From the director of Bridesmaids and Nurse Jackie

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.

Haven't seen Sandra Bullock as good since "Two Weeks Notice" where she was, as well, some sort of uptight, more on the hippie side tho... And Melissa McCarthy, oh well, she is in her best style, pretty much the same character as in Bridesmaids, vulgar, violent, fast and witty. So the movie gets to drive us on a wild ride with those two, which therefor doesn't need much of a plot. But there is. Ok, it is not the brightest thriller of all time, the story holds, and who cares, all we wanna see is how the two phenomenons can actually get the job done. And it is funny. Ah, the trailer is funny, and you would think they put it all in it, as I did. But they actually didn't. There is MUCH more to come in the movie.
