The Heat

They're just trying to stay alive long enough to kill each other.


The Heat
Another mismatched cop-buddy film, this time featuring two female protagonists. An uptight FBI Special Agent has to team up with a foul-mouthed Boston cop to bring down a ruthless drug lord. As per the normal arc for such films, they become buddies. Expect a lot of bad language, as well as the possibility of people walking out.

117 minutes.
