    The first time I saw The Heat, I thought it was very dull. But now I seem to be getting more of the jokes, the innuendo and the subtext (Sandra Bullock: "What is this, some sort of putty?" Melissa McCarthy: "It's a used condom." - implying Sandra Bullock's character had never seen one before). The jokes are quite layered, it is actually smarter than Spy (in parts) or Ghostbusters (75%). Makes me wonder if they tried to dumb down the humor in the following movies, make it more physical, so more people would enjoy it? English isn't my first language and I've studied up on American pop culture heavily in the past five years so after revisiting it, I think The Heat is actually the best Paul Feig Film out there. 5 years 10 months ago

    The Heat is very much the prototype for Feig's brand of genre film comedy, as better realized in Spy and Ghostbusters, but ultimately, its only real innovation is casting female stars in typically male roles. Otherwise, it's your standard buddy cop comedy, in the mold of, say, the original Bad Boys. Sandra Bullock more or less plays her character from Miss Congeniality, while Melissa McCarthy tips her usual screen persona more towards the angry slob end of the spectrum, but they're the cops on the edge that are always getting into trouble with their superiors yet get results, who hate working with one another until the film's crucible makes them bond. Played by males, I'd say we'd have seen it all. With women, there's a freshness there that moves the action and characterization in places it otherwise wouldn't. Fun an undemanding, not yet as crisp as Feig's later efforts would be. 7 years 10 months ago
