My thanks to Collider for the clips package. I’m really on the fence about this one – I want it to be funny but it looks more of the Identity Thief comedy vein of how funny and awkward overweight people are, especially girls, when they swear and carry on. I could be way wrong! I hope I am! It has massive comedy pedigree behind it in Paul Feig, Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy so I’m probably way of mark!
Synopsis: Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence–and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy), 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. From Paul Feig, the director of “Bridesmaids.”
