Melissa McCarthy's Next Movie
You may well have seen the trailer already. (There was a commercial on the Oscars just the other night.)
It's The Heat, directed by the Bridesmaids guy.
"Uptight FBI special agent Sandra Bullock is paired with testy Boston cop Melissa McCarthy to take down a ruthless drug lord. The hitch--neither woman has ever had a partner--or a friend for that matter."
So it's buddy-buddy with two ladies who have no buddies.
Well, guess which one is a bull in a china shop?
And guess which one wears Spanx?
Will the resulting romp be a riot when it opens later this year, or will it prove that Melissa needs an identity thief to change her belligerent screen image?
Check it out and see if you find heat in The Heat.
