Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy Bring 'The Heat' in the First Trailer
Next year is going to be a big one for Melissa McCarthy. She'll be sharing the screen as a co-lead in Identity Theft with Jason Bateman and she'll also be joining Sandra Bullock going back to her Miss Congeniality roots for The Heat. The buddy cop comedy from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig looks like standard crime comedy fare, and Bullock and McCarthy seem to have some great chemistry. However, I wish there were some more hearty laughs to be had as not much original seems to be on display in the first trailer. It's fun to see Tom F. Wilson (Back to the Future) and Kaitlin Olson ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelpha") in small roles though. But will it be as funny as Bridesmaids? We'll find out. Watch below!
Here's the first official trailer for Paul Feig's comedy The Heat, originally from Apple:
FBI Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a top investigator with a reputation for excellence and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy), one of Boston P.D.'s "finest," is foul-mouthed, has a short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. The Heat is directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, "The Office") and written by Katie Dippold ("Parks & Recreation") and hits theaters April 5th, 2013. Funny?
