Sandra Bullock* and Oscar® Nominee Melissa McCarthy** are a “dynamite duo” (George Pennacchio, KABC-TV) in this outrageously funny comedy from the director of Bridesmaids, Paul Feig. Uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock) and foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins (McCarthy) couldn't be more incompatible. But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected...buddies.
