Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence--and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins, one of Boston P.D.'s "finest," is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: Buddies.

Was this supposed to be a comedy? There was nothing funny about this movie. I didn't laugh once. Maybe one thing that had something to do with it was the dozens of laws that they broke. If they were to do anything that they did in this movie their careers would have been over instantly. I'm a trained police officer so maybe the average citizen wouldn't notice how illegal the activities are that they did. It made this movie ridiculous at times because obviously the writers were either incompetent of the law or they sacrificed the law for comedy and dramatization. Sandra Bullock can't pull off a role where she would be perceived as "bad ass". Typical Melissa McCarthy role. She did a pretty good job in it though. By far the best part of this movie was seeing Biff from Back To the Future and Tim from Heavyweights in a movie again. Although not a boring movie it wasn't funny at all for a comedy and shouldn't be taken seriously. 5/10
I absolutely loved this movie. Bullock and McCarthy were a great choice for their roles. Bullock, has had some previous experience portraying a police officer, played the role of uptight agent to a T. McCarthy, as usual, was hilarious. The plot was a little predictable and it was the typical agent and rogue cop versus drug dealer scenario, but that is to be expected. I thought going in that it would be a chick flick, but I enjoyed it very much and intend on grabbing a copy for myself. It was refreshing to see hey good comedy movie in today's film industry.
It's no surprise that this movie will be a cinematic hit to audiences 17+, and even to select teens who are allowed to view R rated movies. Despite the strong language/drug & alcohol references/sexual themes, the movie is very funny and very appealing.
From the start of the movie the audience is hooked, as Bullock's character is introduced; an uptight, very proper, and clearly an "I-know-everything" "best-of-the-best" FBI agent who wins every single case in crime, and ts the bad guys away. Going for promotion, her attitude is cocky, she knows she's going to get it by a long shot, until her boss tells her she isn't getting it because of her attitutde. He then tells her to take down a powerful drug lord, and they can talk about a promotion.
arthy, the very comedy of the whole film. A rugged, tough, cruddy car driving cop, who takes down the bad guys with physical force. Every line spoken is something to chuckle at or roll in your seat late
